“I have known Stan Kowalski for many years and over that time he has always demonstrated a high level of professionalism and quality of work.  Stan always gives you solutions with options to whatever problem you are experiencing.  His response time and understanding of the way we work in outpatient orthopedics is what makes him the go-to guy in equipment service and calibration.  I give him my highest recommendation. “

“Over the last twenty years working as a clinician and educator, I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of companies that provide calibration and safety inspections for therapeutic modalities. I can honestly say that the performance of SKI Therapeutic Modality Calibration & Repair Services far exceeds all of my previous experiences. Stan’s knowledge in the field and responsiveness to specific customer needs is unsurpassed! He provides high quality service at a very reasonable price. In tight economic times, you can trust Stan to provide a multitude of options for therapeutic modality repair and reconditioning. I have been continually impressed with Stan’s desire to give back to his customers and the rehabilitation professions through his generous grant program. I strongly recommend SKI for all of your therapeutic modality calibration and repair needs.”

“Our company has been with Stan for as long as he has been in operation! His work is always consistent and he keeps us on schedule for our calibrations! I never have to call him because he calls when it is time and sets up an appointment. Additionally, when we have a crisis with a broken machine, he always responds to my phone call the first time and makes the time to come by ASAP. His character and integrity are why I believe his business is successful, and why we know he will give us the best service. He is consistent in high work performance and he provides us with consistent, reliable service!”

Connie Dupree, PT

“Stan has been an integral part of the care that Greensboro College was able to provide to our patients and students athletes. He has always been the consummate professional when servicing our modality equipment and educating future clinicians about the ins and outs of calibration and electrical safety. Whenever we had a question, needed upgrades, or weren’t able to determine if our equipment was malfunctioning, Stan was available to assist us, diagnose the problem, and find a suitable solution and repair in a timely manner and at a reasonable cost. That level of service is invaluable. “

“When Stan and his wife established the Professional Equipment Grant for the North Carolina Athletic Trainers Association, it was obvious that they were concerned about providing the tools that practicing clinicians need to care for secondary school athletes. They’ve never sought recognition for their efforts, but they’ve made a significant impact on the schools that they serve.”

It is my pleasure to write this testimonial regarding Stan Kowalski and his company S. Kowalski, Inc.

I have known Stan for almost five years now in varying capacities. My first introduction to his company occurred while I was on faculty at Liberty University. Stan serviced our modalities within our Athletic Training Education Program. Though it was from a distance, he was always incredibly professional and efficient at his job.

The second setting, and in my current capacity, Stan is contracted to service all of our modality units within our Sports Medicine program. My introduction from my faculty days has allowed our relationship to grow. Once again, Stan has been the consummate professional and has accommodated our program very well. With six training rooms and multiple modalities, I have found his work ethic to be extraordinary.

Liberty University Sports Medicine looks forward to a long relationship with Stan Kowalski. It’s a privilege having a service provider you can trust and we have that in Stan!”

Stan is absolutely wonderful, personable, and professional. His work is very efficient and thorough. He makes his customers feel comfortable and will explain his processes as he works. The reports provided following service are clear and easy to understand. Stan is always willing to answer any question his customers may have and in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend Stan to everyone for all of their calibration needs.

Theresa Widmer, MACCC-SLP Rehab Program Manager Genesis Rehab Services

“S. Kowalski, Inc. has provided service to our institution for over 10 years. Stan is very dependable, courteous, professional and always willing to help. He has been very helpful with all of our needs, whether it be orders, repairs, sales, or calibrations. Definitely one of the best vendors I’ve worked with!”

Melissa Davis
Head Athletic Trainer Emory & Henry College Emory, VA

“Stan has been a huge asset to our numerous rehab departments throughout North Carolina! He maintains the schedule for their equipment inspections/calibrations and takes the initiative to contact us when it is time for an annual appointment. Stan has been able to make repairs at times saving us costly replacement of equipment. He demonstrates his professionalism and commitment to the community as well when he accepts donations of equipment we can no longer use and puts them to good work with school athletic trainers. Stan is always very responsive when we have an urgent need for an unscheduled visit. He maintains the records, requests to be informed if equipment is moved between sites so he can stay organized, sends us electronic versions, and has located past records for a department in need. I have worked with other companies in the past that could not demonstrate the consistent quality of service that Stan Kowalski has provided to us for over 10 years.”

Sandy Christos, M.S., CCC-SLP Clinical Specialist
Genesis Rehab Services

“Stan Kowalski has provided exceptional service to my practice for over 20 years.

“High Point University has been working with S. Kowalski, Inc. for a number of years now. Stan is always available to answer any questions about the modalities that we may be having issues with. On a number of occasions I have called Stan to help us with issues and he has taken time out of his day to troubleshoot over the phone or physically stop by the athletic training room to make recommendations. Also, Stan’s support of local high schools through his professional equipment grant to advance athletic training at that level speaks of his integrity as a professional and willingness to help those high school athletic trainers that may not have the funding to purchase such equipment.”

“As SKI, Stan has been servicing my physical therapy equipment since March 2003. Prior to that date, Stan had serviced my equipment when he was employed by another company. So I have known Stan for at least 15 years. When Stan started his own company in March 2003, I elected to stay with him. My reasons for staying were based upon his character, outstanding service and fair pricing. Since Stan has been servicing my company’s equipment, I can’t remember any break-downs. I attribute this to his excellent PM service and my staff’s training.

As a healthcare practitioner, I would highly recommend SKI as your service provider for your medical equipment.”

“It is without reservation that I recommend Stan Kowalski for his therapeutic modality calibration and repair services! I have known Stan for nearly 20 years both professionally and personally. Professionally, during each of those years Stan has been extremely efficient in responding to repair needs and assisting in maintaining calibration records.

Since opening our clinic he has helped us locate a used treatment table, advised us about selling our whirlpool, and is always faithful in scheduling our yearly maintenance checks to keep our equipment in working order. We appreciate his immediate phone assistance in response to our questions or problems and he provides prompt on-site ad hoc visits. In addition, he does this in his pleasant, friendly, and professional manner and always responds to our needs in the most economical way possible. We have always trusted his judgment and advice.”

“I have used Stan Kowalski to perform our treatment modality calibrations and safety checks for many years. His knowledge and workmanship is top notch and second to none. He is always willing to share that knowledge with student athletic trainers, explaining it in ways they and even I can understand. I truly believe he has a warm spot in his heart for secondary school athletic trainers. He understands the limited budget most of us have to operate under. Through the generosity of his Professional Equipment Grant he has and continues to provide young and upcoming high school athletic trainers with refurbished modalities. Most of all, Stan has been a longtime friend. Not only me, but to many athletic trainers throughout North Carolina and beyond. It is always a true to pleasure, not to mention peace of mind in doing business with SKI.”

Gayle Conner

“We have used Stan Kowalski’s calibration services for our therapeutic modality equipment for several years. Stan is always accommodating to our scheduling needs as we have numerous clinical sites that require calibrations. He does a great job scheduling these visits and everyone comments how friendly Stan is. My favorite quality about him is that he’ll always pause to explain what he is doing and how it is done. We commonly have students at clinical sites that will watch him calibrate various equipment. With a busy schedule, it’s impressive that he’ll stop for a quick learning experience yet stays on task to keep his schedule.”

I would recommend S. Kowalski, Inc. to anyone who is looking for a company you can rely on to do it right every time.”

Amber Kendig MS, CCC-SLP Rehab Program Manager

“I’ve always found Stan to be both professional and personable. He does his job quickly and efficiently, and has always taken the time to really get to know us at the College. His interest in getting to know our program and department needs are genuine. I have really appreciated that over the years. I have never hesitated to recommend Stan to anyone that needed his services… he is a true professional.” D.C. Cobler, Ed.D., ATC Program Director, ATEP Emory & Henry College Emory, VA

“Our athletic training clinic has enjoyed the opportunity to develop a relationship with Stan Kowalski. With his expertise in medical equipment calibration, detailed approach, willingness to help, and his refreshingly pleasant personality, doing business with Stan is always a pleasure.

He works around our schedule, sends pleasant reminders, and creates documentation in a reliable fashion. After our on-site inspection and calibrations, we are confident in his thoroughness, believe in the results, and were able to catch up with a friend.”

“Stan Kowalski serves an essential role in my physical therapy practice. He has been servicing my medical equipment for years. Calibrating is his forte, as well as a sterling character, exemplified recently when I had to decide whether to purchase a new ultra-sound machine or replace the applicator. Stan was generous with his time on the phone, listened to my needs, reviewed with me several options, and helped me come to a sound solution, all the

while managing to keep his own interests clearly stated so as not to influence my decision in any way but what was best for me. Reliable, timely, knowledgeable of his field, skilled at his trade, Stan makes calibrating and repairing medical equipment into an art.”

Idelle Packer, MS, PT
Owner, Body Sense Physical Therapy Services

“With everything I have to worry about in my job, I am glad that Stan takes that worry away when it comes to our modality equipment.

“Stan has always done a great job with our calibrations. He is very easy to reach if or when we have a problem. He always takes our schedule into consideration when scheduling the calibration so he won’t be in our way while treating patients. The reports are easy to read and professional. I highly recommend Stan for equipment calibrations!”

Kate Shelton

Laurie Miller, PTA

“One of the greatest attributes of working with Stan over the years is his attention to time. Working in the high school and being out during the summer makes it hard to schedule. Stan has always been attentive to time and arrives when he says he will be there and works to get the job done promptly. He is a great communicator and someone you can trust to do the job right. It has been a pleasure to work with Stan over the last ten years and look forward to working with him many more.”

“In a hectic environment, Stan was able to work around my busy schedule and provide excellent service to my existing modalities. Not only that, he was able to bring an old E-STIM machine back to life! I was not only impressed with the quality of work that was done, but also the quality of the person.”

Will Watlington, LAT, ATC

“Stan C. Kowalski has been taking care of our equipment calibration and repair needs since the beginning of our Skyland Physical Therapy private practice in 2004. Stan delivers reliable and excellent service – keeping us up to date with all of our equipment and safety needs. He has helped us sustain older but still operable and safe equipment by replacing parts and helping us save money and time by extending the life of our equipment. Stan is prompt in responding to our needs and is very accommodating, friendly and professional. Stan went out of his way to research parts for an older, but still operable and good condition, high-low table that needed repair. Anyone else would have simply told us to purchase a new table. We highly recommend him and are so fortunate to have him on our therapy delivery team.”

“SKI is more than the name of a business. The name represents exceptional customer service and responsiveness to the needs of the clients Stan serves. Stan Kowalski and I have been working together over the past eight years across the clinical and collegiate settings. Stan’s keen knowledge and professional approach to assisting his clients are second to none. The pricing he gives and options he provides always take into account the barriers we all face with cost containment without compromising quality of service. The character and integrity of how Stan chooses to run his business is the direct reason why I continue to use his services. Stan always goes above and beyond what I ask, is responsive to my concerns and is a great communicator. As long as I am in my position to need SKI’s services I will only need one man, and one name…which is SKI. You will not regret taking your business to SKI!”

“I’m the Director of a large outpatient orthopedic facility and have been working with Stan since we opened in 2000. I greatly appreciate the fact that he always pre-arranges the date and time to calibrate our equipment in order to avoid interfering with patient treatment times. Stan responds promptly to all my emails and phone calls and finds the least expensive options for repairs/replacements for me. Not long ago, I had a Vectra machine malfunctioning and Stan took the time to explain to me how to replace the fuse rather than call him. I find Stan to be very knowledgeable, honest, reliable, and cost conscious. We have 2 clinics and I have asked Stan to calibrate the equipment in both offices rather than use the company whom I bought the equipment from.“

Lois Maple PT

“Stan Kowalski has been calibrating my equipment for over 10 years. He is reliable beyond fault, friendly, unobtrusive in the clinic and very professional. I couldn’t ask for better customer service.”

“I have been utilizing the services of S. Kowalski, Inc. for more than 15 years. I initially worked for quite a few years with Stan Kowalski when I was the Clinic Director for an outpatient physical therapy clinic. When I transferred in to the Home Health setting, I contacted Stan to provide calibration services for several locations. Stan has always been dedicated to quality service and reasonable pricing, but in addition to that, he is personable and is willing to work around the needs and schedule of the clinicians and the office. I love working with Stan Kowalski and would highly recommend S.K.I. for your equipment calibration and repair needs!”
