    • Amy K.

      “My son and I absolutely love going to the Three Little Ducks Motor Classes. As a first time mom, I'm learning as much as I can and I'm learning so much in this class. It's also a great opportunity for my son to be around other babies and for me to interact with the other parents.”

    • Nina & Henry K.

      "I'm happy to provide feedback on our experience with Rachel. We absolutely loved our sessions with her. The preliminary assessment was thorough and gave us a good base to start from, Henry liked the exercises and Rachel instructed me how to do them myself. We saw almost immediate improvements and continue to do so. Rachel herself is very pleasant, fun, and of course competent. We really enjoyed having her."

    • Summer R.

      “We love this pediatric physical therapy company and are so glad and even feel lucky to have found Miss Suma and her team! We see Miss Kaleigh weekly for my son's session and couldn't be happier. We live on the north shore and our therapist meets us at grandmas house in Wahiawā which is so much more convenient then driving to town as pediatric pt is very limited. Like I wrote, feeling very lucky and grateful to have found 3 little ducks! Miss Kaleigh is always on time, in a great mood and most important my kiddo loves and looks forward to seeing her. She offers ideas and things for my son to work on in between sessions. She is a breath of fresh air on our Mondays and we look forward to continuing services with her!”

    • Kara G.

      “Dr. Kaleigh is amazing! Dr. Kaleigh is so great with the intense boy energy my son brings. She is gentle but firm with him, which helps to regulate him during the session. Her patience with him helps their bond to grow each session. Every week he looks forward to doing his ‘exercises.’ The improvement we've seen in his physical strength, endurance and balance is truly only because of the amazing team at Three Little Ducks. Besides PT, the community that Dr. Suma has built for new parents is welcoming, nurturing and educational. We Literally Love This Group.”

    • Emily B.

      “Dr. Suma is fantastic! She leads a great kids yoga class that my kids loved. Her energy and enthusiasm really engages the keiki! I highly recommend one of their ‘Ohana yoga classes.”

    • Ciera B.

      “Dr. Suma has been such an amazing resource for us. She is so great with babies and you can tell she truly loves and enjoys what she does. She is so sweet, kind, knowledgeable and made us feel comfortable. We can really trust her and what she does."
