Sam and Melissa DeLong, Owners
Nestled at the base of the northern Utah Wasatch mountain range, there was no better location for owners Sam and Melissa to fulfill their dream of opening a stand-alone hand therapy clinic. With the beauty of the mountains and the year-round outdoor recreation options, it was the perfect location for them to raise their family as well. They started in 2007 with one location in Layton, Utah and have since grown to five clinics in three northern Utah counties. The majestic mountain backdrop provides all of the activities they love to do with their family, skiing, backpacking and more. Owning and building Summit Hand Therapy dream has been an incredible journey! Their hope is that your journey to rehabilitation is like that climb up to the summit. It may be difficult, but once you reach the vista, the work was worth the journey.
Angela Jensen, Director of Billing, Office Manager
Angela Jensen manages our front office team. She trains our front desk staff to provide knowledgeable and friendly service from the patient’s initial contact with Summit Hand Therapy. However great she is at that task, that is not her greatest skill. One of the things that makes Summit Hand Therapy stand out is our billing department. If patients have questions or concerns about their insurance, bill, or the process of continued therapy, Angie will find the answer. She has been with Summit Hand Therapy from its initial start and provides patients with exceptional care beyond therapy. Patients will find that Angie’s knowledge of insurance raises the bar. She was raised in North Ogden, Utah but calls West Point, Utah her home. This is where she and her husband have been raising their four children and breeding the most adorable golden-doodles. Angie loves to backpack, scuba dive, travel and spending time with her husband and children.
