CCA has welcomed many nursing, medical assistant, and nurse practitioner students over the years.  If you are a student who would be willing to share your experience at CCA to be added to this page, we thank you in advance.

Thank you very much,  Joel Rosen and the CCA staff

Patient & Student Testimonials:


Many thanks to you and Krystal for conducting a compassionate, gentle, and professional Urodynamic test for me.  When I have had this test in the past, from other providers, it was a painful and demeaning ordeal.  I thank Dr. Kevin Bigelow for sending me to your fine facility.  From my first phone contact, through you meeting me at the door, to the kind manner in which that you and Krystal performed this very invasive and personal test, your entire staff was very reassuring.  This is obviously not your first rodeo.  You got me to focus when needed, and helped me to get to my "happy place" at critical junctures.  Anyone needing services of this nature please take this statement as a full and complete endorsement of this fine medical practice."

"Dear Joel, Denise, Linda, and Krystal,
Thank you all so much for providing me with a very helpful day of learning about the diagnostic tests and non-surgical interventions available to people facing the upsetting experience of incontinence!  It was a rare opportunity and I appreciated it so much!  You showed the sensitivity and professionalism I would hope for if I were coming to you for help. You guys help people get their quality of life back!

Thank you!"

"Dear Barbara~
Here I am again for a CCA checkup, so my thoughts go to you, of course, as the first and most impressionable NP I met here who eased me through the process of accepting a change in my body and finding the right solution to move forward.  I hope you are doing well, enjoying retirement and yoga and travel, and wish you the very best for the holiday season - may it bring increased peace and goodwill to us and all the world!"

"I am very thankful that I found Continence Center of America in Peoria over 10 years ago.  When I discovered I had a prolapse, I thought I would probably need surgery, but my gynecologist referred me to CCA.  Many doctors recommend surgery right away because they do not realize how great a pessary is, or what it is!  My first practitioner, Barbara, became a good friend and I was comfortable talking to her about anything.  Barbara retired and the new practitioner, Denise, is just as nice and friendly and knowledgeable as Barbara was.  She made me feel like she cares for her patients and she is very knowledgeable.  If you or a loved one have a similar problem, I highly recommend you talk with her at CCA."

"Dear Barbara (aka Barbara the Amazing)
I wanted to thank you for being so wonderful to my friend, S.O.  She felt so much better after her visit with you that she was able to go to the convention with my mom and I.  We all had so much fun together.  It was such a boost to all of our spirits.  I really appreciate you taking extra special care of our sweet friend.  May Jehovah God bless you and reward your kindness.  I just can't thank you enough."

J.K. 8/2017


"Dear Joel,
I just wanted to thank you for allowing me to shadow your team at the clinic.  I learned so much and so many things that they taught in my courses finally made sense once I watched your team care for your patients.  I truly appreciated all your help and encouragement in my journey to be a continence nurse!"

"Dear Joel:
It was my pleasure to speak to you today and thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your intervention with my insurance company.  I am a 65 year old grandmother of seven, work full time, and your kind intervention saved me over $1,200.

You are a Mensch."

"I do not know whose idea it was to have Barbara "the Amazing" at my appointment - but it sure was a combined effort to pull it off!  Your constant caring has made a huge impact on my health!  Thank you always, best surprise ever!  Wow!

Warm regards,"

"Barbara & CCA staff,

Thank you so much for being willing to share your time, expertise, and experience with me - precepting a student is no small task, and it does not go unappreciated.  Please don't hesitate to provide me feedback - I am here to learn and appreciate opportunities for improvement!


A. H., Nurse Practitioner student                 10/2016


"Dear CCA staff,

I want to share my heartfelt thanks to you.  Before I was fitted with a pessary, I had lost my quality of life.  My family would be out, maybe at a mall, and I would have to find a seat while they enjoyed the day.  I could not walk very far at all and had to give up most family activities.  After my first visit to your office, I regained my life.  I can exercise, shop, and I even walked the Grand Canyon!
I now feel comfortable, confident, and secure in all of my activities.  Thank you so much for getting my quality of life back!

"CCA Staff,

It is my privilege to send you this note regarding the outstanding care provided by the CCA. 
CCA staff is outstanding and provides professional exceptional care!  I have been bringing my elderly mom to CCA for many years now.  From the very first visit we have felt the loving care received from the staff.  Unfortunately, we have spent many an hour in doctors' offices due to mom's health issues.  She suffered a stroke in 2000 which left her with such a difficult time communicating.  More often than not,  we have to wait way past our appointment time with other medical offices and then are rushed out of their offices.  CCA is so different!  They are always on time and provide the added personal care that is so much appreciated.  We love the CCA staff and highly recommend CCA to others!"  
T. L.                             6/2015


"I recently had to take my mom to CCA.  The staff was the most caring and professional that I have ever encountered.  My mom, who is 87, had suffered a pretty bad fall prior to the appointment.  It was a struggle to get her to CCA, and I had to bring her in her pajamas.  We didn't even do a very good job with the paperwork.  To say the least - we were both frazzled and overwhelmed.  From the moment we stepped into the office, we were greeted and treated by the most gracious people.  We both felt at ease immediately.  My mom, who has dementia, can be difficult, but everyone was so kind that she commented that she wanted the CCA people to be her Dr.'s.  This is a huge compliment from her.  By their kindness, and speedy professionalism - they made our day so much easier, and the situation not so crushing for us.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

I just want to say Thank You so very much for your care, kindness, patience, thoughtfulness and understanding with my mom.  You and your staff provided a trust and calm for my mom which had her looking forward to every appointment.

Thank you so much for letting me complete my externship with you guys.  I have learned so much in my time here and appreciate everything you have taught me.  Thank you for taking the time to show me the ins and outs of your practice.  You're all amazing and I'm glad I was able to get to know you all a bit."

Thank you,

"Re:  Barbara Wiggin -I have been cared for by Barbara for several years now.  I am 85 years old and Barbara takes care of my pessary -- I refer to her as 'Painless Barbara' as she never hurt me and I do not dread her gentle care.

Thank you for making her available to me."

Sincerely,     Marie                    9/03/14


"I have had what has been diagnosed as bowel incontinence.  It is something you would not wish on your worst enemy.  It took me two weeks to find the words to describe it to my primary care person.  She told me she could not help me with my situation, but she could get me to good people who could help.
On my first visit to CCA, I met Barbara Wiggin and her staff.  They were very patient and understanding.  I was told they could help and it would take 4-6 weeks.  I was ready.  They gave me exercises to do and suggested I eat fiber.  I did both with a passion.  I was depressed after two weeks to see no improvement.  I was tol.d to "think positively" and to continue my routine.  I did this.  By week 5, I was "cured."  I was back to normal.
I can't thank CCA enough.  They made me feel like a human being again."

Shirley                                       8/27/14


"Dear Joel, Denise, Karen, Krystal, Linda, and Barb:

'Special people like you make the world a brighter place'
Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedules to orient me to this specialty practice and enable me to complete my Wound/Ostomy/Continence education.  All of you are very special people and it was a pleasure getting to know you! 

Karen M., RN                               8/05/14


"We have been bringing my mother to the CCA for many years.  We have received nothing but the best care and concern for her well-being.  Barb and the staff are patient, caring, and comforting.  It would be hard to find such a wonderful staff elsewhere.

Thank you for all you do to help those in need!"

“Joel, Barbara, and Staff:

I followed your staff around last year.  CCA has the best staff that is friendly and knowledgeable.  I want to thank you for such a great experience at your clinic.  You all make such a difference in patients’ lives.  I am happy to announce that I have passed my continence certification.  Again thank you for letting me spend the day with you.

I will recommend your clinic to any patients having incontinence issues.”

"Joel Rosen and CCA staff:
My decision to come to CCA for a uterine procedure was the best and most necessary choice I've ever made - it changed my way of living.  The CCA staff is wonderful, kind and very understanding, explaining all as they proceed.  I was very apprehensive but that feeling soon turned into a most jubilant feeling!
I want to thank all of the staff - you are the best!

Sincerely,     A. M.                             11/05/13


"I have been coming to CCA since March of 2002. I had a urodynamics test and then office visits to solve bladder problems that had begun in 1999 and became more complicated after a hysterectomy and bladder suspension in 2001. For 8 months I was unable to work or do daily activities where a bathroom was not close by. But testing, electrical stimulation, pessaries and research by the CCA staff helped me manage bladder problems and return to work and an active outdoor life. The staff at CCA has always provided appointments that were punctual, friendly and informative. The topic is not one that is comfortable discussing, but the CCA staff has made it seem like it's a medical problem with solutions and not something that can't be solved or discussed confidentially with them. I am grateful to the staff at CCA for providing me with continued good service, suggestions and products for the last 11 years."

Thank you,     A. C.                             11/04/13


"Hi Joel and Barbara and all of the Staff,

Thank you all so much for your willingness to share and demonstrate your expertise in continence care during my clinical visit at the Peoria/Sun City Continence Center.  You helped add meaning and context to some of the continence evaluation and treatments with which I was less familiar.  And I might add, contributed to my successful certification exam results as an Advanced Practice Continence Care Nurse.  Continued success in your professional work."

 Debra B., ANP/GNP-BC, CWCN, COCCN-AP       10/24/13


"It's rare to find sincere kindness, compassion and efficiency in any company, these days.  But the Sun City Continence Center seems to choose nothing less.

I want to say 'thank-you' to Barbara and her staff for all the times I've experienced their warmth and concern for my comfort and peace of mind."

Patti R.                                                 9/04/2013


"A special thank you to... 'Barbara the amazing!'  I so appreciate you and your so sweet and capable assistants!  Can't do without you!  Warm regards,"

"My experience at CCA over the past two years has been altogether positive.  Your staff is polite and considerate, and your primary practitioner has much expertise.  I can, and have, recommended your center to friends and
acquaintances without hesitation."
