Care Philosophy

“I aim to inform patients of “the why” behind therapy techniques in easy to understand terms therefore getting them to “buy in” to and be more successful in the rehab process.
I feel that we have a great collaborative team that not only refers to each other when patient needs require it, but we also teach and learn from each other to make the whole team better.”
