“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.”
