Dana and Kevin make sure that patients get the care they need. Lisa makes sure to pre-verify therapy insurance benefits before starting care. We also closely track each visit. Treatments focus on developing independent exercise activities beginning the first day of treatment. We continue to be focused on helping each patient reach their physical therapy goals.
Each and every Friday, the day is devoted to a Hawaiian flavor. Snacks and shaved ice not to mention the Hawaiian music to exercise to. All this is wrapped around a friendly environment where you are left with good feelings after your visit with us.
