Hand Therapy, Physical & Occupational Therapy

Practices In: Tinley Park
Patients Seen: All Ages

I believe in a team approach between the patient, physi­cian and ther­a­pist to cre­ate and indi­vid­u­al­ized treat­ment plan that helps the patient to achieve their most mean­ing­ful goals. I encour­age the patient to take con­trol of their recov­ery in order to return to what is impor­tant to them.
