What Our Patients Say
I was recently a patient there (at Rehabilitation Services) after having surgery of a fractured hand. My hand therapist was Anne D. I am writing to let you know what a terrific therapist she is! Anne explained everything she was doing, she took my measurements before we started and progressively during my course of therapy, and showed me that she really cared about the outcome of getting my hand back to normal as quickly and perfectly as possible. She did just that. Between having the perfect surgeon (Dr. Yule) and the perfect therapist (Anne D.), my hand is completely restored. I have complete function of my right hand, no lumps or bumps and hardly a scar. I finished my therapy at the end of December. I am very grateful for the excellent job that Anne did.
