Practices In: Glen Ellyn
Patients Seen: Adults

The jour­ney for a patient in phys­i­cal ther­a­py starts with com­mu­ni­ca­tion, under­stand­ing and set­ting goals towards your recov­ery. It is my pri­or­i­ty to get to know my patients’ con­di­tions and what their indi­vid­ual expec­ta­tions are. I do this not only to for­mu­late a plan that address­es indi­vid­ual needs but I take the oppor­tu­ni­ty to pro­vide my patients with edu­ca­tion to impact on their life well beyond their time spent in phys­i­cal therapy.
