Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. McDonald "Dedicated to treating you like family

The hallmark of our care is the emphasis we put on the coaching of patients throughout recovery. Indeed, for healing to occur and to occur quickly, the mind, body, and spirit of both the patient and the therapist must be put to use. Ours is a "can-do" environment, and each day begins anew with the enthusiasm we bring to our patients and our jobs. This positive atmosphere aids in the recovery of our patients. Physical therapists teach people how to take care of themselves. "If you give a man a fish, he eats for a day. If you teach him how to fish, he eats for the rest of his life.""
