Our center incorporates amenities that maximize patient care and convenience. The office features the use of an electronic medical record (EMR) system, digital imaging, a Patient Portal, and an on-site, comprehensive hand therapy and rehabilitation center.

Our services include extensive consultations, digital imaging, diagnoses determination, treatment plan and alternative-options discussions, and therapeutic treatment.

In addition to contemporary amenities, the center has knowledgeable staff on-site to assist in optimizing medical care. Our dedicated Occupational Therapists have received special training and certification in Hand Therapy (Occupational Therapy).
