Our occupational therapists work alongside patients with the common goal of helping them achieve independence in all facets of their lives. We offer proven techniques with sensitive but straight-forward communication to teach the "skills for the job of living." Trained to understand human growth and development with emphasis on the social, emotional, and physiological effects of illness and injury, we work across specialties to provide evaluations, screenings and treatment.
