Rehabilitation


Commitment to Patient-Centered Care

"Every patient is a VIP: a very important person with a unique story to tell. Before deciding on a course of treatment, I listen carefully to each client's story to make sure I understand the nature of the ailment and how it affects daily life. My mission is to alleviate symptoms and show the patient how to avoid a recurrence. I assist the patient in developing an individualized home exercise program to restore balance, increase strength, and enhance movement. It is a privilege to work at Hennepin. Every day I have the opportunity to improve my patients' quality of life."
