Our Unique Approach

We have four board-certified pediatric physiatrists on staff. Some physicians have an additional certification in brain injury medicine. Their expertise and training help children, adolescents and teens with injuries and disorders reach optimal outcomes. We take a family-centered, team approach to care for acute and chronic conditions. We actively include the family in the treatment process because we believe that patients recover more fully with parental involvement.
