The length of each treatment session is based on a patient’s needs and therapeutic goals and the amount of follow-up is based upon the degree of recovery and compliance with the rehabilitation regimen. Some conditions are better treated in a group setting to reinforce the need for compliance and promote independence. Medical direction for Therapy services are provided by Physiatrists Dr. Nicole Golding and Dr. Daniel Lee.
Each member of the rehabilitation team is licensed by the California State Medical Board. Staff clinicians possess advanced clinical skills and certifications. These include neurological rehab (Stroke, head injury, spinal cord, and peripheral nerve injuries), orthopedics and post-surgical rehabilitation, pediatrics and developmental follow up, manual therapy, hand therapy, vestibular disorders, and geriatric specialty services. The departmental philosophy of providing advanced evidence based care means that staff therapists are required to attend professional conferences and continuing education coursework as a condition of their employment.
Our clinical staff takes pride in providing patient-centered care, which specifically addresses the functional needs and goals of each patient based upon application of scientific clinical techniques that are delivered with compassion and caring. Some conditions respond to therapeutic intervention better than others, but each and every patient is treated with respect and provided the opportunity to learn how to compensate and overcome their respective disabilities.
