Our Faculty

A physiatrist is a doctor who treats medical conditions that can cause pain or limit function.

Also called physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) physicians, physiatrists provide a full spectrum of care from diagnosis to treatment and rehabilitation to restore maximum health and quality of life. Today physiatry is one of the most comprehensive multifaceted, and fastest growing areas of medicine. Additionally we have a pediatric nurse practitioner and a physical therapist on our staff to help take care of our patients’ needs.
