We plan to stay open because we are committed to serving our community’s physical therapy needs! However, safety is still our number one priority and we want to ensure we are doing all we can to minimize our patients’ and our staff’s risk. If we have any employees not feeling well, they will not be coming into work. We appreciate your understanding through this process.
Stay safe and healthy!
