“My therapist gives me individualized attention and is professional, caring and always on time. I am surprised at how fast my frozen shoulder improved. I now can use my arm much more and my pain is a lot better. Kudos to this wonderful and caring staff! I would highly recommend Miami Jewish Health’s Outpatient Rehabilitation Department. They do an outstanding job!”
“Everyone has struggles and limitations of some kind. But with time and effort amazing things can happen. Through physical therapy, I can now do something that I haven’t been able to do for over 40+ years. I can lift my right leg and put it on my left knee! Special thanks to Miami Jewish Rehab for their compassionate and empathetic way of dealing with every single person as an individual with specific needs. I am eternally grateful!”
“I am so grateful to my mother's nurse aid for recommending Miami Jewish Health for her physical therapy. My mother has completed her first week and I noticed a difference in her movements. Her body is not as rigid, and she is able to hold her upper body up more than she did before her therapy. She is actually taking a few steps. Thank you so much.”
