Testimonials

"The NeuroRehab and Balance center is a great place to have therapy. When you walk in, everyone has a smile on their face. Nobody lets you feel alone. You can go talk to anyone and everyone is nice to talk to. That is one reason why I love going; to meet new friends. Every time I go, I can always see someone new with a smile on their face. This place has really helped my social skills too. Now I'm not so scared to talk to a new person.

When I had speech therapy, she had helped me with my reading, spelling and comprehension. I think that helped me in my life because now I can read important things like the newspaper and forms at the doctor's office and understand them. When I had occupational therapy, they helped me in the kitchen with cooking, cleaning and also getting into the bathroom. Physical therapy helped me with my strength, balance, walking, trust and safety. Overall, the NeuroRehab and Balance Center has helped me in many ways but most of all, they have helped me be ME again and meet new people. You can just be yourself when you walk in."
