Total Care

With 16 years of experience, I know that patients’ needs are unique, so is their plan of care.

We'll work with you, your family, and your physician to develop an individualized program of rehabilitation that is effective for you. We place a strong emphasis on patient and family education. We know the more informed and involved you are, the quicker and less traumatic your healing process will be. We will even help you transition to home by providing specialized training to your family on equipment or supplies that you might need. If your need is a healthier lifestyle, our Wellness Center will design a fitness plan just for you. We are proud of the Rehabilitation and Wellness services we provide for community residents. Let us be your choice for quality care. Lacretia Cooke Edwards MS, PT
