Testimonials 

Meg B – Brooklyn, NY

“I began working with Michele in May of 2014 after I had a rotational osteotomy of the humerus. I had severe nerve damage at birth and recently discovered options to gain more mobility. My doctor highly recommended Michele so I walked into Michele’s office very scared and nervous about beginning occupational therapy twice a week for the next three months. Michele made the entire process and transition very smooth for me and was hands on in the entire process, making me comfortable enough to ask any kind of question I had and also making the one hour of therapy very enjoyable with different exercises each week and a great sense of humor! I’m entering my last week of working with Michele and the improvements I have are drastic, all thanks to her! I am sad to be ending my journey with her and thankful for all that she has done for me!”
