Our providers consistently want to improve our therapeutic skills regardless of our education, training, expertise, or length of time in the field. We believe that all humans, including therapists, are fallible and make mistakes. We encourage patient feedback directly to our staff. Additionally, we would like your input on the services you have received. Would you please fill out the anonymous survey to help us improve?
