Why should I turn to a physiatrist?

Many people mix up physiatrists with physical therapists, but they are entirely different. A physiatrist is a medical doctor who has gone through extensive schooling and training to be able to diagnose and treat health problems, including prescribing medications as part of your treatment protocol (something that physical therapists cannot do). We also provide a more diverse array of treatment options and we tailor our exercise programs and offerings to meet every patient’s unique needs.
