Your first visit.
Depending on your physician’s order, you may begin therapeutic rehabilitation right away. For other patients, the introductory appointment may involve a consultation with our neurologist to discuss symptoms and any pre-existing conditions that might affect your treatment. This may include a physical examination, lab work, or additional testing.

Once we’ve completed our evaluation, we will help you gain a better understanding of your diagnosis and treatment options.

Take control of your health.
Our program will work directly with your referring physician to develop a treatment plan and keep them updated on your progress. For more information, please call 909/596-7733, ext. 3500 (Pomona campus) or 626/334-8735 (Azusa Center). We accept most insurance providers, including Medicare.
