I love this place. I was referred by my surgeon after hand surgery. I glad he did. The staff is amazing. Always welcoming, knowledgeable, patient and encouraging. They became like apart of the family. I would definitely refer this location to EVERYONE!
I completely recommend the Laveen location for therapy! I’ve been receiving OT services with Casey since the beginning of November 2022, and I’ve seen great improvement! All staff members are super kind and welcoming! They take the time to get to know the clients, and you can tell all clients have a great time when we are there, even when we are working hard to achieve our goal to make progress! I truly look forward to my sessions!
Great experience at Desert Hand from the time at check-in with Kim, Sabrina was always helpful she anticipated everything I needed. Will and Everett were awesome, they listened to my concerns, developed a plan of action for a home exercise routine and feel they truly care about the needs of their patients. Thank you for your excellent service!
