Last year, Dr. Berg of TOC operated on both of my hands for a pretty severe case of Dupuytren's Contracture.
Part of the recovery involved therapy at TOSPT. Dori Catalano was the therapist assigned to my case. Dori and her staff did a great job getting me started on the road to recovery.
The therapy involved several visits for each hand. They gave me detailed instructions for in-house and at home programs. Each visit involved measurements to track progress and answer any questions I might have.
I was impressed how everybody was so professional and efficient; from the front desk, billing department and of course, the therapists.
