It is our mission to provide an environment that fosters comprehensive rehabilitation based on current literature and scientific support. Each rehabilitation program is tailored to meet the individual needs of every patient. We provide prompt access, and we stress the educational and communication components of treatment to expedite patient progress.
As a compliment to our highest professional standards, we are committed to providing our patients with a warm, friendly and non-institutional environment. It is our philosophy that this atmosphere fosters healing and promotes the health and wellness of the mind, body, and spirit through warm smiles, friendly greetings, and genuine compassion and concern.
The MMPTC Difference
The professional staff at MMPTC have years of clinical experience. In addition to our clinical expertise, our staff are involved in education and research. They have served for decades as faculty members within the University of Scranton’s Physical Therapy Department and in Keystone College’s Physical Therapist Assistant Department. The staff have also participated in, and have published, scientific and clinical research, and many have been involved in medial-legal case reviews in the area of physical therapy.
For improved patient outcomes, MMPTC emphasizes evidence-based health care, which is supported in literature. Patients benefit from evidence-based treatment plans in many ways, and based upon the diagnosis, a well-developed plan can limit the number of visits required to attain rehabilitation goals. In addition, our post-injury and post-operative treatment plans are derived from the most respected teaching, research, and hospital protocols in the country.
Communication is the hallmark of our Practice. Continual monitoring and follow-up is made by fax, e-mail, mail or phone with appropriate members of the rehabilitation team including the patient, physician, family physician, rehabilitation nurse, and other appropriate parties. Written communication is made following the initial evaluation, at 3-4 week progress reports, and upon discharge. In some cases, it is necessary to communicate daily or weekly.
We encourage ongoing communication and welcome your input and comments.
