I think the thing that sets this place apart from all others is the depth and breadth of knowledge these folks have on the rehabilitation process and the body. The thoroughness they give me in terms of really developing a plan to get me back to normal is unbelievable. If you have any type of dizziness issues...I would definitely consider Dr. Erin Markel as someone who just may very well could help you.
If you suffer from dizziness and bouts of vertigo, go see Dr. Erin Markel. She really helped me! She is the best!
Where do I start? PRA was able to help me through my first (and very serious injury). I had seen several PTs and other providers before coming to PRA - none of which provided the level of attention, detail, and care that Erin and her entire team did. From the PTAs, to the front desk staff - everyone I worked with was dedicated to my recovery and always made sure I understood the decisions we were making. Any questions or concerns I had were explained with a ton of detail. I can’t say enough great things about this team and their dedication to getting people back to their activity even stronger than before- plus they are wonderful to spend time with!
