2021-12-17 12:44:58 PM Ifeoma Obi : Hi Tammy we do not provide those services within our center. However, our providers  work with community providers to set up referrals

2021-12-17 12:45:14 PM Anneliese Massey : I perform the Physical Therapy Screen and if the individual needs services, the team will provide them with a referral.  We do not have OT or SLP on the team at the CSA; however, if we recognize needs for those services, we make the appropriate referrals as well.

2021-12-17 12:48:04 PM Karen M Schneebaum : An Occupational Therapist really should be part of your team as they are the experts in activities of daily living / self care . 

2021-12-17 12:50:44 PM Anneliese Massey : We agree that OT is extremely important.   One of the limitations is that the initial exam is already a long visit and can be very tiring to our patients.  I do recommend OT for patients as appropriate.

2021-12-17 12:54:17 PM Karen M Schneebaum : an OT evaluation would better determinne that

2021-12-17 12:55:33 PM Chuck Thornton : Thank you for a very informative program!
