With the addition of Dr. Mikala Simon, MDHC is now able to offer physical therapy to their patients. Telemedicine allows flexible care for patients from anywhere and with that promoting successful completion of physical therapy treatment plans. Therapists can check patient progress, address issues, and assist with exercises and other treatments.
