My therapists, Millie and Kim, are the best people I have ever met! They were exceptional, and I owe my good health to both of them.
I have never had anyone in other institutions give me the caring, compassionate, professional, dedicated services that AW Healthcare has rendered me. I want you to know how much I appreciate it.
My therapist was awesome- knowledgeable and helpful.
