“At Performance Rehab you will think you are in a very different world – medically- at least I did from my first visit with Dr. Piccillo and Dr. Carmine Defao. It was obvious my history had been read in detail and given much thought. The staff, from the front desk (with big smiles) to all the other highly qualified staff and doctors have been fun to work with, all part of the healing process. As an older person, it’s sometimes easy to feel “is there a better reality?” It’s a journey and everyone puts out a hand to help you on your way . In fact , lots of hands to keep you safe and be sure you’re doing each move properly. And whoever is working with you takes copious notes, and I do mean copious, on your progress and you are periodically reevaluated and your program adjusted accordingly. A recent article in Consumer Reports on chronic pain noted that one of the biggest problems is that many professionals don’t take the time to listen to the patient. They do here, very carefully. I have seen Dr. Tabija twice, and will again for program adjustment. I am impressed and grateful to all at Performance Rehab. I also know that all their hard work on my behalf will be for naught if I don’t do my share.”

The doctor was thorough and explained in detail about the therapy I would receive. He assured me there was no worries about fees and scheduling was completed for the duration of my treatment. He even covered any other treatment that might enhance my recovery.
