Hear From Happy Parents
As an occupational therapist and devoted mom, I was quite concerned about my 9 month old's head size and shape. The caring, efficient, and professional staff at the Cranial Therapy Centers assisted us through the 4 month process with quick, convenient appointments and individual attention. Thank you Mitch for your warmth and patience! Now a year later we are so grateful to the Cranial Therapy Center for providing intervention that created significant, long-lasting results!
Our son Yisroel was born with torticolis , which caused him to have an extremely misshapen head . Our pediatrician referred us to Cranial Therapy Centers and from our first visit, they were there for us every step of the way . At our initial consultation , Mitch confirmed that our baby needed a helmet , but agreed to wait while we attempted to fix it with traditional PT first . When that did not totally resolve the issue, Mitch was ready and waiting for us. At each visit , he was so gentle with the baby and so patient about answering all our questions . When Yisroel finally got his helmet off after a few months, the entire staff was so happy for us ! We would - and we DO! - recommend Cranial Therapy Centers to anyone whose pediatrician suggests helmet therapy.
We are so thankful to the Cranial Therapy Center for their help to our son who was having issues with a misshapen head. The experience of working with them was a pleasure from beginning to end. From their experienced staff to the welcoming receptionist. We will always be thankful to them for changing our son's life.
