I can’t thank Hand and Occupational Therapy Center enough for helping me with both hands and now my shoulders. After having multiple hand surgeries I found Hand and Occupational Therapy to be very skilled, knowledgeable, and creative with helping me gain strength and use of my hands. I have found Keith , Amber, Shirley, Amy and Bobby to be friendly, genuine, and  passionate for what they do. Each therapist is professional, kind, respectful, friendly and very knowledgeable. They’re very concerned about each patient and always encouraging you to perform at your highest  level. I’m so thankful that I chose to come here and recommend them to anyone needing therapy. Thank you Hand and Occupational Therapy for helping me live my best life.

I am so very grateful for William “Keith” Brannen at Hand and Occupational Center. He is so gifted and skilled! He cares so much for his patients. Keith has basically worked a miracle on my right hand (which I injured lifting a heavy object the wrong way) and now I do not need surgery! He is amazing! When my Ortho scheduled surgery I asked him to refer me to PT and then canceled my surgical appt. The Hand center was on the list with all the other Physical Therapy centers and I am so glad I chose Keith! I own a Yoga Studio and teach Yoga for a living. I live a very active lifestyle of health, wellness and family. My hands are essential for that and so many other reasons. Thank you Keith for getting me back to living my best life!

I was involved in a bad motorcycle accident resulting in multiple hand surgeries. Keith and the staff at Hand & Occupational Therapy Center are the absolute best at what they do ! I went through almost 2 years of therapy and found them to be very knowledgeable and thorough in what they do. They are genuinely concerned about their patients and I would not have come as far as I have without their wonderful care. I would highly recommend them to anyone requiring therapy.

Through my experience at Hand and Occupational Therapy Center I have found Keith Brannen and the entire team to be a welcoming and tight knit family. They have a genuine passion for what they do. From the time you walk in their door you will be treated by people who are incredibly professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. You will be both challenged and encouraged in your therapy sessions because their desire is to help you reach your highest point of recovery possible. They will take the time to answer your questions and explain the purposes in the exercises. You will not find a more caring and professional group.

After fracturing my right humerus, I was found to have nerve injury to the arm and hand. I had.PT elsewhere which did help to improve my shoulder and arm movement. After about two months and having no improvement in wrist or hand movement or control I was referred to Hand and Occupational Therapy. And that was the best thing that could’ve happened. I worked mostly with Amber and Keith, although I saw Amy and Shirley as well on occasion. It took about nine months to start feel like I was really making some progress. But with their encouragement and continued care, I knew that I would achieve what I was after and that was being independent again. I continued with therapy for almost 17 months before I could return to work. Even though I work part-time, what I do is part of my identity and I love it. So my goal all along was to be able to return to that. And they helped me achieve that goal Bobbi was excellent as well. She always worked with me as far as scheduling and with insurance issues. And just such a friendly face, always

I came in with paralysis of my right wrist and hand! Now, I can do most anything! Thanks to such a wonderful team.

From the very first time I walked into the clinic, Keith and the rest of the staff at Hand & Occupational Therapy Center were so friendly, professional and knowledgeable. I broke three fingers and a knuckle while playing collegiate softball, and I was told by the team doctor that I may not ever be able to make a fist again. Once I started working with the staff, they improved my movement tremendously. They worked with me one on one to make sure I was back on the softball field as quickly as possible. Each therapist encouraged me to perform my best every appointment so I could quickly get back to living my best life and doing everything I wished to do. Thank you Hand & Occupational Therapy Center!

Therapy at HOTC has been a game changing experience for me during a time when I thought I would not gain function of my hand ever again. I suffered severe burns over my right dominant arm/hand . They gave me hope and the tools needed  to regain independence in order to perform essential day to day activities safely.  They supported and customized exercises that have significantly improved my strength and functionality. This is truly a family environment full of  very supportive, patient and understanding therapists who allow you to heal at your pace but also push you to your fullest potential.

The staff at Hand and Occupational Therapy Center have been outstanding. They helped me to regain normal use of my shoulder, elbow, and wrist after a severe accident. I now have normal use of each joint and I am pain free. Every staff member is very professional yet friendly, demanding yet compassionate!
