When I needed a course of physical therapy for a shoulder injury a few months ago, I asked our doctor to send the referral to Hebrew Rehabilitation Center - NewBridge. I am writing now to offer my thanks for a terrific experience. Having spent almost 45 years practicing and teaching Internal Medicine and Geriatrics, I may be among the most demanding judges of such services, and I could not have been happier with the program.
