I had broken my wrist last year and had to have surgery. Everyone knows that with surgery you must have therapy. I choose South Shore Hand Therapy because of the hours and location. But what I got was an excellent receptionist named Barbara who greets everyone by name and is always upbeat and... amicable. Passing her you meet Nancy who is the nuts and bolts of this operation. She was my therapist and miracle worker. She is very patience and experienced. And then there is Charlotte who was encouraging and motivating. They told me it would take determination and hard work to get my wrist back to normal. They told me a year and they were correct. I can proudly say I am back to doing my handstands and pushups with no problems at all! I thank all of you at So. Shore for making me whole again!! I would highly recommend this therapy office to anyone who is looking to get back to normal use.read more
