Mitzi is a musician, specializing in treatment of musicians!
“Two years ago, at the age of 74, I sadly quit playing Beethoven on the piano. My fingers were tripping over each other in scale passages as I played quartets. As I played quartets with a violinist, violist, and cellist, I was mortified and discouraged.
My PCP sent me to Dr Rog, orthopedic surgeon, for a consult and he referred me to Mitzi. Mitzi was able to recognize the root causes of the issues with my fingers. Through strengthening exercises, multiple therapy sessions, and great patience, Mitzi has produced miracles. I am once again playing Beethoven!"
