“IPMR is focused on patient centered care. The new office provides easier access and a more convenient location for patients”, said Rick Zehr, President of IPMR. Additional services will be available at the new location including office hours with Dr. Lisa Snyder, a physiatrist and the medical director of IPMR. Physiatrists, or rehabilitation physicians, are nerve, muscle, and bone experts who treat injuries or illnesses that affect movement.

STAR, survivorship training and rehab, relieves the physical and mental difficulties associated with cancer and cancer treatment. The STAR plan is based on individual goals that focus on increasing strength and energy, managing pain and improving function. Rob Cline is a physical therapist and the Washington site coordinator. “No one plans on injury, illness or the negative effects of aging. We want to soften the blows and restore your abilities and confidence. IPMR is concerned about outcomes; we track them and constantly improve quality so you get the best possible results.” said Rob Cline.
