  • Patient Complaints

      Just the other day I treated a person with a diagnosis list as long as your arm. It's a shame to see someone with so many problems, especially someone as young as this person was. Getting up in years myself I know what it's like to always have the doctor find things you didn't know you had and that don't bother you, that is until they ...

  • I Am A COTA

      This is a topic I've covered before, but I've always wanted to show the emblem I was given after passing my national exam. It was actually enclosed in the envelope with my passing test results. My certification exam was completed under AOTCB (American Occupational Therapy Certification Board) which used to be a part of AOTA (American ...
