Outpatient Telehealth Physiatry:

We believe in removing any barriers to access quality healthcare. In situations with Post-Stroke or MS patients, there is often a need for continued care, treatment options and direction from an expert in physiatry. Radial Health employs physiatrists experienced in treating diverse problems in the realms of pain management, sports medicine, and various complex neurologic disorders. We understand the needs of patients and healthcare systems, thus can offer telemedicine visits using an easy-to-use platform for patients to communicate their needs effectively.
