Dear Teresa, Enclosed is your survey, however I wanted to add just a little note of thanks to all the Wonderful Nurses who took wonderful care of me while I was a patient at Whittier. All of the Physical Therapy staff and OT what a TEAM! I COULD NOT HAVE ASKED FOR MORE!!! So caring and right on top of what you need to move forward. I have to say even the kitchen and the staff that cleaned the rooms were all so nice always asking how I was, and doing their job. The Staff at the front desk that answered you were all so pleasant also, I was impressed by Whittier Rehab and how well dedicated the employees were. They take pride in what they do. My Case Manager Jennifer was right there for me when I needed her. Terry from Nutrition, Thanks for all your help! Special Thanks to Moses, who always seemed to be there! A wonderful CNA, Washington Nurse at night, oh my so many Awesome Nurses! I wish I could remember all the names. Last of all I must say I had the most wonderful Dr. Struck, the BEST Doctor I have ever had! So in tune with every need and problem that I had. Thank you Dr. Struck for being there for me. I wish you all the luck in your new journey on becoming a MOM. I would highly recommend Whittier as a top notch Rehab and the place to be for recovering! Once again THANK you!! —Marlene K.


Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital Westborough

Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital-Bradford

Heather Popp, DPT, NCS and Sandra Kiley, MSPT, NCS are Board Certified Neurology Clinical Specialists in Physical Therapy.

Heather Popp and Sandra Kiley, physical therapists for the outpatient Neurology Day Rehabilitation Program at Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital, recently passed the Neurology Physical Therapy Specialty Exam administered by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties (ABPTS).  As certified clinical specialists in neurology, Heather and Sandra treat adults and pediatrics with complex neurologic conditions and achieve superior outcomes through advanced clinical knowledge and skills. 

Heather and Sandra are the only physical therapists practicing in the Merrimack Valley who are Board Certified Neurology Clinical Specialists. They work as part of an interdisciplinary outpatient team whose members include a neurologist, nurse practitioner, occupational therapists and speech language pathologists. In addition to a variety of modalities and equipment, Heather and Sandra utilize a newly acquired anti-gravity treadmill to rehabilitate many of their patients who have difficulties walking. The antigravity treadmill allows patients to unweight up to eighty percent of their bodies in order to achieve a more normal walking pattern. 

What does this mean for your patients? Research has demonstrated that clinical neurologic specialists are able to treat complex neurologic conditions and rehabilitate patients more efficiently than clinicians without advanced certification.
