MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. (September 6, 2015) – Middletown Medical, the Hudson Valley’s premier provider of healthcare services, has expanded both its physical therapy team and its hours of availability.
Physical therapy services at Middletown Medical’s Physical Therapy Center (located at 1219 Dolsontown Road) in Middletown are now available Monday through Friday; from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. The expanded availability is due, in part, to the addition of Elya M. Spolar, DPT, who joins the Middletown Medical team from Susquehanna Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
“The expansion of our physical therapy services is part of our long-held commitment to the communities we serve,” said Melissa Wolff, the medical group’s Marketing Director and Physician Recruiter. “Our goal is to provide the best care possible in the most convenient manner possible.”
While with Susquehanna Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Spolar focused on screening, evaluation, treatment, reporting, and planning for patients living with the effects of a number of orthopedic/neurologic disorders, including Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, congestive heart failure, total knee and hip replacements, cerebral vascular accidents, and headache. Spolar has conducted specialized LSVT BIG® exercise programs for patients with Parkinson’s disease and other neurological disorders. Her experience also includes work with pediatric patients and with amputees.
Spolar, who earned her Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, and her Doctorate from Widener University, has conducted research at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and Quest Therapy Services of West Chester, Pa.
“Elya brings with her so much invaluable experience to Middletown Medical, and we’re pleased that our patients, both existing and new, will benefit from her dedication to good health,” Wolff said.
Middletown Medical is always accepting new patients, and accepts most insurance plans. To schedule an appointment for physical therapy, call 845-344-1899.
