Coral Bay is distinguished as one of the only facilities in Pensacola to have a Physiatrist and Physiatrist Nurse Practitioner on staff.

Some benefits of Physiatrist-led Rehab include:
  • More targeted, personalized care, leading
    to better treatment outcomes
  • A holistic approach to patient care,
    including pain management
  • The ability to diagnose and treat multiple
    orthopedic and neuromuscular conditions
  • A focus on the functional side of rehab by
    closely monitoring patient progress
  • Whole-picture, MD level oversight

Why Physiatry can make
all the difference:

Physiatrists are qualified physicians who specialize in rehab care and have undergone formal training in physical and rehabilitation medicine. The role of a therapist is to execute your rehab with attention and care, while a Physiatrist designs, coordinates and adjusts the entire care plan according to your individual needs.

Our experienced Physiatry Team provides a full spectrum of care – from diagnosis to treatment and rehabilitation – to restore maximum health and quality of life. By working collaboratively with our staff, patients and families, they are able to enhance functional outcomes, clinical quality measures, and the patient care experience – ultimately getting patients back to the lives they love.
