I’d like to join in on this discussion. I have a blood disorder & before I received my final diagnosis, I, unfortunately, received a splenectomy.

Sure thing! I didn’t understand your last sentence.
Thanks 🙏🏻

Sorry, I believe you have mentioned Encompass Health to other people in other conversations/topics & your above reply was intended for one of those other people. My conversation has been about a Occupational therapy (hand specialists).
Thanks 🙏🏻

Hi, I have an orthopedic hand specialist doctor.
I was never talking about that doctor or his services.
I was only specifically talking about Occupational therapy, in the category of hand therapy. My dermatologist told me there are two categories (in Occupational Therapy): hand therapists & hand specialists (also therapists). I need an occupational therapist who is a hand specialist, not just a hand therapist. They are both therapists, not hand doctors (like my orthopedic hand specialist doctor).
Thanks🙏🏻

In the category of Occupational Therapy, there are hand therapists & hand specialists. I need a hand specialist who works for a company in my area that takes my primary & secondary insurance. I’ve contacted numerous companies (gotten referrals from other companies, etc), but haven’t had any success. Even many of my Doctors haven’t been able to help.
Thanks🙏🏻

I have not tried Encompass health. I called around to several local facilities that take my primary & secondary insurance. And, yes, in the category of Occupational Therapy there are hand therapists as well as hand specialists. That’s the catch, I need a hand specialist at a local facility that takes my primary & secondary insurance. Haven’t had any luck & my doctors can’t help either.
Thanks!🙏🏻

I tried it once. You should try it, I suppose, if you have the financial means. I could’ve gotten 1st 3 sessions free & then started paying for it, but I never returned. It is offered through the Integrative Health Department at our Local Cancer Care Facility.
