If a patient needs aftercare, Dr Rehman’s staff can provide this care, such as teaching scar massage or providing splints. Patients needing physical therapy can get this treatment at Dr. Rehman’s Macomb or Bloomfield office, or at a facility more convenient to the patient.
Dr. Rehman works with each patient’s primary care physician to keep them updated on their patient’s condition. Each referring physician receives a thank you letter that includes the diagnosis and treatment plan. If a patient returns to Dr Rehman for any aftercare, she sends the referring physician progress notes on his or her patient.
Dr Rehman’s specialized training and focus on hand disorders set her apart from other surgeons when it comes to any condition related to the hand, wrist, elbow or fingers. Additionally she said, “My staff and I treat patients how we or any of our family members would want to be treated.”
