For ultra-racer Dave Kuhnau, Dr. Krabak has been more than just a physiatrist. He’s seen Dave through races up to 300 miles, from the Gobi Desert to Antarctica. “I view him as…a partner to what I’m trying to achieve,” Dave says.
Dr. Joseph Alleva sees physiatry as part of a bigger picture. “It’s more than a medical practice,” he says. “We focus more on the whole patient … their abilities to get back to doing the things that they love in life.”
