Do we have anything from Amaresh that can personalize him a bit? Everything he listed is about what he does, not how he does it or who he is.
He is pretty serious person. A father of two daughters. He has his masters degree in health administration. I think we can leave it as it is.
“It has been such a pleasure as a Case Manager to work with PiOT and their dedicated therapists – special mention to Occupational Therapists Daniella Caskie and Lisa Martin! The PiOT team are diligent, conscientious, skilled, proactive and have been delightful to work with. Arvinder has clearly fostered a team of Occupational Therapists committed to positively impacting the lives of clients and families with ABI and complex injuries!”
“It has been our pleasure to work with the professional team and staff at PiOT in assisting our injured clients and their families after a serious accident. We have always found the team at PiOT to be responsive, compassionate and dedicated, and the feedback from our clients has been consistently positive. I highly recommend the Occupational Therapy team at PiOT.”
“Lina creates a space where you meet others who share your experience with concussions so you can learn, grow and be inspired together. She encourages you to share and support each other through an interactive process full of info and insights. You’ll have fun and feel connected to a community of survivors.”
“This program allowed me to share my experiences with others and get my thoughts back on track again! I have been able to catch myself when thinking negative thoughts early, so I don’t spiral down and get sad.”
“These sessions were my first opportunity to connect with other folks who have had similar injuries. The opportunity to hear both positive and challenging experiences from week to week really helps to show that you are not alone in your experience and is different than reading or listening to people telling their stories.”
