(CNN) -- At her research lab at the University of Louisville, neuroscientist Susan Harkema turned her back to her study subject to check a reading on a computer screen. "Hey Susie, look at this," the patient called out to her. "I can move my toe!" Startled, Harkema spun around. The purpose of her study, which involves sending electrical stimulation to broken spinal cords, was to learn more about nerve pathways, not to actually make patients move.

The Maywood Health Center in Maywood, New Jersey should be your first choice for rehabilitative care. As a doctor, retired veteran and dental professor, I am well aware of the complexities associated with today's healthcare system. Working as a healthcare provider, I know that quality healthcare can only occur when there is a team effort between the doctors, nurses, staff and patient. Many years ago, I was diagnosed with severe rheumatoid arthritis affecting every joint in my body. In the last two years, this doctor, who normally treats patients, actually became the patient. I had to undergo three, yes three, major surgeries: two back surgeries with metal implants and a total knee replacement. As a patient, preparing for surgery, I searched for highly skilled surgeons who could provide me with a positive outcome. However, I soon realized that in order to obtain a positive outcome, the quality of my rehabilitative care must be factored into the equation. In these hard economic times, it is unfortunate that most patients attempt to defray the cost of healthcare by placing the burden for rehabilitation on family members. That decision could prove to be very problematic. When considering your rehabilitative care, the first question you should ask is whether or not the family member has the expertise to take care of you 24 hours a day for "X" number of days? As for me, my three and one-half week stay at the Maywood Health Center proved to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. The doctors, nurses and staff at Maywood treated me with respect and provided me with the medical, physical, and occupational care that I needed. The Maywood Center took care of me so that I could return to work and continue to take care of my patients. Thank you Maywood Center for Health & Rehabilitation for a job well done!
