I entered physical therapy very debilitated due to vestibular migraines which led to dehydration and hospitalization. I was amazed at my rapid improvement when I began to work with Dr. Beata Thomas. I wish I could give Dr. Thomas a 10 Star Google Rating for her knowledge, communication skills, patience, compassion, sense of humor, and deep concern about my well being. I would adopt this charming and competent lady, if I could.
My husband was required to seek vestibular rehabilitation for vertigo and he worked with Dr. Beata Thomas at the Princeton location. Dr. Thomas was wonderful to work with, extremely knowledgeable and focused on his particular problem. Dr. Thomas also gave him exercises to do at home which helped strengthen his vestibular system and optical responses. He was much improved in just a few sessions. We would highly recommend Dr. Thomas for anyone with vertigo and vestibular system deficiencies.
