The rehabilitation officers that were assigned to me were very supportive, understanding and compassionate. Kirsten and Jasmin were able to negotiate with my workplace Managers/GP, Insurer & Health Professionals all throughout my time of injury. They supported me and ensured that realistic goals were set for me to achieve pre-injury status. They regularly would touch base with me on my progress to get back to work and into my regular routine again. I would recommend the services of the Rehabilitation Specialists they were great.
- Injured worker
My experience with ‘The Rehab Specialists’ was reassuring from the start. My consultant (Elise) was quick to explore aspects of my situation which she could assist with. All the staff are exceptionally lovely and caring. I felt looked after and supported from the start. I have now returned to full time work and have completed a wonderful program at ‘Fit to Manage’ – which was arranged by the consultants at ‘The Rehab Specialists’. Fiona, Elise and the crew have helped put me back on my feet, and I’ve hit the ground running. I can’t thank you all enough for the support and assistance you’ve given me over the past 6 months. Thanks for having my back!
- Case manager
We have found The Rehabilitation Specialists to be very responsive to our requests. The consultants have provided tailored and comprehensive support to our injured workers. The return to work coaching has proven to be very beneficial in supporting injured workers and in meeting the rehabilitation goals. We would highly recommend the Rehab Specialists to other agencies.
