This course was extremely insightful and enlightening. Suzanne was so intelligent, thoughtful, and well-spoken. This is a great introductory course to NDT-based principles, handling, and critical thinking process. Highly recommend to all. -Samantha, PT
Suzanne Davis was amazing at explaining and emphasizing the impact of the "big picture" and all the small steps that are required to progress to that goal. I believe as treating therapists sometimes it is easy to forget about all the small things to achieve prior to our ultimate goal. -Hannah S., OTR
I would highly recommend this course for anyone interested in NDT! -Laura A., OTR
