Yasemin Ozcan, MD, specializes in physical medicine and rehabilitation, providing comprehensive care that is designed to improve mobility, function and quality of life. Dr. Ozcan helps patients suffering from disabling and/or painful injuries or illnesses using nonoperative orthopedic treatments, including injections, home exercise plans, lifestyle modifications, physical/occupational therapy and more.

For patients with nerve or muscle problems, Dr. Ozcan offers compassionate electrodiagnostic testing — nerve conclusion studies and electromyography to evaluate the peripheral nerves and muscles that may be causing weakness or numbness. This allows her to identify and treat these conditions, including carpal tunnel syndrome, neuropathy and pinched nerve problems. Dr. Ozcan likes to take a collaborative approach with her patients so that they can work together towards a diagnosis and treatment plan that fits each individual.

Dr. Ozcan’s practice also focuses on lymphedema treatment and management. Additionally, she cares for osteoporosis patients, offering management, medication and non-medication treatment, and prevention for bone disease.

Her other interests center on helping patients overcome a wide range of conditions, including issues associated with gait/balance, speech and swallowing, rheumatology and COVID19. Dr. Ozcan also treats women with menopause, postpartum reconditioning, bone health and other postpartum issues, such as diastasis recti, pelvic floor dysfunction and post/peripartum nerve impingement.

About Our Star Ratings and Comments:

Randomly selected patients are sent patient satisfaction surveys after their visits. We get thousands of survey responses each year. The responses are used to improve patient experience and recognize staff members for the care they provide. Patient survey responses are also used to make star ratings for each provider.

For the star ratings and comments, all feedback on the provider web page is posted as it was given from patients. Comments that do not apply, risk patient privacy, or are not appropriate are not posted. Star ratings and comments come from a number of survey questions. A star rating is not given if a provider only has a small number of survey responses.
