Our Favorite Quotes:
- “Here half of the population, more than half of us, don’t even know that physical therapy should be a standard of care. And so that knowledge combined with my experience with having my daughter led me to this journey that I never ever expected it to be at.” – Dr. Pinkey Patel
- “Honestly, to impact more mothers, we needed to expand the team beyond myself, like there’s only so much you can do yourself.” – Dr. Pinkey Patel
- “I say that science is in the DNA of Myri, it will remain that way. Because of my background. There’s a lot of information out there that’s not validated in science.” – Dr. Pinkey Patel
