"I was hit by a truck while riding my bicycle. Thankfully, I survived, but I needed physical, speech, and occupational therapies, in order for me to return to my daily responsibilities and work. I had the privilege to work with the therapists at Pi Beta Phi Rehab, and I was very impressed with their professionalism and friendliness. Their hard work played a major role in my recovery. I am all better now. Thank you, Pi Beta Phi Rehab.” – Yik Yang
