Leslie Goodson, OTR/L, CHT, is a certified hand therapist who has more than 29 years of experience. Leslie specializes in the treatment of the hand and upper extremities. When asked what a patient can expect from her as a provider, she responded by saying, "I feel like my role is to coach, educate, and train my patients back to doing what they want and need to do with their hands. Sometimes that is getting them back to the way they were before. Sometimes it is about doing things differently to still get the job done without causing pain and frustration. Giving someone back function is the most rewarding job."
