Christine Nestor, DVM, CCRT

I have been practicing medicine and surgery for the past sixteen years in Erie. I love animals, people, and new challenges. The beauty of this field is the variation of what one can do. I first encountered rehabilitation medicine while at a surgical conference three years ago and have found the techniques to be most useful. While we are always still learning and evolving, there are many ways we can help.
