Newport Physiatry Services

Kelly Sullivan gained significant flexibility through Newport Physiatry.

Improved Mobility

Kelly Sullivan is a patient of Dr. Mustapha Kemal, who uses guided Botox injections to target specific muscle groups and relax spasticity. His care has helped her regain flexibility and range of motion. “When I found Dr. Kemal, he was unlike any other doctor I knew.”
