We have carefully selected local and international partners that are able to support this, including the Shirley Ryan Ability Lab – formerly known as the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago – and Bayt Al Qudra™ house of ability. Similarly, with National Reference Laboratory managing our laboratory, our skilled physicians are assured of accurate testing results so that they can create best-in-class treatment plans for better outcomes.”
