Great Feedback from Great Families

My son Jayden is 11 and has been coming to BDI for the past 4 years. BDI has become family in the way they treat my son. I truly feel deep in my heart if it wasn’t for his PT my son wouldn’t be walking the way he is today. BDI hires only the BEST. Every child here is treated with respect and love and each parent is respected and appreciated for their role in their child’s treatment plan."

    review rating 5  My experience with BDI in both the Aurora and Orland location has been incredible. I am a Chicago area Orthotist specializing in pediatrics. I work with many out patient facilities and BDI is always my top recommendation to families looking for services. The therapists are hand chosen for their specific skills, and they are continuously building on their knowledge and equipment. BDI offers children and their families so much, it is truly the full package. Things like aqua therapy, serial casting, and gait clinic are not available at most pediatric facilities. I am speaking not only as a medical professional who works with the therapists and office staff at BDI, but also as a mother who has had their child treated there. From insurance authorization help to complete satisfaction on therapeutic treatment of my child. Thank you BDI for all that you do!
