Our essential services
The breast cancer journey doesn’t end when patients complete their course of medical treatment. TurningPoint’s highly specialized and compassionate staff provide survivors with the support they need to reach their ideal quality of life both during and after treatment.
Care is provided in-person and virtually to serve patients across Georgia.
Why rehabilitation and exercise matter
Even after recovery, breast cancer can have debilitating effects on survivors’ endurance, physical function and quality of life. Studies show that physical therapy, exercise and specialized rehabilitation services can help breast cancer survivors regain strength and mobility, treat psychological issues, reduce pain, and improve overall health and well-being.
While the benefits of rehabilitation and exercise programs for breast cancer patients are well-documented, several obstacles make it challenging to administer necessary care. These barriers include a lack of accessible care, minimal awareness of survivorship needs, and insufficient evidence-based clinical practice guidelines to identify and manage the effects of breast cancer and its treatments.
One of TurningPoint’s major objectives is to make referrals to rehabilitation the standard in breast cancer treatments. We’re working toward that goal through industry partnerships, improved community and patient education, increased survivorship issues awareness, continual provider education, and an increased number of breast cancer rehabilitation professionals.
Listen, learn – and then help
At TurningPoint, we believe all breast cancer patients should have access to rehabilitative care that’s free from various barriers, including geographic, financial, racial and cultural obstacles. Our full-service approach includes specialized, evidence-based rehabilitation that’s equally accessible, comprehensive and rooted in compassion. We offer both in-person and virtual appointments. We also offer financial assistance to patients unable to afford care.
Referrals can be faxed directly to 770-360-9276. If you would like to request TurningPoint referral pads, please call 770-360-9271 and the front office will coordinate sending a Referring Provider Packet to your office.
