Dr. Tariq is a compassionate therapist who strives to build relationships with her patients and support their progress towards personalized rehabilitation goals. “I firmly believe we cannot help our patients achieve their heath and wellness goals without getting to know who they are as people”, she states.

Constructing simple but creative exercise plans to challenge her patients to achieve their short term and long term goals is paramount.
