Here's what our patients have to say:

I have been going to therapy at this location and they have brought back a new life in me. Joanna and Ray are just so nice and helpful. They have worked with me and my legs are getting back to where they used to be. Telling I am so thankful to them for this.

I can't express how grateful I am to Ray Cooper for helping me! I am fighting breast cancer and I had complications from a double mastectomy. I got immediate relief from a very painful issue and I'm still a patient. I would recommend Chesapeake Lymphedema Center, especially to women experiencing cording or orthopedic issues after their surgeries. Thanks!

Been going here for a couple of years now. Ray Cooper & his staff are awesome. If you or anyone else you know has Lymphedema I highly suggest checking them out. I give them 10 stars if fb allowed me to. Keep up the great work you do Ray!!!
