Why Did the Chicken
Cross the Road?

To get to Kid's Creek, of course!

Kid's Creek Therapy will be closed for two weeks while we move into our new clinic space, located just across the street at  4055 Johns Creek Court, Suite A. Our office be closed from December 23 through January 3 and will reopen on Monday, January 7.  We can't wait for all of our families to see our brand new space (and the additional parking is a bonus!)

We chose this time of year when many of our families take a short break for the holidays to cause the least disruption in therapy schedules.  However, we will open on two Saturdays prior to the closure - December 7 and 14 - to offer makeup sessions to our families who need them. 

To schedule alternative sessions to make up for dates during the closure, please call the front desk at 770-888-5221  and we will make these accommodations for you. Call soon for Saturday sessions, as these appointments are limited.

Get to Know You: Sundas Mushtaq

In Get to Know You, we ask our staff a few questions to give our families a peek into who they are as people, not simply providers. This month's Get to Know You features
Occupational Therapist Sundas Mushtaq.

Who is your hero?  My mom is my hero. I know it's cliche but she is literally superwoman! Being an immigrant to this country, having a child with special needs, while raising two girls, building a career from scratch and then continuing to grow and be successful. She is my ideal. She is able to manage all of that while finding time to still care for her home and do things for fun.

What is your favorite thing about your career?
I love that what I do makes a huge impact on people's lives. I enjoy working with families and finding those "ah-ha!" moments.

What is your proudest accomplishment?
Graduating with my degree in OT.

What three items would you take with you on a deserted island? My phone, a portable home, and my holy book, Quran.

If you had to describe yourself as an animal, which one would it be? Umm... an elephant. People underestimate my strength and power.
