Daniel Souza of San Clemente Orthopedic Rehabilitation, or SCOR Physical Therapy said recent developments in health care have seen some of the biggest changes of his career, which now spans 25 years in San Clemente.

“Health care has changed a lot, we’ve had to learn a ton the last few years,” Souza said. “I’ve certainly loved working in the area, but the last two or three years have been very difficult.”

Specifically, insurance companies have cut back on reimbursements as a result of the Affordable Care Act, he said.

Knowing the changes were coming, Souza recently completed a doctorate degree in physical therapy to further enhance his practice.

The rehabilitation gym has also been expanded and modified, and utilizes state-of-the-art equipment and provides a positive and healing environment for his patients.

Staff members are chosen based not only on their physical therapy expertise, but also on their caring nature and attentiveness, Souza said.

“The reason we’ve been so successful for 25 years is our culture, where customer service is primary. Also, since 1988 we have been providing sports medicine services to San Clemente High School,” said Souza. “All these things have helped make SCOR an integral part of this community.”

Souza opened his offices in San Clemente in 1988, and added a satellite office in Rancho Santa Margarita in 1992.

 

New Developments

Three Dog Bakery

Denise O’Connell says the very short move Three Dog Bakery has made allows a fresh start for the business.

The store recently completed its move one door down from its previous location.

“It’s actually a little smaller, but it’s allowed us to design from scratch,” O’Connell said. “There’s more going on in the store.”

O’Connell said the new location also gives her business better line of sight, both to and from the street, as well as inside the store.

Three Dog Bakery will celebrate its grand re-opening Saturday, November 30, the night of the annual Puttin’ on the Glitz event put on by the Downtown Business Association.
