At Evoke Wellness Coconut Creek, our entire team is dedicated to our patients. Our primary mission is to evoke healing and wellness through proven therapy for you or your loved one in recovery. The Evoke Wellness Coconut Creek staff ensures that your individual needs are met, and the best possible treatment is provided for the best possible outcome.
While the Evoke Wellness at Miramar staff includes licensed physicians and nurses, that is only the tip of the iceberg. Our team consists of a wide range of behavioral health professionals who are there to help you pave the road to recovery. Psychiatrists, therapists, counselors, and other medical professionals have come together to set the course for recovery.
Many of our staff have gone through recovery themselves, and as a result, they have devoted themselves to helping you on your journey. To get started with our great team, call Evoke Wellness Coconut Creek at 866.693.3871.
