About Ben Jaap

My approach to care: I discovered the joy of hands while working in a hand therapy department of a busy hospital in 2018. That is where I learned to appreciate hands and what hand therapists do. Helping people is what I’m all about, and there isn’t any better way to do it!

Outside of work I enjoy music, playing games, and spending time with my family.
