Brown was discovered in her Roswell, Ga. home unconscious in her bathtub on Jan. 31. She was in a medically induced coma for nearly three months after that. The only child of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown was recently transferred from an Atlanta hospital to a rehab treatment facility.

Now, Dr. Mark Liker, who works as the Medical Director and Neurosurgeon at Dignity Health Northridge Hospital, has given his thoughts on Bobbi Kristina's health. While he has not treated Bobbi Kristina, he shared his insight.

"I don't know where she stands right now," he said according to Extra Friday. "If she is not able to respond, then the physical therapy is usually performed on a regular basis and it is limited to range of motion exercises, so they will move her arms and legs just so her legs and arms don' go into permanent contraction."

He added that they will also keep trying to get some sort of response from Bobbi Kristina's brain by giving "frequent impulses for the leg to the brain."

He said that has a chance of improving her ability to "function" and even give a "better recovery."

Dr. Liker continued and said that a couple of things that will prevent Bobbi Kristina from completely recovering are blood clots and any infections.

He went on to give his sympathy for Bobbi Kristina's family but said there is hope.

"I tell families you just have to wait and you have to be very patient. This is not a day-to-day thing. You will not see changes day-to-day, you may not ven see change week-to-week, it may come more slowly, and I'm sure that the facility is doing the best they can in terms of rehabilitation and ways to help her."
