What happens during my first visit?
During your first visit you can expect the following:
Arrive at your appointment 15 minutes early to complete your paperwork, or download it from our website if available <here>.
You will provide us with your prescription for physical therapy.
We will copy your insurance card and ID card (drivers license, state id, etc)
You will be seen for your initial evaluation by your therapist.
What do I need to bring with me?
Make sure you bring your physical therapy referral (provided to you by your physician) and your payment information. If your insurance is covering the cost of physical therapy, bring your insurance card.
How should I dress?
You should wear loose fitting clothing so you can expose the area that we will be evaluating and treating.
How long will each treatment last?
Treatment sessions typically last 30 to 60 minutes per visit.
How many visits will I need?
This is highly variable. You may need one visit or you may need months of care. It depends on your diagnosis, the severity of your impairments, your past medical history, etc.
Why should I choose a private practice physical therapist?
We believe that we can provide you with the highest quality of care available and do it in a cost-effective manner. You will work closely with your physical therapist and in most instances, your case will be managed by the same physical therapist from the beginning to the end of your experience with us.
Who pays for the treatment?
In most cases, health insurance will cover your treatment. Our front office is happy to discuss and clarify your insurance coverage. We are in network for Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, and Medicare.
What happens if my problem or pain returns?
Flare ups are not uncommon. If you have a flare up (exacerbation), give us a call. We may suggest you come back to see us, return to your doctor, or simply modify your daily activities or exercise routine.
Is my therapist licensed?
Physical therapists (PTs) and physical therapist assistants (PTAs) are licensed by their respective states.
