Those who benefit most from Physical Therapy are individuals who are in need of restoring injured body parts, increasing flexibility, or building strength. We also help improve posture, which if left uncorrected can cause damaging musculoskeletal conditions. Additionally, we help patients who have undergone surgeries and who are in need of therapy to regain optimal physical functionality.
Please bring any records from your previous doctor, a list of your medications, allergies and a list of prior doctors. We also recommend bringing in a list of any questions or concerns you may have. Please make sure that you arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment so that you can provide us the necessary paperwork and insurance information to put you in our system. To save time, you can also print the Intake Forms located on our forms page, and bring them completed to your appointment.
We highly recommend you bring comfortable, nonrestrictive clothing or athletic wear to our physical rehab clinic because oftentimes we will be stretching or exercising you. Your clothes should also allow us to evaluate your area of injury, so please dress accordingly. As for footwear, we suggest comfortable, closed-toe shoes, preferably sneakers. If you have any questions, please contact us prior to your first appointment.
The initial visit takes a little longer than the subsequent visits due to the paperwork that you need to fill out, in addition to the completion of the assessment process. Normally, appointments are usually between 60 minutes.
You will need to attend physical therapy sessions until you and your therapist decide that you have reached your desired level of function or that further therapy would not be beneficial. Often therapy will also be monitored by your physician.
Again that depends on the same factors associated with how long treatment will take. We make a treatment plan for you, which includes follow up and regular maintenance visits to our physical rehab clinic. If at any point you feel like you are not progressing at a satisfactory rate, we will collaborate with you and modify your treatment plan. We will always keep you informed as well about your progress.
After your initial evaluation we will send a copy of the examination to your doctor along with progress notes at regular intervals.
We will make every attempt to schedule you with the therapist you desire to see. However, there may be times when another physical therapist will treat you to accommodate your schedule. All of our physical therapists are fully-licensed and enjoy delivering high-quality care.
Will my insurance pay for therapy?
Generally, most insurance companies pay for physical therapy. We recommend that you call the benefit number listed on your insurance card to check on your insurance benefits before you start therapy.
Do I need a physician’s referral for physical therapy?
Most insurance companies do not require that you get a physician’s referral for physical therapy. If you do have a referral, bring it with you to your first appointment. Medicare requires the patient to be seen every 30 days by their physician to continue with therapy.

Insurance 101 for pt patients
To better understand the terms of your plan, you first must understand the terminology. Here are a few common questions regarding insurance lingo:
What is a deductible?
What is a Copay?
What is a Coinsurance?
This type of out-of-pocket payment is calculated as a percent of the total allowed amount for a particular service. In other words, it’s your share of the total cost. For example, let’s say:
- Your insurance plan’s allowed amount for an office visit is $100
- You’ve already met your deductible
- You’re responsible for a 20% coinsurance
What is a Coinsurance for Medicare Part B?
Medicare Part B patients are responsible for a 20% coinsurance, which typically amounts to $11-25 per visit. If you have original Medicare as your primary insurance, but you also have a secondary insurance, the secondary payer becomes responsible for the 20%. In some cases, the secondary insurance also charges a copay, coinsurance, or deductible, We recommend contacting your secondary insurance carrier to find out.
What if I can’t afford to pay these amounts as frequently as I need care?
Your health is our number-one priority. As such, we are happy to arrange a payment plan that works with your budget. That way, you can pay for your care over a time-frame that works for you. Simply ask to speak to our office/billing manager.
