What to expect


Attire:

Please wear comfortable clothes that will allow easy access to the part of your body that is being examined, such as shorts, tank top, or sports bra. You may be asked to wear a gown if clothes are too tight or restrict your treatment.


Your first visit:

The first appointment for the initial evaluation will be 90 minutes.  

We will begin by discussing your current condition and concerns. We will follow with a comprehensive examination to discover their main causes, and how to properly address them. Please bring any relevant medical reports or images.

After the examination, I will thoroughly explain my findings.Together we will create goals based on your individual needs. I will provide you with self-treatment strategies that you can perform on your own at home. We work together to meet your goals.

You do NOT need a prescription from your doctor!

I am a direct access provider. This means that you do not need a prescription from your doctor to receive Physical Therapy. However, I will make recommendations if I feel it necessary that you follow up with another health care provider after my evaluation or during the course of treatment so you receive the care you need.


Patient forms

Please download the New Patient Intake Form and Informed Consent Forms.  

Please download and fill out these forms prior to your first appointment. Please also bring any medical reports or imaging relevant to your current condition.


follow-up sessions:

The follow-up sessions are either 30 or 60 minutes. Follow-up sessions are spent one-on-one with your physical therapist. Treatments vary depending on individual need, and usually include: manual therapy, neuromuscular re-training, and exercise prescription for home. The treatment sessions are active, progressive, and consistently working toward the patient’s goal achievement.

rates & insurance:

I am an out-of-network provider. However, many insurers offer reimbursement for a percentage of your physical therapy treatments. After your treatment you will be provided with a super-bill, detailing the charges and treatment codes for each visit. This bill can be submitted to your insurance company for reimbursement. The exact amount of reimbursement depends entirely upon your insurance plan. 


questions about out-of-network benefits?

Can I bill my insurance for out-of-network benefits?

Of course! For each visit, you will be provided with a super-bill detailing the charges and treatment for you to submit to your insurance company. The exact amount that may be reimbursed by your insurance company depends entirely upon your insurance plan. Please click on the Insurance-Benefits-Worksheet in Patient forms to help determine your insurance benefits for physical therapy.

Why is using my insurance more expensive than cash pay rates?

For most people, cash pay rates are more affordable than using insurance.  Shocking, right? The copay is rarely the only cost to the patient. At a clinic that accepts insurance, they legally have to bill your insurance company. If there is any deductible to be met, the patient is responsible for the remaining amount minus the copay already paid. If you have to meet your deductible anyway, wouldn’t it make more sense to see a highly reputable physical therapist where you have their full attention at every appointment?
