Call us. Receive and provide information to our receptionist. Schedule your initial appointment. You have an option to download the intake forms here. Please fill out the required forms and bring with you or simply fill them out on the day of your visit at the office.
On the day of your initial appointment please bring your prescription or referral, health insurance card, photo ID (i.e. driving license) and wear comfortable attire. Arrive to the office preferably 10-15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time and sign in. The front desk receptionist will then collect all necessary documents from you and prepare your file. Although, we make every possible attempt to begin your appointment right on time, prior to your arrival the therapists are preparing themselves to devote as much time as necessary to you during your visit. Therefore, you may experience a short wait time prior to your appointment. This is on the first visit only.
You will be escorted to our evaluation room and will be evaluated by one of our doctors of physical therapy, who will become your assigned therapist throughout your physical therapy regimen. Following the evaluation the therapist will conclude and discuss with you their findings, diagnosis, treatment plan, goals, prognosis and time frame. It is very important throughout the process that you feel comfortable asking any questions you may have, and always feel free to provide any additional information to the therapists. We strive to ensure that you are always clear on “what’s going on” during your treatment. Upon completion of the evaluation you will typically receive some treatment and initial instructions for what to do at home.
At the end of your visit (60-90 minutes) you will stop by the front desk again and schedule your upcoming appointments for a time most convenient for you.
