At the first visit, your PT or OT will ask about your goals, perform an examination and work with you to design a treatment plan that meets your needs. Together you will discuss the frequency and timing of follow-up visits, which are generally one or two times a week for several weeks.

Home Program

You will be asked to do some exercises at home on a regular basis. Your therapist will review them with you and give you written instructions with pictures. 

Clothing

Wear loose-fitting, casual clothing that allows you to move comfortably or is easy to remove. Shorts are best to wear for leg or back problems. Tank tops are best for hand therapy. Hospital-provided gowns are also available.

Insurance Coverage

We accept most insurance plans. If you have questions about your particular insurance coverage for rehabilitation services, call the number on the back of your insurance card. 

What to Bring

Patients should bring a physician prescription/order for treatment, list of current medications, and insurance referral (if it is required by your insurance plan). 

Co-pays 

If your insurance calls for a co-payment, we will ask you to pay at the front desk at the time of each visit. We accept credit & debit cards, checks or cash as methods of payment.
