What To Expect

What do I need to get started?

You will need to obtain a prescription from a medical doctor in order to begin physical, occupational or speech therapy treatment. Contact us today and we can get started.


Does insurance cover therapy?

Medical insurance generally covers physical, occupational and speech therapy treatment. However, each insurance plan is different. You can check with your insurance carrier to determine your coverage. Or, if you prefer, you can call us today and our office staff will be glad to assist you in determining your benefits.


What will I do on my first visit?

Please plan on coming 15 minutes before the start of your appointment to complete your new patient paperwork which includes information about your injury, current function and pain scale. You may save time by completing the appropriate paperwork prior to your appointment. 


Bring along your physician's referral, driver's license, your insurance card (if applicable), your day planner to schedule appointments and wear comfortable clothes. We also need a list of all your medications with name and how often you take them and what each medication is for. If your child is being evaluated, please arrange for any siblings who are not being evaluated to be watched over by a sitter or family member as a parent's input is invaluable to the therapist conducting the assessment.


Each patient will be evaluated by a licensed therapist. You can expect the appointment to take approximately one hour. Each patient's situation is unique and your plan of care will be set up just for you. For future visits, we ask that you schedule two weeks out and let us know at least 24 hours in advance if you are unable to make your scheduled appointment.
