Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a doctor’s prescription to start therapy?

No, you can come directly to me without seeing the doctor first. I have a direct access PT license. If i feel that your situation requires a doctor’s attention I will recommend you follow up with your physician.

Do you take insurance?

I have chosen to not contract with insurance companies. This allows my patients (as well as myself) to decide what to treat and how to treat it. YOU determine when you have met your goals, not the insurance company. Because I see all patients one-on-one, we get so much more accomplished in one visit that you end up needing less visits overall.
If you have out-of-network benefits with your health insurance, I will provide you with all the documentation needed to submit for reimbursement from your insurance company. Payment is due at the time of service. I can accept cash or check or credit card (Health Savings Account as well).

How Do I know if I have 'out-of-network' benefits?

Call your insurance company and ask them if your plan includes out of network benefits.

If the answer is yes, ask your insurance the following questions:

  •  Do I have an ‘out-of-network’ deductible?
  • Have I met my deductible for the year?  If not, how far away am I from meeting the deductible?
  • Is there paperwork that must be filled out when submitting the out of network claims? If so, Do you provide that paperwork?
  • Do I need to be pre-certified for physical therapy sessions in order to receive reimbursement?

What type of space do I need for treatment?

You will need a quiet, private space for treatment.  In most cases you will need enough room that you can lie down comfortably. I have a portable treatment table, yoga mat and all necessary equipment needed to address your needs.
