This model allows me to provide clinical treatment based on the need of each individual without third party insurance reviews, network restrictions and visit limits.

Your first visit is an evaluation. The evaluation starts with questions so that I can fully understand the history of your current condition, how it's impacting you and, what it is you would like to get back to. You'll also be asked about other factors, including your medical history, type of work, sports and recreational activities. The next step is the physical exam, where we evaluate your movement quality, strength, and balance to name a few areas. Upon completion of an evaluation, a PT diagnosis is established and a treatment plan is created to meet your goals.
Follow up visits are scheduled after your initial evaluation. Each individualized session is 45 minutes long. The cost of your follow up visit is a reflection of the time spent in therapy and not based on treatments provided.
