    FAQ

    For Additional Questions Please Contact Us At (404) 296-8511

    Can I choose where I want to have therapy?

    Yes. The choice of where you receive therapy is always yours. While the majority of our patients come to us by physician referral/recommendation, many clients request to see us due to our strong clinical reputation in the community.

    Do I need a physician referral to receive therapy?

    We operate in a direct access state where, if your insurance plan authorizes self-referral to physical therapy, a physician referral is not necessary for you to be seen by a licensed therapist. Please check with your insurance though as many health insurance plans require a physician’s referral for therapy to be covered. We also offer treatments, services and/or products that do NOT require a referral and are available on a self-pay basis.

    Does your facility submit claims to my insurance company?

    As a service to our patients, we will gladly file claims with your insurance company on your behalf. In order to appropriately submit these claims, we will need to obtain a copy of your insurance identification card to ensure that we have the necessary information.

    Your First Visit:

    Your therapist will conduct an evaluation of your condition lasting between 60-90 minutes. The evaluation is necessary to create a program designed specifically to address your needs for a maximum recovery.

    What do I bring on my first visit?

    – Referral slip from your medical doctor
    – Your medical Insurance Card
    – Your ID
    – A copy of your medication list including dosages, if you have it
    – If you are getting therapy as a result of a worker’s compensation claim or an automobile accident, you will also need to bring your claim information, including claim number.

    Please arrive 15 minutes early on your first visit to fill out any necessary paperwork.

    What do I wear?

    We recommend comfortable clothing such as sweatpants or shorts, a T-shirt or tank-top and sneakers.

    How long is each visit?

    Each visit will last 60 to 90 minutes on average. Times vary due to the treatment and exercises being performed.

    How often do I go to treatment?

    The regularity of your visits will be determined after your initial evaluation, but most patients have 3 visits each week scheduled.
