Checking In for Your Appointment: When arriving for your appointment please check in at the front desk.All
patients and visitors MUST complete a symptom and temperature screen upon
arrival. PLEASE stay home and do not come to the clinic if you are not
feeling well or had a recent exposure to someone who has confirmed or
suspected Coronavirus/Covid-19. Our team makes every effort to run on
time, however, unforeseen circumstances such as late arrivals or emergencies
occasionally require alterations to that time. If you arrive more than
10 minutes late be aware that your therapist may need to reduce your treatment
time or reschedule the appointment.
Visitors and Guests:To limit the number of people in the clinic and in support of physical
distancing guidelines, we are currently discouraging guests from accompanying
patients to therapy appointments unless absolutely necessary. When indicated
(parents of minor patients, caregivers who provide support, etc.) we are
allowing one visitor per patient at the discretion of the treating therapist.
Visitors must complete a symptom and temperature screen.
Evaluation (First Appointment): Your evaluation will take about 45 minutes. During this appointment you
will meet with your primary therapist and he/she will evaluate you and
develop a treatment plan. Please bring appropriate clothes to your visit
and plan to arrive 15 minutes early to your scheduled time to complete
Follow-Up Appointments: Follow-up visits are typically 30 or 45 minutes in length. The frequency
and duration of your appointments is based on your current rehabilitation
needs which will be identified and discussed with you on your first visit.
Patients are encouraged to sign up for our text reminder service to get
a reminder message 24 hours prior to each visit.
Cancelling an Appointment & Missed Visits: If you are unable to attend an appointment please call us as soon as possible
so we can fill that spot. If you miss multiple appointments without notifying
us or if we have not seen you for greater than 30 days you may be discharged
from therapy. If you still wish to continue therapy services after having
been discharged, you will need to obtain a new Doctor’s Referral
