Our doctors of physical therapy and other staff are here to serve you. If you have questions about your appointments, insurance, treatment, or anything else, please feel free to contact our staff at any time.

Bring your insurance card and a form of picture identification to your visit. We will check your insurance benefits for you prior to your visit. We are able to accept cash, check, credit cards, and HSA (healthcare savings account or flexible spending account) cards for your deductible or copay. In addition, we are happy to discuss payment plans or our reasonable tiered self-pay rates.

When you are issued a home exercise program, our staff will print you a copy for your reference. Some patients prefer a more interactive version of the home exercise program, so feel free to bring your smartphone and we will video instructions for you.
