How often do I need to come?
The frequency of sessions is dependent the reason for physical therapy, scheduling concerns, and budget. I am happy to work around all parameters as needed to come up with a successful plan for PT. I don't believe most people need 2-3x/week PT sessions (like the old days) and that a good home program leads to the most success. Many of my patients see me between 1 and 4 times a month.
DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?
As your preferred health care provider, I am committing all of my efforts to you, rather than your insurance company. For this reason, I have opted to establish myself as an out-of-network provider. I accept direct payment and will bill your insurance on your behalf as a courtesy so you may be reimbursed directly. I also can provide you with a receipt (also known as a "superbill") that you may submit to your insurer for application to your out-of-network benefits. I am unable to see medicare patients for physical therapy services.
For many of our patients, they find paying "out-of-pocket" less expensive (and without the shock of an unexpectedly high bill) then what they would've paid using their insurance at an "in-network" clinic.
You are welcome to use your HSA/FSA funds.
WHAT IS YOUR NEW PATIENT PROCEDURE?
Fill out new patient paperwork and send it back to me prior to our first appointment (or have a hard copy ready at our first visit). Check out the "new patient" section of the website for forms and information.
DO I NEED A DOCTOR’S REFERRAL?
No, Washington is a direct-access state, which means you can access physical therapy services without a prescription. I will communicate all reports to your physician(s), at your direction.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
I am located in Upper Queen Anne in the Arbor Space building.
