The Initial Evaluation
We ask our patients to arrive 15 minutes before their scheduled appointment time. This allows our staff to properly acquaint you with the facility, finalize any paperwork and allow for you to change into exercise clothes if needed.
Items we must have copies of:
- Insurance Card(s)
- New York State Photo ID/Driver's license
- Prescription from your physician for physical therapy (if applicable)
- Referral (only if required by your insurance company)
- MRI Report (only if you have one; no films please)
What to wear:
We recommend that you bring or wear gym clothes to your physical therapy appointments. For lower extremity conditions please wear shorts or pants that can be pulled above the knee. We have an area for changing, lockers for you to store your personal items, and showers (we provide soap, shampoo, and towels). We suggest that you bring a lock to secure your personal items.
Following your evaluation, your therapist will recommend and discuss a treatment Plan-of-Care (POC). Our front desk staff will schedule you for follow-up appointments according to your POC. Please allow about 1-1:30 hours for this appointment.
