What to Expect
Every patient has a unique health history, diagnosis and personal goals. When you come for your first appointment, we will create a personalized treatment plan for you.
When to Arrive
On average, a patient’s first visit lasts about an hour. We typically ask patients to arrive 15 minutes early to sign-in, complete paperwork.
What to Bring
On your first visit, you’ll need to bring your physician referral or prescription (if needed), your insurance card, your primary registration forms, your ID or driver’s license and your co-payment (as applicable).
How it Works
During your first visit, your therapist will do an initial evaluation and discuss your plan of care. The therapist uses this information to set goals for your continued treatment. Your subsequent visits will focus on treatment that is based on your diagnosis and individualized goals.
