Frequently asked questions
Do you take my insurance?
I accept cash, credit, and HSA card as payment for services. Many patients recieve partial or full reimbursement from their insurance carrier for "out-of-network" physical therapy services. Due to Medicare regulations, I am unable to provide services to Medicare patients. Filing for "out-of-network" reimbursement is simple process and I can assist you by providing any paperwork necessary.
Why don't you accept insurance?
My experiences in the past have led me to seek out ways to better serve the patient and improve patient satisfaction. Time and time again, patients made these three observations when asked about what would make their experience better.
Do I need a prescription for Physical Therapy from a Doctor?
The state of Florida allows Physical Therapists to evaluate and treat patients without an MD prescription. However, if the treatment duration reaches 30 days from the initial evlauation, the a physical therapy prescription or MD signature on the Plan Of Care must be obtained.
How can you provide Physical Therapy without a clinic and equipment?
While exercise and modality equipment can make it seem like more is offered, I have found that the true benefit of Physical Therapy comes from hands-on care, patient education, movement instruction, and real-life/functional activity modification. I have seen patients recieve all the modalities of care and exercise on all the clinic machines during their sessions, but still have difficulty doing the most important daily activities like navigating stairs or getting up and down off the floor to play with their kids. Training for these activities does not need a clinic environment, in fact what better place to train, than in your own home.
