Patient-Centered Individualized Care

PATIENT INFORMATION

New and Returning Patients

Your comfort is our first concern. We provide a clean environment and private treatment rooms. We listen intently, evaluate thoroughly, and involve you in every phase of your treatment program. Please read the following reminder before your visit:

New Patient Forms

 

To save time on your first visit, download and complete the following forms ahead of time:

  • Consent for Physical Therapy Treatment

  • HIPPA Privacy Notice

  • Financial Policy

  • Workers' Compensation / Auto Injury Liability

When should I arrive? 

If you sign the paperwork before you come, you only need to arrive about 5 minutes early to complete a short survey regarding your pain.  If you want to wait to do everything at the office, please attempt to arrive 10 minutes in advance.

What should I bring? 

Please wear comfortable clothing to your appointment.  Please bring to your appointment:

  • Photo Identification

  • Prescription/doctor’s referral

  • Insurance card

Don't have a prescription?

In Delaware, the Direct Access law allows you to see a physical therapist without a prescription from a physician. The sooner an injury is treated, the quicker the recovery. If your insurance does not require a referral, you may directly schedule a visit with a physical therapist.

What will my first appointment include?

Your first visit will last approximately one hour in length. During that time, your therapist will take a thorough history of your symptoms as well as perform a comprehensive, movement based evaluation looking for distinct patterns of pain responses that are objective, reproducible and reliable. Based on your response to this assessment, you will be given an individualized exercise program.

Electronic Survey

At the start of treatment, at select intervals during treatment, and at the end of treatment, we ask all patients to complete a very brief questionaire related to their symptoms.  This allows us to thoroughly track how much our patients are getting better, and how they rate our services.  This allows us to continually improve.
