Typically, your first appointment will last around 1 to 1.5 hours. All following appointments will be approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour. In the event of time constraints please inform your physical therapist and they can abbreviate your appointment accordingly.
Generally yes, but it also depends on insurance. Our office can check your insurance requirements. Arizona Law allows “Direct Access,” meaning no physician prescription is needed to be treated by a Physical Therapist. If you are going through your insurance provider, they may require it before they pay. Our affordable cash pay option eliminates this requirement.
Arizona Is a direct access state. This means that cash paying patients can be evaluated and treated by a physical therapist without a referral from a physician. This is extremely beneficial to patients as they can select their own physical therapists and do not have to incur the additional healthcare costs of visiting a doctor. Call our clinic to set up an appointment today and we will verify your insurance and benefits.
