You will be directed to these forms and be able to fill them out online before your appointment to save time.

Step 1: Contact Us

If you feel that physical therapy is necessary, or if your physician has prescribed therapy for you, contact us by phone or feel free to stop by our clinic to schedule your initial evaluation. It is our policy to attempt to schedule all patients for their initial examination within 24 to 48 hours of contacting us for their appointment. Our helpful office staff will be able to assist you in setting up a one-on-one appointment with one of our physical therapists. In cases where an urgent consultation may be necessary, your physician may contact us directly to schedule a more immediate appointment.
