Frequently asked questions

Do I need a prescription for physical therapy?

No.  New York State as well as Medicare and most insurance companies allow you to begin physical therapy without first seeing a doctor.  If you continue physical therapy beyond 30 days or 10 visits you will need to obtain a prescription from a physician, dentist, podiatrist or nurse practitioner.

What makes New York Physical Therapy different?

Our unique approach involves evaluation of you as a whole person with a keen understanding of the body and it’s various interrelated parts. We work to find the root cause of your pain or issue and use a variety of therapeutic approaches to enable you to return to functioning with a more efficient and integrated system.  In this way, we are frequently able to help people who have not found improvement with other practices or methods.

What can I expect on my first visit?

Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early to complete the necessary paperwork. If you prefer, you can download the forms in advance to complete and bring with you.  Please bring any prescriptions and test results that may be relevant (MRIs, x-rays, CT scans, etc.).

In addition, please bring or wear comfortable clothing that you feel is appropriate for you including, shorts, T-shirt, tank top and/or sports bra.

How long does a treatment usually last?

All treatments are one-on-one individual sessions and last 45-60 minutes.

Do you have a cancellation policy?

We understand that unanticipated events occasionally happen.  Out of consideration for our therapists and other clients who are waiting for an appointment to become available we have adopted the following cancellation policy.

We appreciate 24 hours notice for cancellations whenever possible.  For missed or cancelled appointments without 24 hours notice we reserve the right to charge a late cancellation fee, which is not reimbursed by insurance.  If your appointment is on a Monday, please notify us by noon on the Friday before, if possible.

Do you accept my insurance?

We accept Medicare and are an out-of-network provider with all other insurance companies.  Our billing coordinator can contact your insurance provider to determine the physical therapy benefits of your specific policy. In addition, upon request we will electronically file your claims when provided with the required insurance information.
