What To Expect At Your First Visit
When coming into your first appointment at one of our rehabilitation clinics, please remember to bring your ID, insurance cards/information, a list of the medications you are currently taking and your script/order for therapy if your doctor has not faxed it already. Please show up at least 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time. If you’d like you can view, print, and fill out Patient Forms at home so you don’t have to fill them out in the office. You may submit your forms electronically to us on our secure website. If you have any recent reports from your doctor involving details from a surgery, MRI or other test results, we encourage you to bring that information as well. If you are currently using a splint, sling, crutches, or assistive device for mobility, it is helpful if you bring them to your initial visit as well. We encourage you to wear clothing you are comfortable in that allows for movement and access to the area of your body that we will be addressing. You can expect the initial evaluation visit to take approximately 60 minutes.
Your therapist will review the evaluation findings with you and develop goals and a treatment plan based upon your specific needs. Your therapist will consider your condition and the doctor’s order when establishing the frequency of treatments.
We are a contracted provider for most major insurances in the Midwest. It is the patient’s responsibility to know if their therapy session will be covered by their insurance. Once we have your insurance information we will contact your insurance to verify your coverage. If you still have questions about your insurance coverage, our billing department will also be happy to help you. The billing department can be reached at 605-339-0729.
Most follow up therapy visits typically last between 40-60 minutes depending upon your condition, treatment, and progress.
