What can I expect on my first visit?
On your first visit, a Doctor of Physical Therapy will perform a thorough musculoskeletal examination in order to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your individual needs. Please bear in mind to wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing on this day to ease the examination process.
Please wear loose fitting clothes in which you can easily move. If you are being seen for a lower extremity condition, shorts are ideal. If it is an upper extremity condition, a loose fitting t-shirt would be appropriate.
You may wish to bring shorts and t-shirt. We will need a copy of your identification card as well as insurance card. If a copay is required, you will be asked to pay this as well. If you have them and if they are relevant, bring scan/MRI reports, and list of medication.
