How long will my physical therapy session last?
Your first visit will last one hour, and most subsequent visits will last about 45 minutes. Our appointments run on time, so it is important that you arrive at least 5 minutes before your appointment time.
Will Florida Hospital Waterman file my health insurance claim?
Yes, as a courtesy we will file your insurance claim.
How much will I have to pay?
If you have a co-pay, deductible, or percentage that you are responsible for, you will be billed at the end of service. Our staff will notify you of your insurance benefits before or at your first appointment.
What is your cancellation policy?
All patients must notify our clinic 24 hours before their appointment time if they are going to cancel their appointment.
What should I wear?
Because you will probably perform some exercises, wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing and sneakers. Also make sure the clothing you wear will allow the physical therapist to easily evaluate your problem.
How many times a week will I be required to come to therapy?
Each patient will have different requirements. Your care can require treatment daily, twice a week, or 3 times a week. This will be discussed with you at your initial visit.
How do I get started on physical therapy?
To receive treatment, you must be referred by a doctor, nurse practitioner, physician's assistant, or podiatrist.
What do I need to bring to my first visit?
Bring your prescription to attend physical therapy from your physician to satisfy the requirements of your insurance company, as well as your insurance card. If you are not sure if we participate with your insurance provider, check our insurance page or contact us for more information.
