What types of insurance do you accept?
We accept all types of insurance, including Medicare, and work with most insurance carriers. We do not participate with any HMO or EPO insurance plans. If you have a compatible insurance plan, our highly trained front desk personnel will make the entire process as seamless as possible. We start by gathering your information and then make all the necessary phone calls for you. After we verify your benefits to assure that your visits will be covered, you’ll be contacted to schedule an appointment.
Do I need a prescription to receive physical therapy?
No. Physical therapy in New Jersey is governed by “Direct Access” laws, which simply state that a licensed physical therapist may perform physical therapy services without a prescription or referral from a Medical Doctor. This means we can be your first point of contact for any therapy or rehabilitation need you may have. If you have already obtained a prescription from you doctor, that’s okay too. Either way you can begin your treatment immediately.
Who will be overseeing my care, and does everyone follow the same treatment plan?
You will have a physical therapist devoted to your care. During your physical therapy sessions, you will work with your therapist one-on-one to address your problem areas and achieve your desired outcomes. After your initial evaluation, you will be treated and prescribed a customized program targeting your chief complaint. In our experience, getting the patient involved with their care yields the best results. Let our physical therapists help you make a comeback!

What credentials do your physical therapists have and are they licensed?
Our therapists are licensed and insured, and hold Doctorates in Physical Therapy. This means they can thoroughly evaluate and diagnose all your physical problems and sources of pain, while also providing comprehensive, effective treatment.
We also have Orthopedic Certified Specialists (OCS) on our team. This is a board certification provided by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) that distinguishes leaders in the field.
