Once you receive a prescription for outpatient therapy, you can contact us to schedule your first appointment. Be sure to bring your insurance card with you to your therapy appointment.

For physical, occupational or speech therapy, initial evaluations are scheduled for 45-60 minutes. The therapist will then establish a treatment plan with recommendations for frequency and duration of therapy based on your prescription and diagnosis.
