Your PT, Your Choice: You Have The Right to Choose Where You Receive Physical Therapy!
Do you know, that as a patient, you have the right to choose where you receive physical therapy?
Yes, you may have received a referral from your doctor for physical therapy, BUT
the decision on where you go is ultimately up to you!
There are many things you may want to consider when choosing a physical therapy provider, including:
Location: Unlike a visit to a regular doctor’s office that occurs maybe once a month or less, patients attending physical therapy are often seen two to three times a week depending on the patient’s condition. Because of this, location is definitely a consideration when choosing a physical therapy provider, because you will be spending a good bit of time there and may be making multiple trips to the clinic during the week.

Consistency of Care: Tired of being passed around to different healthcare providers at each visit or having to re-explain your condition over and over again? Are you having to share your time with another patient during therapy sessions?
Here at Flowertown PT you will receive one on one care and you will not be passed around to multiple providers (except under extenuating circumstances). We pride ourselves on providing patient centered care that includes one on one treatment sessions and consistency of care provided by the same therapist at each visit.
Clinical Experience: Physical therapists, like many other healthcare professionals, are required to take continuing educations courses every year to further their knowledge and stay up to date on the most evidence based practices to better treat patients. Knowing your physical therapist’s strengths and specialties is important to see if you are a good fit.
