Of all the PT providers I have ever seen, you are by far the best. Thanks so much for your evidence based, practical, integrative, and so well-informed expertise and knowledge. You have taught me so much in just a few months.
Can I still attend therapy while menstruating?
Absolutely! There are no contraindications to internal pelvic floor work when you have your period. Often, there’s plenty of work to do externally so no need to take a break from treatment during your period.
Active infection (yeast, urinary tract/bladder) is a contraindication for internal work.
Internal treatment will always be a collaborative decision we make together!
Do I need a physician’s referral for Physical Therapy?
If you already have one, please bring it to your first session.
No referral? No problem. Virginia has limited “Direct Access” Physical Therapy. Virginia law allows licensed physical therapists to provide direct physical therapy evaluation and treatment services for up to 30 consecutive days without obtaining a referral/prescription from a physician or other healthcare provider. If treatment is necessary beyond the initial 30 day period, the physical therapist will communicate with your physician to obtain authorization to continue treatment as needed.
Do you accept Medicare?
No, I am not a participating provider with Medicare. If you have Medicare coverage, you may only be seen by a Physical Therapist who is a participating provider with Medicare.
Do you treat men?
My practice specializes in women and children. To find a physical therapist who treats men, please click here on the PT Locator (http://pt.womenshealthapta.org/)
CANCELLATION & PAYMENT POLICY
I accept full payment at the time of service. You will be provided with a superbill you may choose to use to submit to your insurance company for potential reimbursement depending upon your individual plan. I provide a worksheet (link) you can use to assist you in learning more about your benefits.
I ask that you provide at least a 24 hour notice if it becomes necessary to cancel or change an appointment. If I do not receive proper notice, 100% of the amount due will be charged to your account.
