The ability of a person to see a therapist without a physician’s referral.
A physical therapist is able to evaluate and treat a patient for up to 60 days without a referral.

It is recommended to contact your insurance company regarding “Direct Access”; or our staff will gladly assist you with this question. Simply contact our clinic and we will set up an evaluation with a physical therapist.
We accept all major credit cards for payments including same day pay, co-pays, and deductibles.
As our health care system changes, many of us are opting for high deductible plans or no insurance coverages at all. Choice Therapy offers same day pay option for people with this type of scenario giving you the power to see a therapist, the freedom to set the proper visit limits with your therapist and pay a flat rate each session without billing your insurance company.
