Choice Therapy remains committed to our patients, employees, and our communities during this uncertain time. The Department of Homeland Security has deemed Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapists as ESSENTIAL health care workers allowing us to remain open. We will continue to provide service for healthy patients in an environment away from individuals showing signs of this illness. We will continue to follow CDC guidelines regarding sanitation, hygiene, and social distancing. We also realize that some people may prefer to stay home. We are offering home therapy visits and also a new treatment method called telehealth, where we provide instruction over a phone or computer right inside your home. Having therapy to address your pain and function can help keep you OUT of the hospital and the ER, allowing their staff to focus on patients that are seriously ill. Please, call our clinics directly with any questions you may have or call 1-800-395-2810. Updates on COVID-19 can be found at the CDC website.
