See a therapist without a referral!
Direct Access Law GA - 2006 - Revised 2015
After 21 days or eight visits from the initiation of a physical therapy plan of intervention, the PT must receive a referral from the patient’s physician or dentist.
You can now see a therapist without a referral! Did you sprain your ankle over the weekend? Did you hurt your lumbar while hauling lumber? Now you can avoid the lengthy wait to see your doctor or orthopedist.
No Referral Needed!
Every day at the office, we receive calls from new patients who were referred to us for physical therapy, usually by their primary care physicians or orthopedic doctors. However, did you know that you can see a physical therapist even without a referral?
With Direct Access, patients’ therapy is in their own hands. Patients can come to our office for up to 8 visits or 21 days, whichever comes first, without a referral! In most cases, we can even use your insurance for these visits.
If you’d like to schedule an appointment, with or without a referral; or if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to give us a call!
