WHAT WILL MY FIRST TREATMENT BE LIKE?

Treatment will be performed at a place of your choosing, whether that is your home, office, or outdoors. At the first visit, we will go over your medical history that will include gathering information about your reason for seeking out physical therapy and your treatment goals. A comprehensive examination and assessment will be performed to discover the root cause(s) of the issue. Then, a plan of care will be developed, incorporating your goals. Treatment performed on the first visit typically includes instruction in a home exercise program to so that you can immediately begin working to resolve your problem or injury.

HOW LONG ARE APPOINTMENTS?

The initial evaluation will last between 60-75 minutes.  This is the time that is reserved for you.  Please have your forms completed ahead of time. If you need to fill the forms during your appointment this takes away from your evaluation and treatment time.  Follow-up appointments can be scheduled for 45 minutes.

HOW DO I SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT?

Please call us at 858-522-0606.  If your call is not answered, please leave a voicemail.  Calls are returned within 1-2 business days.  

WHAT ARE YOUR HOURS?

We typically see patients on Tuesdays, Wednesday, and Friday with the majority of hours between 10-4pm.

DO I NEED A PRESCRIPTION FROM MY DOCTOR?

No.  California allows Direct Access for physical therapy, which means patients are allowed to seek evaluation and treatment from a licensed physical therapist without a prescription or referral from a physician.  However, if you plan on seeking reimbursement from insurance, your insurance provider may require a physician’s referral.

DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?

Speck Physical Therapy is not in network with any insurance provider.  Payment is due at the time of service and upon request you will be provided a receipt that you can self-submit to your insurance provider to seek reimbursement.

DO YOU ACCEPT MEDICARE?

Speck Physical Therapy does not have a relationship with Medicare, which means patients who wish to submit to Medicare for reimbursement for treatment that Medicare normally covers may not be treated by us.
