Most appointments can be seen the same day or within 48 hours. Your privacy and comfort are a priority. Remember to wear comfortable clothes and be prepared to complete a brief health history form.

At our initial evaluation, a trained therapist will determine your needs and develop a specialized treatment plan. Special tests will be performed to identify the basis for your movement problems. Our therapists have a solid knowledge of manual therapy and will make a clinical decision on what type of treatment will best meet your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What type of insurance is accepted?
A. Please call our office at (315) 349-5558 to find the most up-to-date insurance information. We will accept all local insurance plans. If we are not already an approved provider, we will apply to become a provider.

Q. I am on Medicare. What is the maximum that I am allowed to use?
A. Medicare has no cap on benefits when services are provided by a hospital-based physical therapy department, and the benefits are determined to be medically necessary.

Q. How long do patients usually need treatment?
A. Each patient is evaluated differently and a specialize treatment plan is designed for each individual. After your initial evaluation and at your first appointment, we can let you know what to expect. Treatments typically take one hour, and two to three sessions are held each week. Usually, a patient receives treatments for four to six weeks.

Q. Do I need a referral to come to Outpatient Physical Therapy?
A. Most insurance companies require a referral from a physician. We suggest you call your individual insurance company to verify your coverage, benefits and any applicable co-pay. Your co-pay is your responsibility, but we will work with you to manage your care within your means.

Q. Are the therapists trained and licensed?
A. Our therapists are graduates of accredited therapy programs and are licensed by New York State. Many of our staff hold Masters degrees in therapy, have many years of experience in orthopedic physical therapy, and hold certifications in treatment of the spine and specialties in strength and conditioning. Our therapists actively pursue continuing education opportunities in a wide range of areas including spinal disorders, shoulder and knee injuries, sports medicine injuries and total joint replacements.
