Welcome to the Practice Managers desk online.

This area is designed to make it easier to answer questions about our facility when the doctor recommends aquatic or land-based physical therapy to your patients. If you are comfortable with a facility that has established a history with your office, we urge you to visit our Co-Care Alliance webpage where your concerns will be put to rest.

Patient referrals are important as they can make or break your credibility with your patients. We vow that you will never be disappointed with how your patient is received and cared for when in our facility.

The intention is to make it almost effortless to handle the referral process and we urge you to feel free in connecting them directly to our front desk to handle the bulk of the process.

As part of our concierge desk you will be hearing from us when we make follow-up appointments to your office on behalf of your referred patients. The process is an easy one as we will usually ask for three choices of time and date while the patient is in front of us with their calendar.

This service is provided so that we may synchronize the follow-up visit with our re-evaluation schedule. If we are co-treating with another facility or hospital, we handle the synchronization process with them before engaging in a follow-up appointment with you.

We have taken the liberty in posting some useful links that you can use as a quick reference that may be of interest to you. They are listed in the Interesting articles and links area of the Doctors lounge.

Thank you in advance for making us your choice, we promise we will work hard and smart for your patients. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us.

 

Information we need from you to make the process efficient includes:

  • A Doctors prescription with DX Code/s, frequency, duration of therapy and special instructions or we will be delighted to provide you with our referral pad, which contains prompts for this information.
  • Please note Medicare Patients require a new prescription every thirty days. You will receive a re-evaluation no later than 28 days into the cycle.
  • Your office telephone and fax numbers and address
  • Please send a few of the Doctors business cards.
  • If your patient asks if we are experienced with their particular condition, you may check that against the following conditions most familiar to us. Being an organization with many capable relationships, if we cannot assist in our facility we will direct them to specialists through our referral network. This also works well for "snow birds" and patients who simply live too far from us.
