Did you know that YOU have the right to choose your physical therapist? When you get a physical therapy referral from your physician, you can visit any provider you like.  The choice is yours. You can either visit the provider recommended by your physician, or any other provider that you feel comfortable with.  

  • The state of MA has direct access which allows the patient to see a physical therapist without a physician's referral. If you don't know whether you need a referral, don't worry. Just call our office and we'll get the answer for you.
  • Your physician may advise you to visit their own in-office physical therapy facility or one that is run by a large hospital. You can do so, or research and use an independent physical therapist in private practice - THE CHOICE IS YOURS.
  • You are not obligated to go to any particular physical therapy office / clinic; even if your surgeon or physician suggests that office.
  • The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) requires it's members to abide by the Association's Code of Ethics. This ensures that they are committed to providing competent and compassionate care.
