Same-Day Schedule

FAQ: What Is Your Same-Day Schedule Policy?

Same-Day Schedule

Physical Therapy Sessions

When you begin physical therapy, you schedule your appointments for the following week. On average, each physical therapy session lasts around 45-60 minutes long. We space out appointments to ensure each patient gets their full amount of time. We take pride in providing the best care for all of our patients. That’s why we have a same-day schedule policy.

Same-Day Schedule Policy

Our same-day schedule policy is for patients who have missed two or more appointments without providing notice. This means you would not schedule your appointments in advance. Instead, you would simply call, text, or email our office on the day you would like to attend therapy to see what times are available. Our front desk staff will then reserve the time slot of your choice for that day.

Missing your appointments can disrupt the clinic and your physical therapist. In addition, it can even disrupt other patients as well. While sometimes you may be running behind, or forget about your appointment altogether, it’s important to respect your therapist’s time.

Prolonging Treatment

Your treatment plan was created by your therapist to help you get back to your regular activities as quickly as possible. They established personalized goals and have worked with you to progress toward those goals. When you miss your appointments, it interrupts your plan of care. As a result, it may end up prolonging your recovery. 

We want to do all that we can to provide the care that you deserve. Not to mention, get you back to being pain-free and enjoying life again. The same-day schedule policy will allow you to continue on your recovery journey, without needing to schedule appointments ahead of time. Simply contact our office on the day you would like to have therapy and our team will work with you to find an open time that fits your schedule.
