Call 318-813-2970 to inquire about your particular situation. A referral from a physician or other healthcare provider may be required. Other information that will expedite the process is a copy of your insurance card (front and back).
Appointment requests, referrals and insurance information can be faxed directly to us at 318-813-2981. Once we have this information, our billing office will verify your insurance coverage and notify you if any co-payments, co-insurances, or deductibles apply. The therapist assigned to you will then call you to schedule your initial evaluation appointment.
This will vary depending on your diagnosis and the type(s) of therapy you are receiving (physical, occupational, or speech). There will be some standard forms for you to sign after you check in at the front desk.
Then, the therapist will spend the first part of the session gathering information about your medical history, how you are functioning at home/work/school, and your diagnosis, injury, or surgery. If you have recently had surgery, your therapist will typically take down your dressing to assess your incisions/portal sites for signs of infection. Your therapist will also ask you what goals you would like to achieve with therapy. The therapist may give you a questionnaire, take measurements, and perform testing to provide you with a therapy diagnosis. They will then discuss goals and the treatment plan with you. They may also give you a written exercise program to perform at home between therapy visits.
