Atlantic Physical Therapy Center remains open, also offering Telehealth for at-home PT
Atlantic Physical Therapy Center is here for you, especially with the spread of COVID-19 impacting so much of daily life. With schools across the state being closed, we realize that this will leave many student-athletes without a place to train. As healthcare providers, we will remain open to accommodate our patient’s needs for physical therapy. Our clinics are well equipped to handle the needs of athletes, and our physical therapists are adept at treating athletic injuries. Most commercial insurances participate in Direct Access to Physical Therapy, which means you don’t need a prescription from a doctor to be seen.
If you would like to be seen at one of our clinics, rest assured that the health and safety of our patients and team members during this uncertain time is our top priority. In each of our facilities, you will find designated handwashing stations, as well as CDC, recommended hand sanitizer to use while on the treatment floor. We are asking that all patients and staff members wash their hands upon entering the building and again before they leave. Our tables, chairs, and all equipment are wiped down between each use with medical grade disinfectant and we are taking every step possible to adhere to social distancing guidelines.
In an effort to accommodate our patients who may feel uncomfortable in a public setting at this time, we are now offering Telehealth appointments. You can connect and perform your physical therapy appointments with our expert physical therapists from the comfort and safety of your own home. This will allow you to continue receiving the care you need and avoid any long term gap in treatment that may be detrimental to your recovery.
Our Telehealth platform is HIPAA compliant and easy to use. All you need to access this service is an email address and a computer or mobile device with a camera. Telehealth is available immediately to our existing patients. If you are a new patient, you will have to be seen in person at one of our offices for your initial evaluation before utilizing this service.
We are taking this very seriously and doing everything we can to maintain a clean, SAFE environment so that our patients can continue getting the treatment they need. As we work to provide a safe environment for our patients, we ask for their help as well. In an effort to flatten the curve, we are asking that any patient who knows they have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, or if they are experiencing any symptoms (fever, sore throat, cough, shortness of breath); to please be prudent and stay home, so that we can lower the risk of more people becoming infected by this virus and get back to our regular lives and daily routines more quickly.
For more information on Telehealth, or to set up an appointment please call our patient hotline at 877-963-3378.
