Do I need a doctor’s referral to receive treatment?
Functional Medicine treatment (Fatigue, hormone health, pelvic health, sexual dysfunction, optimal performance, etc):n No physician’s referral is necessary however we are just one part of your team to help you reach your health goals so should you decide that you want us to reach out to your PCP, with your permission, we would be happy to discuss our program with them. We leave this decision up to our patients.
Physical Therapy (muscle and joint pain, pelvic health, sexual dysfunction): Direct Access refers to visiting a physical therapist without a prescription or referral. You don’t have a prescription for physical therapy? Nothing to worry about!
Physical therapists can be contacted directly without a physician’s prescription or referral. All fifty states and the District of Columbia have made a ruling enabling patients “direct access” to physical therapy services and programs.
In other words, the government made it acceptable for individuals to go straight to a physical therapy clinic of their choice and receive the resources and treatment they require.
