Doctor’s Referral

“Can I come to you for Physical Therapy if my Doctor referred me to a different facility?”

This is a question we often get at our office and the answer is…


In fact, if your doctor is affiliated with a hospital system they will most likely refer you to physical therapy within that same hospital system and you may even get a call from their scheduler to set up an appointment.

But this does not mean you have to go to the facility that is on your referral. Your referral is good anywhere! 

For more personal, one-on-one care, consider going to a smaller clinic. 

Or call a clinic that you had a good experience at in the past! 

You are in charge of the quality of care that you receive! 

If you currently have a referral for physical therapy and are unsure of where to go or if you are unhappy with the care you are receiving at a different clinic, click on the button below to arrange a free 20-minute consultation with one of our physical therapists. 

During this session will get a feel for what it would be like to come to physical therapy at Functional Advantage and you can then decide if we would be a good fit for your specific needs!
