For Your Appointment:
It is our intention to provide you with the best care possible. The following information will acquaint you with our operating procedures and what to expect while you're in physical therapy:
-- Please arrive 10-15 minutes early for your initial appointment, and on time for all your treatment appointments. Your appointment may need to be rescheduled if you arrive late. Please inform us if you cannot make your scheduled appointment. We can be flexible in rescheduling, but we need to hear from you. Voice mail messages can be left for us after hours on 310-653-6865. (We require 24 hours notice prior to your appointment to cancel).
-- Please dress appropriately for your appointment, e.g., comfortable clothes for low back, shorts for lower extremity problems and athletic shoes for exercise.
-- If at any time during an appointment you feel a chaperone should be present, please let us know and one will be provided for you.
-- Due to limited space and patient privacy, visitors and children are not permitted in the treatment areas. Inform your therapist if you are being treated by another provider for the same condition. Unattended children are not permitted in the waiting area for safety reasons.
If you are not able to keep your appointment with the therapist; please contact us 24 hours in advance. You will receive a no show if you fail to attend your appointment with the therapist. For the workout therapy sessions, we offer a unique scheduling method that will prevent you from receiving any no shows but you are responsible setting your own appointments up and keeping track them.
