Many physicians own their own therapy department. While there are some good therapists working for physicians, many studies have demonstrated disadvantages to the patient. One study found physician-owned clinics treat patients for 50 percent more visits than do independent clinics (1) Another study demonstrated that self-referral increases the cost of medical care covered by workers’ compensation for each of the three types of service studied physical therapy, psychiatric evaluation, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). (2) Still one more study indicated that licensed and non-licensed therapy providers spent less time with each patient in physician owned clinics and physical therapy assistants were substituted for physical therapists. Physicians will claim they work better with therapist on site and a better continuum of care. Private practice therapists are very qualified and always follow protocols set by orthopedic physicians.
i have improveed a lot. All the exercises ans therapy did a lot of good. Every one here were so helpful and explained everything very well. Rate it 10/10.
I almost didn’t come back after the first week of therapy because the pain was so bad but I’m so glad I did. My experience was so good with all of the therapy assistants. I felt they were very caring.
I’ve loved my experience here. The staff was MOST EXCELLENT. Buena and Rodney were mostly my helpers. Both were attentive, respectful, and professional. You have a staff that you should certainly be proud of. Thank you for helping me. I appreciate everything you’ve done to help get me back to my Life.
a nice place everyone is nice to you here. they care about you a lot they want you to get better.
Great. Open late so I didn’t have to work a lot of work. Physical Therapist were easy to work with and very friendly.
“Thank you Chris and the AthletePlus team for all your help in getting my knee back to “normal”. I can use it again with ease and no pain”
i connected with the staff. i had fun and I am glad i dont have to get surgery.
Very professional and kind people who answered each question I had throughout the Low Back Program
I felt that the people and atmosphere were very supportive and helpful. I appreciated the patience and humor of the therapists. I would recommend Athlete Plus looking to get healthy.
Fantastic. I came in with back pain and what I would have thought was major back instability. I think my results have been more than I could have ever imagined. My back pain is usually a zero now and I am not afraid to get back to the things that I want to do. The staff is great. Every person gives you what you need, they can all answer any questions you may have. Would it be weird to say I am going to miss this place!
