HandsOn: Tele-PT

N E W S L E T T E R

TO OUR CHERISHED PATIENTS:

We are proud to announce that during these challenging times our office will be allowed to remain open! Our goal is to continue to assist you with your health and treatment goals; while remaining a functioning small business for our team. This will be possible via Tele-Physical Therapy (TelePT). Our qualified and trusting staff are still available and ready to continue working with you. Their professional and knowledgeable abilities will be able to be communicated to you via phone/video call. These types of services are not uncommon and fall under approved TeleMedicine standards and practices. Many insurance companies already allow and approve for these services to be provided to their members. This is a great and effective alternative option for all our patients; New & Existing. We highly recommend this option to all, especially those patients that do not want to stop treatment or stop their current progress. We are more than proud to be able to provide this to our patients and community during these trying times. On behalf of all of us at Hands-On Physical Therapy, we would like to give a big Thank You to all of you for your continued support and consideration. Please be safe and healthy.

Sincerely, Hands-On Physical Therapy Team

“I feel like a newperson!” “I want to sincerely thank Fara for the wonderful work she has done… My story is a simple one…I had severe pain in my calf. The pain was so bad at times that my daughter took to the emergency room. I thought I was having a heart attack or a traveling blood clot. After my diagnosis, I started coming to Hands-On and I feel like a new person. I’m so grateful. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!” - Licia A.
