Yes and no. In the state of Alabama, a patient can self-refer to physical therapy without a physician’s referral, however a referral from a doctor is required for your insurance to cover the costs of treatment. Our staff will be happy to help you obtain a referral. Remember that you, the patient, can decide which facility you would like to use and who you want to to be your Physical Therapist, similar to choosing a dentist or choosing a pharmacy to fill a prescription for medicine. It’s that simple!
If you don’t have a primary care doctor or think you may need to see a specialist we can help you with that, too.
We work closely with several doctors in this area and can easily refer you to a doctor and/or specialist and arrange an office visit if needed.
