TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT
To schedule an appointment at PhysioFitness, please call us between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm at 301-273-1590. We make every effort to accommodate our patients’ schedules. If you need to cancel or reschedule, please contact us at least 24 hours in advance.
SPEAKING WITH YOUR PHYSICAL THERAPIST
Our phones are busiest during the first and last hours of the business day. When you call to speak to a physical therapist, our receptionist will gladly take a message if your therapist is not available at the time of your call. Please provide as many details as possible so that when your call is returned, the physical therapist will have all the appropriate information available. Since physical therapists are not always free to return calls during the day, we ask for both day and evening phone numbers. You can also send an email to your physical therapist. We strive to get back to you on the same day.
When visiting PhysioFitness…
Please arrive 10-15 minutes early for your initial appointment. When you do, please tell the office manager that you have arrived and who you have come to see. You may need to fill out several forms and questionnaires prior to seeing the physical therapist. For your first visit, be sure to bring all relevant medical records with you to your appointment, including x-rays, MRIs, and lab work. Musicians are requested to bring in their instrument (if possible) for their first appointment.
We require full payment when services are rendered. We offer multiple payment options, including MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express. Failure to provide payment at the time of services will automatically result in a cancellation of future appointments. We will submit the charges to your insurance carrier, who in turn may reimburse you for (part of) the charges.
We are happy to provide copies of our physical therapy records of your visit(s) to you, your physician(s), legal guardian, or attorney(s). Please ask the receptionist for a “Request for Records” form, complete the form, and your request for physical therapy records will be processed. Maryland law (Health General Sec. 4-304) and the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accounting Act of 1996 allow physical therpaists to charge patients (or the patient’s “personal representative”) a fee for copying medical records. The charges are adjusted annually for inflation in accordance with the Consumer Price Index.
- A fee for copying not to exceed $0.76 for each page of the medical record, and the actual cost of postage and handling.
- Preparation fee of $22.88, if the records are sent to another provider. The federal HIPAA regulations do not allow a charge for a preparation fee for records provided directly to the patient.
We can send your physical therapy records per Federal Express, but you will be responsible for the additional charges.
