Do I need to see my doctor before I can go to Physical Therapy?
NO, Physical Therapy in Iowa is direct access, meaning you can come directly to us without seeing a doctor. There may be a few exceptions, but as long as you have a primary care physician we can take care of contacting them for the necessary paperwork.
Do I need to complete any forms prior to my first appointment?
There are forms that need to be filled out prior to your first appointment which can be found below. These forms can be printed and filled out prior to showing up for your first appointment to save time or filled out once you arrive in the office. If you choose to fill out the forms in the office, please allow 15 minutes prior to your appointment time to get all information entered so your appointment can begin on time.
