Yes. The choice of where you receive therapy is always yours. While the majority of our patients come to us by physician referral/recommendation, many clients request to see us due to our strong clinical reputation in the community.
We operate in a direct access state where, if your insurance plan authorizes self-referral to physical therapy, a physician referral is not necessary for you to be seen by a licensed therapist. Please check with your insurance though as many health insurance plans require a physicians referral for therapy to be covered. We also offer treatments, services or products that do NOT require a referral and are available on a self-pay basis
We participate in the majority of major health insurance plans including Medicare and Worker’s Compensation. Please contact us prior to your first visit to see if we participate with your specific health plan.
As a service to our patients, we will gladly file claims with your insurance company on your behalf. In order to appropriately submit these claims, we will need to obtain a copy of your insurance identification card to ensure that we have the necessary information.
Your therapist will conduct an evaluation of your condition lasting between 60-90 minutes. The evaluation is necessary to create a program designed specifically to address your needs for a maximum recovery.
– Referral slip from your medical doctor
– Your medical insurance card
– Your ID
– If you are getting therapy as a result of a worker’s compensation claim or an automobile accident, you will also need to bring your claim information, including claim number.
Please arrive 15 minutes early on your first visit to fill out any necessary paperwork.
We recommend comfortable clothing such as sweatpants or shorts, a T-shirt or tank-top and sneakers.
Each visit will last 60 – 90 minutes on average. Times vary due to the treatment and exercises being performed.
The regularity of your visits will be determined after your initial evaluation, but most patients have 3 visits each week scheduled.
“Metro Spine was highly recommended to me by my primary physician when I asked him for the best available Physical Therapy in Chicago. Only in my late 20s, I began finding it painful to walk (and impossible to run). I had already visited several PTs looking for help and was told that my body was shot from college athletics and the answer was to give up being physically active. Fortunately, my experience with Jocelyn was COMPLETELY different. She was able to accurately diagnose the cause of the pain in our very first session and took my recovery as a personal challenge, designing a therapy program that was completely tailored to me. Not only did she get me walking again without pain (which I had been told by other offices was impossible- guess not) , but I’m back into Cross-Fit workouts, Triathlons, and Team Sports. Amazing.
Also I got to know the entire office staff along the way and cannot say enough good things about the entire team. The fun office banter between staff and supportive environment made for a positive experience during recovery. I highly recommend Metro!”
“Can’t say enough about this place. They rock! I had some issues with my shoulder and Jocelyn (PT) was a lot of help. Very patient, knowledgeable and made what could have been a grueling experience enjoyable. I actually looked forward to my visits. I would highly recommend Metro!”
