Do I need a Physician's Referral?

South Carolina has direct access for 30 days, which means you are not required to have a physician referral during that time. Once we’ve finished your assessment, we’ll send your assessment to your preferred physician, a medical provider who can write a prescription/referral like an MD, DO, NP, PA, CNM, to have signed off on your plan of care, which will replace your need for a referral.

Do you accept Health Savings Accounts (HSA) or Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA)?

Yes. We will provide you with a detailed superbill or receipt of your visits for you to send into your insurance company. Please review the rules and regulations of your HSA or FSA before your appointment.

How long are the appointments?

An initial evaluation is about 55 minutes so you and your pelvic floor physical therapist will have the time necessary to get to know each other and get to the root cause of your issue. We place a high value on individualized treatment, and we want this to be the best healthcare experience you’ve ever had! Because we spend so much time with you, we’re able to accomplish a lot during each visit.

I'm going to be on my period the day of my appointment, should I reschedule?

Not at all, being on your period doesn’t mean you need to reschedule your appointment. First of all, we can still do a pelvic floor assessment even if you are on your period. If you are fine with it, we are totally fine with it. Second, if you defer the pelvic floor assessment while on your period, there are still so many things we can talk about, assess, and treat that aren’t involving needing to assess the pelvic floor right away. We don’t want you to miss out on your care just because your period has arrived.
