For your convenience we accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. If you have a question related to your bill, please contact our billing specialists at (318) 222-8892.
You may need a referral from your physician or medical provider (primary care doctor, nurse practitioner, orthopedic surgeon, podiatrist, chiropractor, etc.) for insurance to pay for your physical therapy treatment. For example, if your insurance is an HMO/managed care plan and you are required to obtain a referral from your physician, the referral must be obtained before you can be seen for an office visit. Please coordinate this with your physician in advance. Appointments will be rescheduled if required referrals are not received in the office by the time of your visit.
Brewer Physical Therapy will accept a physician referral by fax, by phone, or by email from your provider. We will need the signed prescription within days of your referral, or you may bring the signed referral form with you to our office during your initial visit with us.
LATEST PHYSICAL THERAPY RESEARCH
Is physical therapy (PT) better than steroid injections? A new study in the New England Journal of Medicine found that patients with knee osteoarthritis treated with PT experienced less pain and better physical function after one year than patients who received steroid injections. These findings suggest the benefits of PT for knee osteoarthritis may be more long-lasting than earlier believed.
