Frequently Asked Questions

Why choose us?

Our physical therapists all hold Doctoral Degrees and are Board Certified in Pediatric Physical Therapy.  We work closely with you and your child to create a plan and set goals that are important to you and your child. Because every child is unique, therapy will be individualized to your child. We believe strongly that having a consistent therapist treating your child creates a safe, secure environment for your child to try new skills.

Do I need a prescription?

Because Dr. Stack holds a “Direct Access” certificate for Pennsylvania, you do not have to have a prescription for an initial physical therapy evaluation. However, we prefer to have a close working relationship with your child’s pediatrician or family doctor in order to provide the best quality care and do ask that you obtain a prescription if at all possible. After 30 calendar days, a prescription is required in the State of Pennsylvania. A prescription may also be required if you would like to use your healthcare insurance to pay for your visits.

 

What do I need for the first visit?

Please print out and complete the 5 forms found on the “Forms” page prior to the appointment:
1. New Patient Form
2. Permission for Medical Treatment of a Minor
3. Permission to Exchange Medical Information
4. Payment Agreement Form
5. HIPPA Form

You will also need to provide us with the prescription from your doctor as noted above.

This will save significant time at the first appointment and allow us to spend more time directly with your child.

What should I expect at my first visit?

If you have not already filled out the forms noted above, you will be asked to complete them at the time of the visit.

Depending on your child’s age and reason for referral, you may be asked to fill out additional parent questionnaires.

Please dress your child comfortably.

You will be expected to pay the private pay fee or any copays at the visit. See “How can I pay for my visit?” for more information.

Please allow a full hour for the initial appointment.
 

What insurance do you accept?

We accept most major insurance plans.  As insurance plans are very individualized, please call our office to ask about using your insurance. Fee-for-service and out-of-network options are always available as well.

How can I pay for my visit?

For your convenience, the Pediatric Therapy Center of Bucks County, LLC accepts VISA, Mastercard, Discover, cash or checks. You may also use a health care flexible spending account card if it carries the VISA, Mastercard or Discover logos.

Do you have after-school hours?

After-school appoinments are extremely popular.  Therefore, availability may be limited.  We will do our best to accomodate you.

Will you send reports to my child's doctor?

With your written permission, we are happy to send reports to or speak with your health care practitioner, specialist, school or school therapist. Please fill out the Permission to Exchange Medical Information form found on our Forms page to allow this.
