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.
WHY IN-HOME SERVICES?
Bringing therapy to the home, playground, gym or community location allows the therapist to tailor the care to your child’s specific needs and to help you integrate skills across environments.
WHAT IF I PREFER CLINIC BASED CARE?
For those families who prefer a traditional clinic setting, who are outside of our mobile service area, or whose child requires specific equipment, your child’s session may be scheduled at our fully equipped pediatric outpatient clinic.
Some insurance plans may require clinic based care in order for you to use your insurance.
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 SHOULD I HAVE READY FOR THE FIRST VISIT?
Please print out and complete the 5 forms found on the “Forms” page:
1. New Patient Form
2. Permission for Medical Treatment of a Minor
3. Permission to Exchange Medical Information
4. Payment Agreement Form
5. HIPAA Form
Please also have 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.
Make sure that an older child understands that this is a bit like school…a time to focus and listen to the “teacher.”
You will be expected to pay the initial evaluation fee for the visit. See “How can I pay for my visit?” for more information.
Please allow a full hour for the initial appointment and one-and-a half hours for a TheraTog/DragonFly consultation. It is best to leave other children at home, or cared for by another adult, during the evaluation if at all possible.
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 and evening visits are available but availability may be limited.
WILL YOU SEND REPORTS TO MY CHILD’S DOCTOR?
WHERE ARE THE FORMS I NEED TO FILL OUT?
All forms can be found on the Forms page on our website. We can also mail copies to you in preparation for your appointment.
“Deb was unbelievable in helping my daughter. Super professional, caring and knowledgeable. I would recommend her service for everyone.”

to his old self.”
“Professional, gentle, helpful and sweet.”
“My son loves Ms. Margaret! He is starting to walk up stairs without holding the railing. He has much more stamina and is walking longer distances.”
“I really liked the personalized plans, the friendliness of the staff, and how our therapist tried new things not only as our son grew, but also to find what exercises worked best for him.”
“My daughter has been wearing TheraTogs for 2 weeks now and we already see improvement in posture. She seems comfortable wearing it and we look forward to seeing more improvement.”
