Though we remain OPEN for essential In-Person Visits, we needed to move swiftly to respond to the Stay Home, Stay Healthy order from Governor Inslee. We are now offering Teletherapy (telehealth) to provide an option to work with your Doctor of Physical Therapy from the comfort and safety of your home. In the future, we can use this option to check in with us between appointments or during extended periods of travel. This is a great option for you to continue to receive premium care from your PT!
By offering Telehealth as an option, there is no need to interrupt the essential services we provide to keep you moving and keep you healthy for the long run! Your Doctor of Physical Therapy will consult with you one on one and analyze the risk/benefit ratio for an In-person visit, an Outdoor appointment, Telehealth, or to wait it out with short term solutions.
Governor Inslee signed a proclamation on 3/26 that provides payment parity between health care services provided in-person and those provided through telemedicine/telehealth. This means that Telehealth claims must now be reimbursed at the same rate as care delivered in-person. Telemedicine claims cannot be denied by health insurance companies. At this time, Center for Medicare Services has not yet approved payment for Physical Therapists to provide Telehealth, but we remain optimistic this ruling will change. We will keep you posted.
What you can do to schedule a Telehealth visit:
- Consult your Doctor of Physical Therapy to discuss the best care delivery options for you.
- In-person, Outdoors, or at Home – we are here for you!

” I can’t believe how easy it was to meet with my provider! I am in my mid-60’s and not very technically savvy. Doxy.me was extremely easy to use. I learned so much about how to properly perform my exercises in my home setting, sit optimally at my workstation, and safely perform activities in my home with the education and cuing from my Doctor of Physical Therapy. I wish this option was available to me all along! ”
