At STAR Physical Therapy, your health and well-being is our top priority.
The management team at STAR has been diligently researching and watching all developments surrounding COVID - 19. Amid so much uncertainty, as a small business that has been part of this community for 38 years, we have been focused on making the best decisions for our patients. We have done so through engagement with our professional organizations, government agencies, and our physical therapy colleagues throughout the state of NY. We have been constantly monitoring the situation so that we can ensure the safety of our patients and clients. The health and well-being of our patients and staff is of utmost importance to us. Our mission has always been to improve the quality of life of our clientele and that need still exists. Presently, we have made the decision to stay open, while putting additional parameters in place that will minimize risk to anyone who enters our building. Of course, we ask for your cooperation in this as well.
In the meantime, this week we are set to begin training for Telehealth PT services that may be available as soon as 2 weeks from now. We will update you as these services become available.
We also understand that many people may be experiencing musculoskeletal pain and are unable to make an appointment with a physician. We wanted to be sure that all our past/current patients know that under the Direct Access Law a patient can come in for either 10 visits or 30 days of therapy WITHOUT a referral from a physician. Therefore, if you are experiencing any pain or discomfort and would like to be seen now, it is likely this will be covered by your insurance. This law is covered by most insurances, please give our office a call to set up an appointment if you would like to be seen now.
Thank you for your love and support during this difficult time. Stay healthy and keep moving!
