In Virginia, Direct Access allows you to receive physical therapy services without first obtaining a referral from a physician or other healthcare provider. All you need is to identify a doctor to whom you would like us to send a report to on the day of your first appointment. You can then be seen for 30 days of physical therapy before the doctor needs to write a prescription. It’s that easy.
Under Direct Access, you can receive a one-time Physical Therapy evaluation at any DOAR clinic without first obtaining a physician referral. If your PT identifies a need for physical therapy, we will communicate with your physician for approval. To schedule your evaluation, just give us a call!
