Do I need a prescription from a doctor in order to receive physical therapy treatment?

No. The state of New York allows for direct patient access, which means a doctor’s referral is not needed to be seen for physical therapy services. As Doctors of Physical Therapy, we have the tools required to treat injuries and conditions without prior intervention of a medical doctor/physician. If we determine that the attention of a medical doctor is needed, we will refer you to your primary medical doctor for follow up.
