NO REFERRAL NEEDED!
In Pennsylvania, you can be treated without a referral from your physician by a physical therapist with a Direct Access License. Ditzler Physical Therapy is Direct Access certified, and, as a healthcare consumer, you have the right to choose your physician, your hospital, and your physical therapist.
What is Direct Access?
Direct Access means you have the right to see your physical therapist as your primary practitioner for musculoskeletal complaints. If you have muscular-related aches or pains, there is no need to see your physician first. You can schedule an evaluation with your physical therapist at any time.
