Telehealth at Lakeshore Physical Therapy is Here!




In light of the recent health concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been working behind the scenes to quickly roll out a telehealth option for you.

Here is what you need to know!

What is telehealth? 
An online, web-based option to virtually meet with one of our experienced clinicians to receive evaluation and treatment for your musculoskeletal injuries/ conditions.

What can a physical therapist provide in a telehealth visit?

There are many benefits to meeting virtually with your physical therapist! We can:
  • Update your corrective exercises
  • Teach you self-care techniques to promote tissue health
  • Assist with posture modifications and work station set-up
  • Provide post surgical monitoring
  • Complete a functional movement assessment
  • Provide an injury screening
  • Continue to give you our individualized attention in a virtual setting

Okay, I’m interested - tell me more!
Due to some patient barriers to receiving in-person care, we have established an interactive solution to your physical therapy needs. We are utilizing the web-based platform Doxy (www.doxy.me) which does not require you to download anything or create a profile of any sort.

Does my insurance cover this?
We are working with major insurance carriers to properly bill and cover telehealth services. As this is a new and ever changing situation, this is still underway. For more information on your specific insurance benefits, please contact us directly. 

So what payment options do I have?
We are currently offering a competitive self-pay rate of $75 per visit for a quality one-on-one session with your physical therapist. Don’t forget, your HSA or FSA card can be used towards these visits!

This sounds great! How do I schedule an appointment?
To book your telehealth e-visit, please call one of our offices directly.

Your pain can’t wait and neither should you!
