Telehealth Physical Therapy Services

If you can't travel to our physical location for expert pelvic or orthopedic therapies, our physical therapists can see you - in the cloud!  We can evaluate, educate, guide and provide a variety of treatments through our telehealth services.

What is Telehealth?

As defined by NY State Public Health Law Article 29, "Telehealth" means the use of electronic information and communication technologies by telehealth providers to deliver health care services, which shall include the assessment, diagnosis, consultation, treatment, education, care management and/or self-management of a patient.

How Does  Telehealth Work?

Telehealth is conducted via a two-way electronic audio-visual communication platform to deliver clinical health care services.  It cannot be done via means of audio-only telephone communication, fax machines, or electronic messaging alone.

Is My Medical Information Safe?

Yes. EMH PT uses the Zoom Healthcare platform that is HIPAA compliant, plus we have a Business Associate Agreement with Zoom.  Your conversation and information is completely private and safe.  Discuss your journey with your physical therapist,  learn progressive therapeutic body exercises, practice mind-exercises to strengthen resilience. Let us help you achieve optimum function.

No Doctor Prescription Required

NY State Direct Access allows a licensed physical therapist to evaluate and treat a patient without a doctor's prescription. This appllies to direct care as well as telehealh.   Your physical therapist will refer you to a doctor if significant gains are not made within the first month of care, or sooner.
