Information Regarding COVID-19
We are open and taking patients on a case by case basis. If you are post-operative or feel you cannot wait 30 days for your next physical therapy visit, and are not within a considered high-risk category (i.e. over 65), please give us a call. We will be operating with 1-2 therapists in the most stringent public health capacity.
We appreciate your cooperation, patience, and support during this uncertain time.

As part of the healthcare sector, Physical Therapy is considered an essential business*. Our employees play an important role in the health and well-being of our patients and the communities we serve. We will remain open for business and are accepting new patients during limited business hours of operation. We hope that by providing this information, you can make a clear decision to continue your plan of care with us during this time.
Are you open?
YES! We are open in limited hours in an effort to adhere to public health guidelines. If you are post-operative or feel you cannot wait 30 days for your next physical therapy appointment, please call our office to schedule your appointment today 408-358-1460.
What options do I have if I am unable to come to the clinic?
We offer telehealth video visits if you are unable to come into the clinic for any reason. These video visits are scheduled in 15-minute increments. We recommend you schedule a 30-minute visit to get to know the platform and continue your consistency of plan of care with your therapist. A lapse in care can have detrimental effects on working toward your goals. Schedule your telehealth video visit by calling our front office at 408-358-1460.
What happens if I cancel an appointment at the last minute due to respiratory illness symptoms?
There will be no penalties for cancellations and missed appointments related to respiratory illnesses until further notice.
How do you know if other patients have it? I don’t want to be exposed to the virus.
We are screening all patients according to guidance from the CDC and our local public health department. This includes:
- Taking everyone’s temperature before they enter for their appointment
- Screening on the phone and when people arrive that they are not exhibiting any symptoms related to coronavirus
What are you doing to make sure germs are taken care of at the clinic?
We always have patient safety in mind and disinfect all surfaces on a regular basis, regardless of the coronavirus outbreak. Here are a few extra things we are doing to ensure your health:
- Every therapist and staff member changes into clothes and wears designated shoes at the clinic, which are washed and disinfected at the end of each day.
- Every person entering the clinic will be wearing gloves, and all staff and therapists wear masks.
- Our PT aide is focused on disinfecting every inch of space that is touched using CDC approved disinfectants.
- We are following distancing guidelines to minimize exposure while maximizing therapeutic benefits.
- We have adjusted patient schedules to limit the number of people in a clinic to 10 to adhere to distancing guidelines
We are taking all the cleaning and hygiene precautions recommended by the CDC.
If I have a cough can I come in for my appt?
If you are experiencing any sickness, please wait to schedule an appointment until you are symptom-free, without the use of symptom reducing medication, for 24 hours.
If you have a fever or respiratory symptoms such as cough or shortness of breath and have either traveled internationally in the past 14 days or had close contact with someone who’s suspected or confirmed to have coronavirus, please call your primary healthcare provider prior to attending an appointment.
*The department of homeland security has listed Physical Therapists as essential providers. Per homeland security, we have a special responsibility to maintain our normal work schedule. Physical therapists are essential in flattening the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic. They play a key role in keeping people they can help out of the doctor’s offices and ERs. This will not only free up the medical teams to treat those impacted by COVID-19 but also limit the exposure of those seeking the care of the physical therapist.
