Here are just a few of the things that make Monarch Physical Therapy different than your standard PT clinic:
We Come to You: Dr. Luke will come to your home or office to provide physical therapy treatment. Forget about the hassle of sitting in traffic to get to your physical therapy sessions.
We spend 10x more time with you: Each treatment is a complete hour one-on-one with a doctor of physical therapy. No treatment or instructions are provide by aides, assistants, techs, or students.
We Treat You, Not Your Insurance: We provide cash-based treatment and do not accept insurances. (Although, we can provide you a receipt of services rendered that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.) Your plan of care and individual treatments are not negatively influenced by restrictions from third party payers, which means you are getting the most optimal care for you. Let your physical therapist determine your treatment, not your insurance company.
