Yes. The choice of where you receive therapy is always yours. While the majority of our patients come to us by physician referral/recommendation, many clients request to see us due to our strong clinical reputation in the community.

Yes. A physician referral is required by your health insurance plan for you to be seen by a licensed therapist. We also offer treatments, services and/or products that do NOT require a referral and are available on a self pay basis.

We participate in the majority of major health insurance plans including Medicare and Worker’s Compensation. Please contact us prior to your first visit to see if we participate with your specific health plan.

As a service to our patients, we will gladly file claims with your insurance company on your behalf. In order to appropriately submit these claims, we will need to obtain a copy of your insurance identification card to ensure that we have the necessary information.

Your therapist will conduct an evaluation of your condition lasting between 30-45 minutes. The evaluation is necessary to create a program designed specifically to address your needs for a maximum recovery.

– Referral slip from your medical doctor
– Your medical insurance card
– Your ID
– A copy of your medications list including dosages, if you have it
– If you are getting therapy as a result of a worker’s compensation claim or an automobile accident, you will also need to bring your claim information, including claim number.

Please arrive 15 minutes early on your first visit to fill out any necessary paperwork.

We recommend comfortable clothing such as sweatpants or shorts, a T-shirt or tank-top and sneakers.

Each visit will last 30 to 45 minutes on average. Times vary due to the treatment and exercises being performed.

In order for you to achieve the results you deserve, you will be given a treatment plan after your initial evaluation. It is important for your recovery that you attend every appointment outlined by your physical therapist and prescribed by your physician. You may start to feel better after only a few visits, but can relapse if you do not complete your entire course of therapy.

Testimonials

"Just a note of thanks for the wonderful care I have received at Cape Cod Hand Therapy. The front desk staff create a very welcoming atmosphere, and there is very little waiting. Clearly you have a very well run office. This has been a very stressful time with some doubt about my ability to return to work. Your competence and professionalism was very reassuring. I simply couldn’t be happier with the results of my therapy. Thank you so much.”
“I want you to know how much I enjoyed my therapy at Cape Cod Hand . Your skills and personal touch could always be counted on as I anticipated each visit. I sing your praises to all of my colleagues and to my other health care providers. The fact that you specialize in the upper extremity and offer a small intimate setting, sets you apart from the other. Thank you again!”
Lara
“I can’t thank you enough for all of your help and support. It was a very tough time for me and you were gentle, firm, and always encouraging. Your office was warm and friendly and added to the overall “healing”. And my elbow is back in business which is the best part (I’m still doing my exercises!)”
Jane
“Sincere thanks for everything. Full extension 99% fabulous. I will forever sing your praises.”

Dr. Brian Labow
“It doesn’t seem like going to the doctor’s should be this fun! But it was, and much more. Over the two months I was there, I feel like I got the best care – smart, state of the art, compassionate… just what I needed. I so enjoyed meeting and knowing you three, and your many other patients! and I wish you continued success and all my best.”
