CPTE Telehealth Appointments

CPTE Telehealth Appointments

CPTE remains committed to supporting your overall health and well-being during the COVID-19 Pandemic. This is not a time to ignore the issues that brought you to physical therapy, to live in pain, and make an injury or health condition worse. Physical therapy is an essential healthcare resource to help you during these times of increased stress, activity at home, and the need to focus on your health and safety.

What is Telehealth

Telehealth is a way for us to make sure that our patients are still receiving the highest possible quality of care they need from a remote location. At CPTE, our telehealth services offer live interaction with our skilled physical therapists enabling them to deliver high quality treatment to you conveniently and safely. Your therapist will evaluate you and your symptoms, provide direct guidance and supervision of your individualized treatment program from the comfort of your own home during this quarantine. Your therapist can track your progress and see how you are responding to your treatment and make the proper adjustments and guide you on home strategies.

At a time when obtaining treatment, rehabilitation and achieving wellness goals have been interrupted, modern technology makes it possible for us to begin physical therapy or continue your plan of care.

How does it work?

Convenient and easy to use from your:

This video conference appointment is completed over a platform called Doxy.me which is a HIPAA compliant telehealth program. Once you schedule the telehealth consultation, you will receive a link that allows you access to join the visit at the scheduled time. The software does the rest.
