My Physician wants me to go to a different Physical Therapy clinic.  Can I still come to Advantage?
Yes, you may choose who you wish to go to for your Physical Therapy.  Tell your physician you prefer Advantage Sports Medicine. By Massachusetts State Law, Physical Therapists have "Direct Access" meaning a Physical Therapist may provide services independent of  physician prescription.  Most insurance companies require a referral from a Doctor, Physician Assistant or Nurse Practitioner.  Some insurances require referral from your PCP only.
