In previous posts we mentioned that you have had 2 weeks of back pain. You finally got into to see the doctor. She offered you some pain meds or to get an MRI. When you brought up physical therapy as an option, your doctor hands you a list with 50 clinic names on it.
You begin by calling the first one on the list. Why not? Seems like a good place to start. Someone answers the phone and first question they ask you “what insurance do you have?” They didn’t even ask you what kind of problem or injury you are having.
You rifle through your bag looking for your most up to date insurance card in hopes they accept your plan. They tell you the first opening they have is in 2 weeks. 2 weeks!!! But you are in a bunch of pain right now.
You schedule the appointment and have to wait 2 weeks to get an evaluation with a physical therapist. You show up on the day of the appointment to a very busy clinic that looks like a gym.
Your physical therapist is running 15 minutes late because they are busy seeing 2 other patients at the same time. You start wondering if you will get the attention for your injury that you deserve.
