Working together with your patients

Physician Services

You want the best for your patients recovering from surgery or suffering from physical impairments. At McDonald Physical Therapy we pride ourselves on making our patients feel like family, and helping them quickly progress to recovery. That includes keeping open communication with their physicians about our diagnosis and treatments every step of the way.

 

All patients receive a full evaluation from one of our physical therapists, involving a full history, active, passive and resistive tests, and a neurological screening.

 

We do everything in our power to help patients improve and reach their goals. If a new patient starts therapy on a Friday and has an intense or immediate need for more range following a surgery or acute trauma, we’ll come in during non-office hours Saturday and Sunday and treat them.

 

Our goal is to make our patients glad they’ve come to us, and glad that you referred them to us. We invite you to see what our patients say about us, and look at the list of injuries we have treated with a high rate of success.

Working With Us

McDonald Physical Therapy has been in practice since 1989 because we believe in service beyond normal expectations. We work closely with the primary care practitioners, orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, neurologists and other specialists in town. Most physicians refer to us to try the conservative approach before referring or performing surgery.

 

We feel very comfortable with all the injuries mentioned below. We are always available to discuss any of our examination processes and treatments with you, so please contact us. We would also be glad to assist you and/or your colleagues in better understanding how we can assist you with the care of your patients.
