Thank you for considering Community Physical Therapy for your rehabilitation needs. Below is a brief description of what you can expect during your initial visit.

Visiting NYS licensed physical therapists? Here is what you need to know so you can get the most out of your one on one physical therapy treatment. We appreciate your interest in the NYS licensed physical therapists at Community Physical Therapy (CPT). We are ready to assist your and your rehabilitation needs. Below is a brief description of what you can expect during your initial visit to our office.

During your first visit to Community Physical therapy, a NYS Licensed Physical Therapist will conduct a thorough evaluation of your condition and provide a brief treatment. Initial visits usually range from 1 to 1 ½ hours. Follow up visits are usually 45 minutes to 1 ½ hours. Treatment times may vary depending on your condition. View a full list of the physical therapy conditions treated.

It is recommended that you wear clothing that allows exposure of the injured area (i.e. baggy t-shirts or tank tops for shoulder injuries and shorts or baggy pants for knees). Skirts or dresses are not advised. Proper attire will allow your therapist to evaluate your condition more effectively. Changing areas are available for those who need them.

Please bring all pertinent reports regarding your condition to the first visit. This includes doctor’s prescriptions, MRI or X-Ray results, etc. You will also need to provide all physical therapy insurance coverage information, such as your insurance card or claim number. Prior to your initial treatment, you will be required to fill out a few forms. You may complete them upon arrival for that visit or download them and complete them at your leisure (just don’t forget them at home).



“I was referred to Community Physical Therapy after falling down a flight of steps in my home and suffering from a T12 burst fracture and undergoing a spinal fusion from T10 to L2. 4 months after my surgery and still in a brace, I first met Roz Sofer, my physical therapist, who is a Certified Orthopedic Specialist. From my initial visit, I have always been treated with respect, dignity, kindness, and compassion.

The care I have received has been wonderful and has taken me from feeling like I would never have a normal life to being productive and active. Ms. Sofer and the entire staff have always been very supportive and helpful, which has made my transition easier both physically and emotionally. I would highly recommend Community PT to everyone in need of excellent care.” Stacey O’Toole, Spinal Fracture/Fusion
