Patient Agreement


Welcome to POST Physical Therapy!

Please read and sign at the bottom.

We strive to provide our patients with excellent service and quality care. We will recommend treatment and set goals for you. In order to reach those goals, appointments must be attended. We would appreciate 24‐hour notice if you need to cancel an appointment so we can fill your appointment time. If you do not give 24 hours notice or you fail to show for a scheduled appointment, a $50 fee will be billed to you. Our number is 617‐860‐6430. If you miss 3 consecutive appointments, we may have to notify your physician and will require a new referral in order to continue your treatment.

Our staff will contact your insurance company to verify your physical therapy benefits and let you know what your responsibility will be at the time of service.

We encourage you to call your insurance provider to discuss your coverage and what your financial obligations may be.

Please speak with our Front Desk Specialist if you have any questions regarding your appointments, insurance, financial responsibilities, or any other issues.

Please speak with your therapist if you have any questions regarding your Physical Therapy treatment. We thank you for choosing POST Physical Therapy and we look forward to working with you and helping you.
