COMMUNICATION

It Takes a Team 

We will keep your doctor informed with updates on your child's progress.  We are committed to working with you and your physician to ensure that your child receives the best care possible.

PRE-CERTIFICATION

Making the Process Smoother for You

A physician referral is most often required before any services can be provided.  A physician must specify the patient's diagnosis and type of services being requested.  Our staff will assist you in the pre-certification process for the delivery of services, but we cannot guarantee insurance approval.  We do participate with most private insurances.
