Dear Patients, Friends and Family,
During this difficult time, our main priority as your physical therapy provider is to ensure that you receive the care you need in the safest environment. GPTNY office is currently closed for patient care (we will let you know once we reopen). We are currently transitioning our patient care fully to our Telehealth Service on Google Hangouts.
To schedule a telehealth appointment (or reschedule your upcoming appointment) please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (212) 598-5913 and our Receptionist will contact you shortly to setup a video session.
Take advantage of our Telehealth Service so that you don’t lose clinical progress or momentum in your journey to recovery.
What is Google Hangouts and how does it work?
Google Hangouts is how we setup your Telehealth Appointment. Your Therapist meets with you and administers your therapy live via computer or mobile device.
Our Receptionist will send you a video meeting link at your scheduled appointment time, and your treatment session will begin.
The insurance coverage for Google Hangouts is the same as an in-person visit.
How to join a Google Hangouts Telehealth Service Appointment
Telemedicine can improve the quality of care for patients with both medical and mental health conditions. A recent study showed that with telemedicine, patients had:
- 38% fewer hospital admissions
- 31% fewer hospital re-admissions
- 63% more likely to spend fewer days in the hospital
- Were more engaged in their healthcare
