Incredibly difficult to get phone calls returned, schedule appointments, or have prescriptions refilled. Concern for patients' well being, pain tolerance, and convenience is not a priority amongst the staff. In fact, the patient is made to feel as though they are the inconvenience when they call for a refill or to follow up on a referral. Even when calling at 9am and then going to the office in person, we've had to wait over an hour until 7pm for a prescription refill. OrthoCarolina has a much more friendly, couteous staff that genuinely seems to care about their patients' well being.

Tips & Advices
At the first appointment with a physical therapist, Expect an overall assessment of your condition, which may include exercises to understand your range of motion, balance, and strength. Based on that information, the therapist can then design a regimen.
Physical therapists can work in a variety of environments. While many choose to work in a physical therapy clinic, others will operate out of hospitals and are also able to make house calls to help patients who need in-home assistance and rehabilitation.
Physical therapists can specialize in sports medicine, women's health, geriatric, neurologic, orthopedic​, pediatric, and cardiovascular and pulmonary conditions, among others.
See a physical therapist following a serious muscle or bone injury, especially if pain doesn't go away within a few days, is recurring and dull, or is frequent and sharp. Book an appointment if medication is not helping or if your doctor recommends it.
The majority of health insurance plans do include physical therapy treatment, but the amount covered and the co-pay for patients varies person-to-person. Medicare and workers’ compensation both cover physical therapy.
