Frequently Asked Questions

Q.
Do I need a doctor's referral to access physical therapy services?
A.

In the state of California, physical therapists are able to examine, evaluate, develop a treatment plan as well as work through preventative medicine strategies, in order to address your mobility and functional needs. Some insurances allow 12 sessions or treatment within 45 days, prior to requiring a physician referral. Our close relationships to many of the South Bay's best doctors make it easy and safe.

Early access to a physical therapist's expertise has been shown to reduce medical costs. Advanced Balance Studio's PT's are Doctorate level and utilize medical screening and clinical reasoning skills to insist appropriate treatment, and or appropriate referral to the best health professional.

Q.
What Insurances do you Accept?
A.

We accept all private insurances and cash paying clients. We are in-network with Medicare, ILWU Blue Shield plans. Many out-of-network plans are comparable to in- network coverage. So, make sure to call your insurance to ask for your level of coverage in and out of network so you can make an informed decision.

Advanced Balance refuses to allow third party payers to dictate the level of care you deserve. You can expect to work with your physical therapist, enjoy little to no wait time, enjoy feeling the individualized care and participate as a valued client for life.

Q.
How long does each session last?
A.

Your initial evaluation session will last up to 1 hour. It will involve a discussion of your chief complaint, expectations, explanation of your current limitations and clear development of a treatment plan.

The follow-up sessions will last 30-60 minutes depending on your treatment plan, tolerance to activity, functional and recreational needs. Depending on the response to the initial evaluation and treatment session, the duration of physical therapy plan may require 3-12 sessions.

Q.
What should I bring to my Physical Therapy sessions?
A.

You should wear comfortable clothing allowing access to the area of treatment. Bring your current driver's license or ID, insurance cards, medical findings from others involved in your care, and a list of questions to better understand your mobility needs.

Q.
Why are my options if my insurance coverage runs out or does not cover my sessions?
A.

Advanced Balance Studio wants the best outcomes as soon as possible with your active participation. We pride ourselves in providing the latest evidenced based and best clinical practices to ensure success.

It is important to have a clear understanding of your coverage, as it is your responsibility to understand any limitations. We will work with you in order to ensure you receive the best care. We understand there are limitations and offer cash based sessions, as well as a cash based post-rehab program, with clear agreed upon pricing. Your active participation across the board is essential to your treatment success.

ceo message

My passion is to keep people moving.

I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy, husband, father of two boys and a daughter, practitioner of Brazilian Jui Jitsu and weekend warrior soccer player.

I graduated in 2002 from Mt. Saint Mary's University Master of Physical Therapy program and then obtained my orthopedic clinical specialty in 2006. I worked over two thousand hours of specialized practice with 7 orthopedic surgeons while advancing rehabilitation guidelines and passing a national board exam.

After opening my private practice in 2009, I pursued and received my post professional doctorate in 2012 with focus on Administration and Business management. I continue to participate in professional education courses to offer the latest advances in manual treatment of movement dysfunction and performance enhancement.

My deepest passion is to keep people moving.
