Columbia Gorge Physical Therapy is now offering Telehealth appointments which allow you to video conference with your physical therapist when you are unable to make it into the clinic for an appointment. We use a HIPPA compliant Telehealth platform to furnish your appointment and video conference.
During these appointments a Physical Therapist will be able to complete a follow up appointment with established patients where we can check in on progress with plan of care, review home program, correct any errors with exercise, and modify treatment as needed if symptoms are improving or worsening. In order for us to provide a Telehealth visit, you will need to come to the clinic for an Initial Evaluation visit. You will receive a screening call prior to this visit per CDC recommendation and limit exposure to you and others. Following your initial evaluation and if Telehealth is determined appropriate, we will also progress you through your plan of care while answering any questions you may have about your condition or address any concerns in your progress.
These sessions are ideal for individuals who are unable to make it to their appointment due to illness or avoidance of a widespread pandemic. Telehealth is an efficient way to see a physical therapist that can screen for necessity of further care or referral to a hospital or medical doctor, if needed. This is a cost-effective way to receive care in a time when resources may be limited within the healthcare system.
What is the cost of a Telehealth appointment?
Appointments are currently being billed through your insurance. We also have cash pay option. If you have an HSA or FSA account you can pay for your sessions with these accounts.
Self pay cost $45.00 for established patients.
Patients who have not been evaluated before should call our office and make an appointment. We are following strict CDC guidelines, including but not limited to: phone call screening prior to the initial visit, distance within others, sanitizing, and hand washing. During the initial evaluation visit, your therapist will determine if you are appropriate for Telehealth and will rule out the need to refer you to other emergent healthcare providers.
All appointments are scheduled for 25-45 minutes.
Please call our office at (541)386-1211 if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment.
