Frequently asked questions
What forms need to be completed before I can start?
New Client Waiver - Outlines parameters of participation and policies
Medical Clearance Form - Regular attendance and participation requires the approval of a neurologist or internal medicine doctor. If you have been seen in the past 6 months, the form should be easily filled out. If not, have them contact Dr. Michael Braitsch PT, DPT or Dr. Erin Frost PT, DPT.
Medical History Form - This will allow us to provide proper modifications if needed and to prevent other problems that might occur.
How much are classes?
Class fees are reduced for members of the Dallas Area Parkinsonism Society (DAPS). Drop in rates are $20. Multi-class punch cards offer cheaper prices through pre-payment for classes. The most cost effective method of payment is Automated payments.
If cost becomes the prohibitive factor, please let us know and we will try to make arrangements.
When do classes meet?
Do you take my insurance?
Group exercise programs are not covered by insurance or medicare and are therefore covered on a "self-pay" basis. We try to keep our group classes as cheap as possible and we aim for the cost to be lower than that of a group program that is not aimed at specific Parkinson impairments or run by instructors with less training and qualification.
For physical therapy, we take medicare. We are currently "out of network" for many private insurers; however, we can provide you with an itemized super-bill to submit to your insurance and we can probably save you money!
Group classes are available on a self-pay basis.
