Scheduling an Appointment


Evaluation Appointment

Whether referred by a physician or self-referred, your first visit to one of our physical therapists will be an evaluation.  The therapist will use this appointment to identify what may be causing the problem(s) and to formulate a rehabilitation plan of care.  At the completion of this appointment the therapist will let you know if additional appointment(s) are needed - a follow-up appointment.

To schedule an evaluation appointment:

  • By phone with PT/Sports Medicine at (614) 292-0130
  • In person with PT/Sports Medicine

Follow-Up Appointment

After you have been evaluated your therapist may determine that you need 1 or more appointment(s) for treatment.  These appointments are called follow-up appointments. Follow-ups often include exercises, manual therapy, and education.

It is important, in order to achieve the goals identified during the evlauation, that physical therapy follow-up appointments meet the following criteria when scheduled:

  • An evaluation has been performed.
  • A follow-up appointment is scheduled within 7 days of a previous follow-up or within 14 days of the evaluation.
  • A follow-up is not scheduled the day after a previous follow-up.
  • A follow-up is scheduled with the same therapist who completed the evaluation.

To schedule a follow-up appointment:

  • Online via MyBuckMD ***Limited to Follow-up visits
  • By phone with PT/Sports Medicine at (614) 292-0130
  • In person with PT/Sports Medicine

*Please be aware that when scheduling online you must meet the above criteria.  If your appointment violates any of the criteria, you will be notified via secure message that your appointment has been cancelled.  You will then need to call Physical Therapy to re-schedule your appointment.

Cancelling an Appointment

Physical Therapy appointments must be cancelled at least 24 hours prior to the appointment.  Appointments cancelled within 24 hours will be assessed a missed appointment fee.
