Do I need a referral from my physician?
We do not require a referral but many insurance companies do. Please check with your insurance company. If you have difficulty doing this, contact our insurance & billing office at 301-733-8060 so we can help assist you with this.
How do I find your office?
Our office is located at 227 N. Cleveland Ave., Hagerstown, MD 21740.
What can I expect when I arrive for my first appointment?
Please arrive 15 minutes before your appointment to ensure all paperwork is completed. You will then meet with a physical therapist. Your therapist will take some medical history, perform an exam and then discuss the findings with you. You and your therapist will work together to develop a treatment plan along with goals for recovery. You will most probably be instructed on exercises to do at home. Doing your exercises every day can help to speed your recovery. You should allow one, to one and one-half hours, for your first evaluation appointment.
Should I wear special clothing?
It is preferable to wear or bring shorts, elastic waist band slacks or a sleeveless shirt but this is not necessary.
What should I bring with me?
Please bring your insurance card, driver's license, (or picture ID), your referral (if you have one or if your insurance requires it) and a list of all your medications. Please print and complete the Patient Intake Sheet and bring it with you to your appointment.
Will my physical therapist communicate with my doctor?
Yes, a copy of your initial evaluation, periodic updates, and a discharge evaluation will be sent to your doctor. Please let us know when you have an appointment with your doctor so we can send an update to your doctor prior to your appointment.
How will I benefit from physical therapy?
Our goal at O’Neill Physical Therapy is to “Get you Back in Action”. You and your therapist will discuss your individual goals. Generally these include decreasing or eliminating your pain, returning to your normal activities and learning ways to prevent future problems.
What insurances do you accept?
We accept most major insurances. If you have concerns, please feel free to call our billing/insurance office at 301-733-8060.
How much will my physical therapy cost?
Call the toll free number on your insurance card. They will be able to tell you what your physical therapy benefits are and explain your copays and deductible. If you have trouble getting this information you may call our insurance office at
301-733-8060 and we will call your insurance company.
Are you open on weekends?
We are closed on weekends so our staff can enjoy time with their families. We do offer early morning and evening appointments. Those fill up fast so be sure to schedule ahead of time.
Do you have parking?
There is free street parking right outside our office door.
Is your office handicapped accessible?
Yes. If you require a wheelchair or other assistance, please let us know that when you schedule your appointment. One of our staff will help you from your car, into our building
