  • Do you do baseline testing for concussions? How frequently should baseline testing be done? How much does it cost?
    Yes. Balance & Concussion Therapy Center provides 2 options for baseline testing: - Tier 1: ImPACT computerized neurocognitive testing, pediatric and adult versions ($65, adult/over 13 version can sometimes be done at home) - Tier 2, Recommended: Balance testing and visual motor speed (2 areas often affected by concussive injuries, additional $30, not recommended without ImPACT test) How often? ImPACT recommends that testing be repeated every year until high school; every other year in high school; at least once in college. Who needs baseline testing? Dr. Macklin advises people in the community to consider the potential risk and reason for doing baseline testing. It is designed primarily for athletes or people involved in occupations that involve potential bodily injury. In the case of a person, of any age, who is involved in a contact sport or similar activity, it is strongly recommended that baseline testing be performed. This will allow the medical team to have a much better idea of the patient's recovery if an injury is sustained.
  • Why do FAQs matter?
    FAQs are a great way to help site visitors find quick answers to common questions about your business and create a better navigation experience.
  • Do you take my insurance? Good question and we have one for you too!
    Balance & Concussion Therapy Center does not participate with any insurance companies. Clients are required to pay at the time of service. A receipt in the form of a superbill with the required diagnostic and treatment codes is provided for clients. Our office does not assist with the submission process and does not guarantee reimbursement. We would like you to ask why we have this policy. This is because insurance companies do not pay for service like ours: 1:1 care from specialized physical therapists with expertise and a passion for helping people after concussions or with dizziness/vertigo. Bespoke attention even between visits to provide the best support for the best recovery. Individualized care with compassion and expertise that gets results efficiently and comfortably. A proven track record of results that our clients rave about.
  • Do you participate with Medicare?
    Although Balance and Concussion Therapy Center (BCTC) is enrolled in Medicare, payment from patients is required at the time of service. BCTC abides by Medicare's fee schedule for its members and will submit the bills to Medicare. However, BCTC does not guarantee reimbursement from Medicare, only submission of the appropriate billing information.
  • What is an FAQ section?
    An FAQ section can be used to quickly answer common questions about your business like "Where do you ship to?", "What are your opening hours?", or "How can I book a service?".
  • My family member is suffering with dizziness or a possible concussion - where do we start?? How soon can we be seen?
    These "invisible" conditions are very alarming for the person experiencing the symptoms/injury and their family and friends. The first problem is, outside of the Emergency Department, it can be difficult to find a provider and to get an appointment efficiently. The second problem is finding a provider with the expertise needed to evaluate and treat these conditions properly. In order to facilitate early contact with an expert in the field to provide initial guidance and education as well as tips for immediate symptom management, Balance & Concussion Therapy Center offers a 25 minute virtual consult with Dr. Macklin that can be scheduled at your convenience. The $65 fee is applied to the cost of a full evaluation if Dr. Macklin determines that the patient would benefit from her intervention. If the patient presentation warrants intervention from a different provider, Dr. Macklin will be able to provide that advice to clients.
  • Where can I add my FAQs?
    FAQs can be added to any page on your site or to your Wix mobile app, giving access to members on the go.
  • Do you treat BPPV? How soon can I be seen?
    Yes, we do treat BPPV, expertly. Expertly? Yes - this means that we use state of the art video frenzel goggles that experts in the field unanimously agree is necessary for accurate diagnosis and treatment. (There are 6 different canals that the culprit "crystals" can be in - treatment only works when you know which one :) We know that BPPV can start suddenly and be incredibly debilitating. We make every effort to get patients in within 1-3 days and we provide treatment immediately if we confirm the diagnosis. This means that patients can start to recover immediately.
  • How do I add a new question & answer?
    To add a new FAQ follow these steps: 1. Manage FAQs from your site dashboard or in the Editor 2. Add a new question & answer 3. Assign your FAQ to a category 4. Save and publish. You can always come back and edit your FAQs.
  • How do I edit or remove the 'Frequently Asked Questions' title?

  • Can I insert an image, video, or GIF in my FAQ?
    Yes. To add media follow these steps: 1. Manage FAQs from your site dashboard or in the Editor 2. Create a new FAQ or edit an existing one 3. From the answer text box click on the video, image or GIF icon 4. Add media from your library and save.
  • Why can't I be seen if I have Medicare??? (We're working on it!!)
    There is a law that is not well known that does not allow physical therapists to "opt out" of Medicare. This is likely done to protect the insured clients. However, it makes it ILLEGAL for us to treat patients who have Medicare, EVEN IF THEY UNDERSTAND AND REQUEST TO PAY PRIVATELY, it is actually illegal for us to treat these clients. We are in the process and can't wait to remove this from our FAQs! If you would like to be informed when we are enrolled so that we can see you, please send us a message and we will be sure to let you know!
