Yes. The choice of where you receive therapy is always yours. While the majority of our patients come to us by physician referral/recommendation, many clients request to see us due to our strong clinical reputation in the community.

We operate in a direct access state where, if your insurance plan authorizes self-referral to physical therapy, a physician referral is not necessary for you to be seen by a licensed therapist. Please check with your insurance though as many health insurance plans require a physicians referral for therapy to be covered. We also offer treatments, services or products that do NOT require a referral and are available on a self-pay basis.

We participate in the majority of major health insurance plans including Medicare and Worker’s Compensation. Please contact us prior to your first visit to see if we participate with your specific health plan.

As a service to our patients, we will gladly file claims with your insurance company on your behalf. In order to appropriately submit these claims, we will need to obtain a copy of your insurance identification card to ensure that we have the necessary information.

Your therapist will conduct an evaluation of your condition lasting between 60-90 minutes. The evaluation is necessary to create a program designed specifically to address your needs for a maximum recovery.

– Referral slip from your medical doctor
– Your medical insurance card
– Your ID
– If you are getting therapy as a result of a worker’s compensation claim or an automobile accident, you will also need to bring your claim information, including claim number.

Please arrive 15 minutes early on your first visit to fill out any necessary paperwork.

We recommend comfortable clothing such as sweatpants or shorts, a T-shirt or tank-top and sneakers.

Each visit will last 60 – 90 minutes on average. Times vary due to the treatment and exercises being performed.

The regularity of your visits will be determined after your initial evaluation, but most patients have 3 visits each week scheduled.


“I am very driven…but a clean friendly atmosphere pushes you even further when getting better is their priority while creating and maintaining genuine rapport! I would never go anywhere but here!”


“For the past 30 years I have worked in a sometimes physically stressful job and have experienced several injuries: a sprained knee, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, and most recently a lower back strain.  In each case I went to Merrill Physical Therapy for treatment. I was amazed at the progress to normal movement without pain when using the exercises, stretching and weight lifting I was shown during therapy sessions. I will be using these techniques to maintain pain free movement and strength for life. Thank you Anthony and Merrill Physical Therapy.”


“Would never go anywhere else Anthony is by far the best physical therapist I’ve ever met or had the pleasure of working with.”


"I had a very painful foot injury that made walking and my daily activities very difficult.  I went to Merrill Physical Therapy and worked with a caring young gentleman, Michael Mathson, who treated me with TLC. Thanks to Mike's great care I am back pursuing my daily tasks and walking without pain.  You guys are terrific! Thanks and keep up the great job."
