How does someone know if they need one of your services?
We treat people who are either in chronic pain or people who need physical therapy post-surgery. A lot of replacement surgeries have mandatory physical therapy afterwards. We also treat people who have had a stroke.
What is your goal in your practice?
To help as many people as possible to get rid of pain without medication or surgery. Many people think there is no hope, but we can help a lot of the people.
Explain to us what’s unique about Physical Therapy Group of Florida?
We are a small practice and that means you get one-on-one time with a licensed physical therapist. We only see two patients at a time, so each patient has plenty of time with the doctor. We are a family-owned (Anthony Bullen, MSPT, is the Founder and my husband), and operated clinic and we know that patients feel much better when they have quality time with the therapists.
Within 48 hours we can schedule an appointment for the patient.
What are some of the biggest questions you get from new clients and how do you alleviate their concerns?
The biggest questions are how long it is going to take to get rid of the pain and how much experience we have with the issue they are suffering from. They also ask what happens after physical therapy and how to make sure they don’t have that issue again.
What is the success rate of your treatments?
Everybody gets better with physical therapy, but not everybody gets to 100% better. However, we find 80% of people get better and can avoid surgery. For the 20%, we then recommend surgery. The surgery success rate is only 50%, and that’s why we recommend Physical therapy first. Physical therapy is also much cheaper.
What if you feel you can’t help someone?
We work with several doctors in the area that we trust, and we would send the patient to one of those doctors for a consultation.
Do you take insurance?
Yes, we take all major insurances. If people don’t have insurance, we have self-pay packages. We also have care credit which is a credit card with 0% interest.
What’s the best comment you have ever heard from a patient?
We have over 300 google reviews that are positive, but the best ones are the ones where people say, “You have changed my life.” We also like the ones that say we are a family.
