Preamble: Many of the issues I bring to you are very small, yet each issue is just that, an issue. If you take care of the small issues, then you will be able to build and more importantly, focus on the bigger issues...a larger practice and more family time.

"Physical Therapy Evaluations"

Over the last few years, I have been getting requests for physical therapy evaluation templates similar to the evaluation templates created for doctors. Although many of you do not work with PT's, others do in various practice structures. If you employ a physical therapist, I URGE you at the highest level to mandate they use this form to protect you against the potentially lazy/uneducated PT whose work can be your liability as an employer or co-worker.  
I have spent the last few months conferring with PT's to ensure that we have all of the required areas on the template. This form ensures that the PT will not cut corners as the form is legible, VERY complete and meets a "5" level of evaluation. This document will ensure a level of insulation against insurance and governmental audits as it forces the PT to be thoroughly "compliant" in all required areas similar to the doctors evaluation template. 
To get the template, please go to the forms and templates section of the Web site at: Although this template is not included in your consulting fee, I have responded to your requests and have accomplished what is needed.
