You must obtain a referral order from a licensed physician to begin Cardiopulmonary rehabilitation. You may bring it to our scheduling department, or it can be faxed to us at: 912-369-9502.
Once we have your order, we will verify your insurance and inform you of any co-pays or co-insurances you may be responsible for, schedule your initial evaluation, and pre-register you.
On the day of your appointment, you must report to registration first, then to the rehab department where you will be seen by the clinical staff.
If you have any questions about Cardiac or Pulmonary Rehab you can reach us at 912-369-9448.
Rehabilitation is not something that happens in one session; it's a process. It is designed to restore you to your fullest potential. Therefore, it will take regular participation for a period of time to achieve the desired outcome(s).
Our coordinators are committed to helping you achieve your maximum potential, but it takes you, the patient, to actively participate in each session. You may also be instructed in a home activity program that you will need to carry out on your own during, and probably after therapy. Completion of your home program, as instructed, will help make your rehab a success. We look forward to working with you!
