Your treatment program may include non-invasive treatments such as:

Your nurse navigator

As part of the program, our nurse navigator will help coordinate your care. Your navigator will assist you in coordinating your recommended care as well as following you throughout the duration of your care within the program to ensure you are progressing.

At the time of initial contact, the nurse navigator will complete an extensive medical and health history. The information we gather at each visit helps us develop an individualized, interdisciplinary care plan that aims to get you back on your feet faster!

How to make an appointment

To obtain a referral, discuss the program with your physician and ask for a referral or call the nurse navigator directly. Self-referrals are welcomed.

Once the nurse navigator receives the referral, you will receive a call within 24-48 hours to establish an appointment with a provider. Appointments will be provided within 24-48 hours of initial contact.
