Why Request A Free Screening

Our first responsibility to you, the patient, is to determine the correct course of treatment for your unique problem, whether that means a course of physical therapy or referral to a physician for more medical testing.  As you will see in the description below, our intention is to do everything we can to put you on the right track to help your condition.  If that means referring you to someone else, that is exactly what we will do.

When you book your screening we will send you a pre first visit package that will include forms that you can fill out to help us determine how we can help you with your condition. These forms can also be accessed through our Appointment Booking page. Our receptionist can help you complete any sections of the form.

Your therapist will discuss this information and the nature of your problem to determine whether physical therapy treatment is appropriate or not.

If therapy is indicated, we will be happy to schedule a full evaluation for you.

Karl Kleinpeter, PT, DPT


“The healthcare system can be overwhelming and patients can feel like a number that is lost in the shuffle. One of the best aspects of our practice is the personal attention we provide to our patients. We listen to them. We take time to get to know them. We make sure we understand their concerns and we work with them to achieve their goals so they can get back to loving their life. These interactions help us to provide an even higher level of care and I feel that it gives patients a real sense of compassion that we feel for them.”

“As a kid, I dreamed of playing college athletics. After several injuries, I found myself spending the majority of my time in physical therapy. That minor setback led to my new dream; becoming a physical therapist. My passion is to help people in pain return to their activities and allow them to continue to chase their dreams. Every morning, I know I have an opportunity to change someone’s life. Through my own personal experiences I can relate to patients. I try to bring a positive attitude and energy to inspire patients to overcome their setbacks. Seeing patients improve throughout their time in therapy is a rewarding experience that I am fortunate enough to call my career. I am excited to continue learning and have a positive impact on every patient I meet.”
