Telehealth Appointments Now Available!! 

UD Physical Therapy is now offering Telehealth. In order to continue serving our patients based on our closure, we launched this as a way for patients to continue their physical therapy so they don’t lose the momentum of their recovery.

There are no patient financial responsibilities for Telehealth visits during the COVID-19 crisis.

The health and safety of our patients remains our top priority to schedule a telehealth evaluation or appointment, please email your request to pt-desk@udel.edu or leave a message at 302-831-8893 and we will reach out to schedule you as quickly as possible.

What is Telehealth?

Telehealth is a convenient video and audio appointment that a patient can access from the comfort and safety of their home. This treatment delivery allows patients to continue their care under the supervision of a live, licensed physical therapist. While telehealth is not meant to replace a hands on and in-person treatment session; under these circumstances, it is a safe option so patients do not lose their recovery momentum. 

What do you need?

You can use any computer with a camera and microphone. A tablet or even your smartphone.   Once scheduled your therapist will invite you to a HIPAA ZOOM session either by email or by text to begin.  

 

If you are a new or current patient and would like to discuss telehealth treatment, please call us at (302) 831-8893 and leave a message.  Someone will respond to you.
