I am a physical therapist with 23 years of experience in various settings currently working as sole practitioner providing one on one care, helping people recover from musculoskeletal injuries. I provide alternative therapies of Hellerwork and Feldenkrais based movement re-education, combined with traditional manual skills. I also provide peer review services to payers to determine medical necessity, appropriate use of codes and reasonableness of care. I am currently seeking contract work in peer review for documentation to payors. I am also interested in working with practices to review documentation and offer education to enhance documentation and thus better payment from insurance.
