Comstock Physical Therapy will be open with TELEHEALTH sessions from 3-23-2020 through 3-27-2020 due the Covid19 concerns.

Our physical location will be closed for hands-on patient treatment due to social distancing requirements.

We will be calling all of our patients to see if they would like to schedule with one of the therapists for TELEHEALTH. Our understanding at this point as that most insurances will pay for a telehealth visit, with the same conditions (co-pay, etc) as if the patient is in office.

If you have an immediate need, please call our office at 360-455-8014, and leave a message. We will be monitoring phone messages and addressing them as the develop.

Thank you, Linnea Comstock PT DPT, Owner Comstock
