Physiatry (rehabilitation medicine)
The group will meet Wednesdays from October 7 through November 25 from 10:30am until 12pm through Google Meet. Invitations to the online sessions will be sent by email once registration is complete.
If insurance does not cover group participation, potential group members can apply for the NLCC Sliding Fee Scale.
Participants in this group do NOT need to have a primary medical provider within NorthLakes. Their primary medical provider will be notified of their participation in the group to foster more coordinated care, so participants will need to sign an authorization to release information to their primary medical provider. Potential participants can self refer to this group by calling 888.834.4551 and requesting to speak with Tamilyn White in behavioral health. Medical, behavioral health and providers in other disciplines can also refer into this group by sending a message through Epic.
