BIO - About Melanie

I graduated from Wayne State University with my Master’s Degree in 2002 and have worked with all diagnoses in various settings including brain injury facilities, sports medicine clinics and hospital-based rehabilitation. I have worked with everyone from the geriatric population, weekend warriors and professional athletes. Over the years I have seen how healthcare has changed. Insurance companies are covering less treatments and dictating how therapists treat their patients. They are reimbursing less and forcing therapists to see two to three patients at a time. I am looking to change the way people receive therapy by taking insurance companies out of picture. Being cash based means I can see you one on one the entire time without interruption getting to the root of the problem quicker. That being said there are regulations when it comes to treating people with traditional Medicare plans so please make us aware if you are covered by Medicare, this will not change your treatment at all!

If you are covered under your insurance, we can provide you with a copy of your invoice/receipt with codes to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.

*In Michigan our direct access laws allow me to treat each condition without a physician prescription for 10 visits or 21 days (whichever comes first). This does not pertain to wellness or maintenance visits which are unlimited. If we are making progress but not quite where you would like to be after the direct access period we can contact your physician at that time to obtain a prescription.
