Telehealth at N2 Physical Therapy
What our patients are saying about Telehealth at N2 Physical Therapy:
I have just finished my first Telehealth appointment with Hollie at N2PT and I feel that this service online is fabulous. I was able to discuss my issues from the comfort of my home and Hollie was able to assess the exercises she was giving me while I was doing them on my mat. The interaction worked just like being in her office and she was able to teach me new methods and adjust the way I was currently exercising. This was a terrific way of keeping myself healthy and using physical therapy to keep me safely exercising. I am very thankful to N2 PT for keeping their virtual doors open during this stressful time. I do not have to interrupt the PT I have been doing and can continue to heal. Thank you, N2PT!
Thanks to Hollie and N2's Telehealth program as an option to case review, we were able to discuss my progress, goals, and needs comfortably on a telehealth call. This allowed me a more comfortable and confidential space to make sure that N2 as a practice was addressing my medical needs. I have had to switch PTs several times, and during this process felt like I had gotten lost in the system and my progress was delayed in the various transitions. I feel good going forward with N2 as my team that I have this space to make sure we are all on the same page with my health, and knowing that my concerns were listened to and heard. I definitely recommend this for someone feeling they need another opinion, or wanting to expand their treatment and learn more about other approaches to improve their health and symptoms.

As an existing client, Telehealth has been invaluable to keeping up with Hollie and my physical health needs. We are able to discuss symptoms and update therapy/exercise plans as needed without having to leave the house. I know I can reach out and set up an appointment as needed and I take huge comfort in that.
