About to get started independently. I’m not quite sure how the communications with physicians is supposed to work. What steps do we follow to get this information if needed.
Does the personal trainer get the client to obtain the exercise guidelines in some written form from the physician? Or does the PT contact the Dr’s office on their own? If so, do you call or fax the info to them?
I have no idea what to expect when it comes to communicating with medical professionals or their staff. Any info on that will help.
I agree with the others. I have guidelines that I use that will tell me when a Physician’s Approval is required, and when that is the case, I give the form to my client to obtain the approval directly from his/her physician. Of course, the physician is ALWAYS welcomed to contact me directly if he/she has any questions or concerns about what their patient will be doing with me, but otherwise the communication is between my client and the physician.
