I’ve been been to several physical therapy facilities over the years, including Stanford and PAMF. California Rehab is hands down the best. On top of this, Lori is in particular is the best PT who has worked with me. She is knowledgeable and caring and a true healer. (I have high confidence the others there are just as good, but Lori was assigned to me.) On the business side rates are very reasonable and insurance is easy to deal with.

I visited the California Rehabilitation and Sports Therapy center in Palo Alto to get treatment for my shoulder pain. When I first arrived, I was greeted by the front desk staff who were very professional and helpful. Later on, I met with Massimo, my physical therapist, who performed an in-depth initial evaluation and explained my diagnosis to me. He provided me with a step-by-step plan to address my condition and work towards a solution. Overall, I was impressed with the level of care and attention I received at the facility.

Life sends people in our lives that we oftentimes wonder how we made it without them!! That is exactly how I feel about my physical therapist, Lori Fong. She is very versed in her knowledge of the discipline seeking to enhance it at any opportunity! She is kind and considerate. She is thorough and seeks to find the best way to treat you. Kudos and special thanks to Lori Fong at California Rehabilitation!!

I was a patient/client in 2016 and 2017 when this location was part of ATI for two rounds of shoulder rehab due to two sports injuries. I had good experiences with Nodair, Ron, and one other physical therapist. In 2023, I returned after suffering a concussion and being diagnosed with post-concussion syndrome (PCS). I experienced a vestibular system-related symptom so I sought care. The recommended places from the neurology department of my PCP's health care system were all booked out a month or more. I called Cal Rehab to see if they provided vestibular care. They said yes, and I was able to get in the next week to work with Lori Fong. Initially, the care was good. After about a month, issues with care started to emerge: 1. I could not get Lori to commit to creating a plan of care, which the APTA, a professional association for physical therapy, discusses in its standards of care document, that is well communicated. When I realized there was a gap in communication of my plan of care, I made out a list of exercises and asked Lori if she could review them. She said she would and stated that the mobile app system Cal Rehab uses for communicating plans of care doesn't have all of the exercises she has given me. That fine. Just mark up the printed list I gave you. She would then tell me she would do when I was a future appointments. Eventually, I asked her again if she could review the list. She told me with irritation in her voice that she did not have time for that, but softened and said that she couldn't do it right now. At another appointment, she freely told me that she didn't review the plan of care because she was on vacation over the weekend. I totally understand that people need time away from work. Though, your work should allow you to do the basic things that provide good care and are considered a standard of care. Lori seemed to want to compensate for not reviewing the list by telling me, "Just focus on the most recent exercises" and "It's a progression." Asking more questions later uncovered, not surprisingly, that my plan of care in her head had multiple series of exercise progressions and foundational exercises that should be done throughout. A patient or client figuring out what should be in their care plan is not a hallmark of good care. This has gone one for four weeks. I have escalated this to her manager Kurt to see if he can resolve this basic part of physical therapy care. This is by far the most significant issue with care at Cal Rehab. 2. Part of my care is to work through exercise intolerance due to the PCS. This was done using a stationary bicycle. I found it hard to get Lori to engage and, after she did start to engage, to do this regularly on assessing how I am doing. I essentially did this on my own. 3. She pushed NSAIDs for my PCS headaches. She said she wasn't prescribing me to do this. Later she suggested that I take 200 mg of ibuprofen daily as a possibly preventative to headaches. NSAIDs are well documented as contributing to rebound headaches if used more than 50% of a week. UCSF Neurology has cautioned me about NSAID overuse. Online information from the Cleveland Clinic and the Mayo Clinic also caution NSAID overuse to the rebound headache possibility. PTs are not licensed in California to prescribe medications. 4. During one appointment Lori shared medical information about a patient that she was working with at the same time as my appointment and at the table next to the table I was laying on. She shared that this patient had a closed head injury and now an open head injury. This seem at least inappropriate and may be a privacy violation - possibly violating HIPPA. 5. I also had billing issues. Mine was resolved quickly. Lori told me in passing that she forgot to close out her notes for two appointments. Overall, I don't think I received good care and the stress of the above is hard on someone with PCS. I don't plan to return to this Cal Rehab location and don't recommend it anymore.

Commonly Asked Questions & What to Expect During Your PT Treatment

Do I need to see a doctor first?

Thanks to direct access, we can see any patient without a referral from a doctor for an initial evaluation. If our therapists believe that physical therapy is a good option for your needs, we can work with you and your physician to obtain a prescription for continued care. If your diagnosis requires additional expertise, we can also refer you to a specialist to handle your care.

What do I need to bring to my first visit?

For your first visit, be sure to bring the following items:

  • Prescription for physical therapy from your referring physician (if applicable)
  • Government issued photo ID (such as a driver’s license)
  • Insurance card(s)
  • Patient forms, which can be downloaded from this site in PDF format. Print and fill out the forms completely and bring them during your first visit.
  • Patients who are minors (under 18 years of age) must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for their first visit.

What should I wear to physical therapy?

Please wear or bring comfortable athletic/workout clothing to change into. This includes shorts or sweatpants, a t-shirt and sneakers. Your attire should also allow easy access to your injured area for treatment by your physical therapist.

What can I expect during my first visit?

During your first visit, your therapist will perform a thorough examination, in which he or she will review your physician’s recommendations, examine the problem area, ask questions about your injury or pain, develop an effective treatment plan for rehabilitation, discuss their findings with you and answer any questions you may have. Your treatment plan may include hands-on, manual therapy, a customized exercise program, stretching and physical agents such as heat, ice, ultrasound and electrical stimulation. Your physical therapist may also recommend a home program to further assist in your treatment.

How long will my appointment take?

Your first appointment will typically last from 45 minutes to an hour and a half, depending on your injury. Following appointments usually last between 30 minutes and an hour, depending on the treatment. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of your appointment for check-in and paperwork. You can also download our patient forms, which can be filled out beforehand and brought with to your appointment.

How often will I need to come?

The frequency of your treatment will depend on your physician’s prescription and the plan of care developed by your physical therapist. Most patients require treatment two to three times per week. The duration of treatment will depend on your injury and personal progress. Your physical therapist will discuss this with you following your initial exam and subsequently as you progress.

What if I need to cancel an appointment?

If you are unable to attend an appointment, we require at least 24 hours' notice. However, we do understand than an occasional emergency or illness may arise, in which case you may have to cancel your appointment closer to your scheduled time.

Do you accept insurances? Will insurance cover my therapy?

We accept most major insurances including Medicare, Tricare and workers’ compensation plans. Before your initial visit, we will verify in and out of network benefits with your insurance company. The cost of therapy is determined by the benefits of your insurance plan, including the deductible and co-pay, or patient percentage. We are happy to check with your insurance company to determine the terms of your coverage. Payment for patient responsibility is due at the time of service.

Do you offer complimentary consultations?

We are proud to offer complimentary injury screenings with one of our certified licensed specialists who will discuss your area of discomfort and offer suggestions for next steps in care, if appropriate. For your convenience, consultations will last no longer than 15 minutes and are available over the phone or in person. To request a complimentary screening, after entering your ZIP code in the location look up, simply select 'Free Consultation' and proceed to fill out your information.
