"Physical therapy is not a subspecialty of the medical profession and physical therapists are not medical doctors; we are a separate profession that provides a unique service that physicians are unable and untrained to provide."

Florida Network of Private Practice Physical Therapist Attracts 81 to Orlando Seminar

By all accounts, the First Annual Florida Physical Therapists in Private Practice (FLPTPP) seminar in Orlando was a raging success.

We attracted 81 private practice physical therapists and their office managers to learn about the impact of Medicare Accountable Care Organizations (ACO) on PT private practice.

Our initial projections were 30-40 attendees. Needless to say, the hard work and dedicated effort by the members of the FLPTPP Board of Directors blew those numbers out of the water.

You can see the slideshow of my presentation at the FLPTPP web site.

An active discussion page on the Florida PTPP Facebook page demonstrates with testimonials from enthusiastic physical therapists on the power of networking by member physical therapists.

Stay tuned for updates to the FLPTPP web site for upcoming events.

The expert presenters at this latest seminar included the following:
Our experts have pledged to collaborate with the FLPTPP to provide knowledge sharing in the form of Frequently Asked Questions available to members of the FLPTPP.
