Why WMPT is the Right Choice

Selecting the right health care Practitioner is a big decision. We’re glad you chose us and want to let you know that you made the right choice.

 

Dedicated to your health

WMPT is part of a group of dedicated individual who own their own practices. They have passes strict credentialing guidelines to belong to an organization call PTPN. WMPT is the only practice in Berkshire County to be accepted into PTPN (the largest specialty network in the United States). Providing therapy is not just a job to us- it’s our profession, our career and our passion. We have our name on the door and our reputation on the line when we provide our patients with therapy services. We deliver the best rehab care you can get.

 

That's not just an opinion

Studies have shown that therapists in private practice deliver better quality care, more cost effectively, then therapy provided in other settings. A study in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that patients in non PT owned clinics need 39% to 45% more visits than patients treated by private practitioners. In addition the charges per patient were 30% to 40% higher.
