Avant-Garde Physical Therapy has started practicing in a unique designed studio space. The Midtown location is a one-on-one setting, where only the patient and the therapist occupy it during the session. We are dedicated to the safety of our patients during this time of COVID-19, and these are our latest procedures during treatments: no receptionists, assistants, techs, and a full sterilization of the practice between each appointment. Additionally we use sterile one-time use of gloves, masks and scrubs. These steps are key in creating a safe treatment environment for you during this unprecedented time.
During this time where social distancing is key to our continued success in controlling the COVID-19 pandemic, telehealth is an effective way to receive physical therapy. Avant-Garde has the equipment, skills, and experience to best perform physical therapy through our tried and tested telehealth sessions. We ensure that you will receive the most effective treatment available to you with our expert trained therapists. Patients who are in need of our help and have moved temporarily or permanently out of the New York City area, can greatly benefit from this additional service we now offer.
