What is Marque Virtual PT?

Marque Virtual PT is covered by insurance and is your first stop when you need to get back to optimal health and movement. Led by Dr. Matthew Szkalak, DPT, and Brad Campbell, PTA, Marque Physical Therapy has been a leader in the field for years, with thousands  of patient served. Patients have come to depend on our quality services, and we want our community to know that we are open during these challenging times. You can now see the same Marque Physical Therapists on our new virtual platform for existing and new patients. You choose on how you want to receive your care – either at our physical locations or at your home. Whatever is convenient for you.
We’ve been practicing virtual consultations for years and we are experts in this area of care delivery. Our virtual services are being offer to new and existing patients with any of the following aliments:

What can I expect from a Marque Virtual PT exam?

For existing patients, we will continue to follow and modify your current care plan depending on your progression. For all new patients, you will be given a detailed plan from Dr Matthew Szkalak, PT DPT after your initial consult. Your plan will be detailed and may include:
  • Pain/inflammation management techniques
  • Activity modifications
  • Personalized home stretching/exercise routines
Your road to recovery will be jointly administered by our physical therapy team, who will follow the treatment plan with you weekly until you are recovered.
If you need to be seen by a Marque Medical Doctor during your recovery for any reason, you will have access to our doctors on the same virtual platform in the convenience of your home. Our doctors will have access to your medical chart so that they can properly evaluate and support your recovery.

How can I do PT from my house?

You will have a live video feed with our physical therapist throughout your entire session. It’s as if we are right next to you every step of the way. Our approach is highly engaging and supportive, so that you get the most from your visit. We have performed thousands of virtual PT consultations and patients often comment on the convenience and thoroughness of our service. All you need is a laptop or computer with a camera, or even a mobile device with a camera. Wear clothes that you can comfortably move in for the session. We will send you a checklist of things to prepare both before and after the session once your appointment has been made.
