Scheduling with AIRE
Meg Frens, MS, AT, ATC - Owner, AIRE Athletic Training
Emails and phone calls will be returned within 24-48 hours - thank you!
Scheduling with Meg can be done after a referral is obtained by a physician familiar with your pain. This can be an MD or DO and be either your primary care physician or a specialist you have seen recently for your injury/condition who can issue this referral, most of the time without being seen as they understand your previous condition. A referral to use with your physician can be found below as well as on the "New Patient Forms" page, however most offices issue the referrals from their in-office referrals department and send it to the fax number provided above. The referral ensures I’m working within the requirements of my state practice act as an athletic trainer functioning in a private setting as well as ensuring quality care for your condition/injury.
Appointments are scheduled during most days of the week, with appointments during the day, and evenings as necessary. Clients will be reminded of their appointment by either email or text unless a preferred method of communication is specified by the client. You may cancel your session by giving 24 hours’ notice on the prior business day. Otherwise, you’ll be charged for the missed session via invoice from AIRE, due upon receipt. For example, if your session is scheduled for Monday at 9:00a.m., you must cancel by Friday at 9:00 a.m. Please understand your time is valuable to both of us and also to others who may be waiting for an appointment during the week.
Your initial appointment will be between 60-90 minutes and follow up appointments available in either 30 or 60 min increments. I DO NOT participate with any insurance and my business is out-of-network, self-pay. In some instances you may be able to send your insurance company an itemized receipt, but I cannot guarantee you will be reimbursed. A fee schedule will be discussed with you when we are scheduling your appointment.
Please dress in comfortable clothing and shoes you are able to be active in and to perform exercises in the gym. Various forms of exercise, movement and stretching will be used along with manual techniques and treatments during our time together. Please be ready for anything that might be helpful for you! We have large changing areas/bathrooms and showers available for use before and after your appointment.
I love answering your questions about what is available through AIRE to help you with your pain condition. Please call or email me to start this conversation!
