What to Expect
At Dorval Physiotherapy and Wellness, you will receive the undivided attention of your physiotherapist for the entire duration of your assessment and treatment. We believe this approach optimizes our ability to provide a comprehensive assessment to get to the core of the issue. We are then able to develop a treatment and services plan that is highly focused and individualized.
Dorval Physiotherapy and Wellness includes primary care practitioners and does not require referral from a family physician. Anyone can refer themselves for treatment. However, if you wish to use your medical insurance to claim for treatment costs, some policies require your general practitioner to authorize this.
Appointments can be worked around your lifestyle, as we offer early morning, evenings and weekend appointments in addition to standard working hours, and we will do our upmost to accommodate you and your needs. We strive to be punctual at all times with your scheduled appointments. We can see you within 24 hours depending on your availability and the seriousness of your issue.
All of our assessment and treatment sessions are conducted on a one to one basis, and you are provided a private treatment room. You have the undivided attention for the full duration of the session.

At Your First Appointment
At your first appointment, we ask that you arrive five to ten minutes early in order to complete the registration form and terms and conditions. We allocate at least 45 minutes for your first appointment. It’s important that we take the time to listen to what you have to say about your condition and understand how it affects you.
We then carefully and thoroughly examine your areas of concern. We will discuss our findings with you and recommend a treatment plan to achieve your goals in the shortest possible time. You will also receive treatment to ensure you start feeling better from Day One. Follow up treatment sessions will last approximately 45 minutes.
We ask that you please bring any referral letters, medical records, x-rays, scans and any other medical information, including a list of current medications. As you will need to expose the areas of concern, we ask that you bring shorts for lower limb treatments. For women, please bring a camisole or sleeveless top for lower back, hip and knee treatments.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
To book an assessment for your motor vehicle accident injuries, please email or call us (905.399.7006). We may contact you if additional information is needed. Don’t worry about payment and paperwork. We will handle that on your behalf with your adjuster.
