Do I need a referral? Does insurance cover this? Do you accept my insurance? 

Most insurance companies require a doctor’s referral for reimbursement. Private pay does not require a referral, although I prefer to have one. Just call or make an appointment at your doctor’s office and let them know what your symptoms are. Once they fax a referral to my office, I will contact you. Contact your insurance if you would like to confirm and please see list of accepted insurance.

What can I expect? How long are the sessions normally? 

 

If you have a pelvic floor issue you can expect to have a an internal vaginal assessment and an EMG assessment in the first visit. I do conduct a very thorough history taking that will take about 15 minutes there is also some education about another 15 minutes the internal assessment usually takes about 10 minutes and the EMG assessment takes about 10 to 15 minutes. Sessions are usually one hour long

What should I wear? 

You should wear something that you can comfortably move around in. 

How often will I be coming in? 

Most patients come in once a week. 

Since childbirth, I have trouble rolling over in bed, getting in and out of the car and standing to get dressed and pain with taking steps. Can you help me with this? 

Do you do internal vaginal treatment? 

Yes.  I also do biofeedback studies that help us diagnose and correctly treat your pelvic floor. As far as the pelvis goes, this is the most specialized treatment you can get in Hawaii.
