Why Choose Southwest Family Physical Therapy?

More Than Just Another Physical Therapy Clinic in Mesa

So why do we think you should choose Southwest Family Physical Therapy? Granted, our answer may seem bias, but we believe even from an objective perspective these reasons are important when choosing a physical therapy clinic (even if you don’t choose us):

Reliable and Reputable

You think it would be safe to assume that all physical therapists in Arizona are actually licensed, but it is always wise to be sure and search the State of Arizona Professional Licensure lookup website. Dr. Evan Short is licensed and in good standing with the Arizona State Board of Physical Therapy (License #LPT-011733). Also, online reviews and patient testimonials are another great indicator for reliability and reputation. Southwest Family Physical Therapy is proud of our 60+ ALL 5-star Google reviews which can be seen online live here.

Comprehensive Care Under One Roof

Southwest Family Physical Therapy is part of our Southwest Family Medical family, and therefore is able to provide a wider range of healthcare services than some other clinics. Dr. Evan Short, and you, are supported by a whole team of other healthcare experts like MDs, PAs, chiropractors, pain management doctors, and even an urgent care team.

This means that if you require any additional medical care or support during your physical therapy journey, we have the resources and expertise right here onsite. Our integrated approach to healthcare ensures that you receive the best possible care, from a wide and diverse range of expertise, and tailored to your individual needs.

Did we mention we also have onsite x-rays, blood draws, labs, and even IV therapies?

State-of-the-Art Technology

We use the latest medical technology to support our physical therapy treatments, including cutting-edge equipment and techniques that are designed to help you achieve your best possible outcomes. As mentioned above we have onsite x-rays, blood draws, labs, and IV therapy.

Insurance and Payment Options

We accept most insurance plans and offer flexible payment options to make it easy for you to receive the care you need. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is here to help you understand your insurance and payment options, so you can focus on your recovery. Did someone say affordable self-pay rates? Yes. Our self-pay rates are very competitive and we work with our patients to ensure they get the care they need.

See our insurance plans (even if you don’t see yours on here, call us to double check).

Patient-Centered Approach

It sounds cliche, but at Southwest Family Physical Therapy, we truly believe that you are our most important patient and the most important part of your treatment plan. We work closely with you to understand your goals and develop a customized treatment plan that is tailored to your unique needs and circumstances. Combined with the years of experience of Dr. Evan Short, our passion to help all patients live their best lives, and a network of resources and other medical expertise onsite, you are sure to get the best possible treatment available in Arizona.
