Start Your Recovery


When I took over Golden Gate Physical Therapy in 2004, I envisioned a clinic with a sense of ohana, which means family in Hawaiian. I believe every patient should be treated like they are a part of our family, and this is the welcoming spirit that guides our patient care every day. Your health and well-being are important to us and we want to give you the careful, personalized attention you deserve. Adrian Carvalho, Physical TherapistWe are proud to be the exception among San Francisco physical therapy clinics, devoting professional attention to every patient at every visit. Read about our higher standard of care and our promise to you.

Although it may take 30-60 days to receive a bill for your deductible, all co-pays are expected at the time service or treatment is provided.

Billing and Insurance Claims

As a courtesy to our patients, Golden Gate Physical therapy will only file claims with patients’ PRIMARY insurance company for services rendered and help patients get direct payments from the insurance company. We do not bill secondary or tertiary insurance but will provide documents for patients to submit. Ultimately, patients are responsible for their charges.

Billing Procedure

The first step in this process is making your initial evaluation appointments which will last 45 minutes with one of our physical therapists. Once your appointment is scheduled and your insurance information has been provided we will verify your benefits with your insurance company. Our billing process is as follows:

    1. We send your visit charge per session, which is determined by your therapist to your insurance
    2. We receive explanation of benefits in 30-45 days from your insurance company
    3. After claims are processed by your insurance, you will receive a bill from GGPT for all balances due
