  • Collaborating with fellow Physical Therapist team members in patient care as appropriate and in professional growth
  • Conferring and collaborating with physicians, medical staff, and other members of interdisciplinary team on patient care issues as needed
  • Submitting bills to patients/insurance companies for services provided in accordance with established procedures and with support of Business Office staff, and rectifying billing issues with Business Office staff as needed
