Poor experience. The aide can't show up on time, not once but twice.One of the PT threatens to mark you down as a missed appointment if she cant get to see you the following day from when she called the night before at almost 730pm. Very unprofessional. I will not recommend this company to no one. Doesn't even deserve half a star.

I am currently a patient through them and ran into a little problem. My CNA is fantastic it was my PT I had a little problem with. The day I found out i was being discharged never got a phone call telling me this or that my two cancellations were going to be a problem ( both were because I was too sick to get out of bed). Communication needs improvement and if you are going to be late, please call and let the patient know so they don't sit there waiting.

After a severe Multiple Sclerosis relapse that left me almost paralyzed, I spent five days in a hospital, four weeks in a rehab hospital in Las Cruces, and was released once I was able to stand and walk, with orders for home care. I was given the option of either Access or another facility and chose Access, which turned out to be a mistake. As a result of what happened, I have to go to Las Cruces and get re-evaluated by my Neurologist so I can resume home care with another company. I will say that I had impeccable care from my CNA, occupational therapist, and my FIRST physical therapy assistant. These people clearly chose their careers out of passion and compassion for others. Your experience may not be the same, and I hope it' not. but I will give you advice so you don't go through what I did. After 2 months with my first physical therapy asst., I got a new PTA when he relocated, and things plummeted from there. I will not go into the chain of events that took place with my new phys. therapy assistant. I will share what I learned and say that you MUST be diligent in ensuring you are receiving the therapy you need and you are not abruptly released from care. 1. Ask your insurance company how long each session they are billed for should last. If it's an hour, be sure you get the hour. Personally, I am okay with at least 40-45 minutes. Fifteen to 30 minutes is unacceptable. 2. Check the date and time on the sheet you will be asked to sign. Do not sign if it is blank or if you did not get the time your insurance will be billed for. Complain if your sessions are not adequate. 3. Ask how long your therapy is anticipated to take (six weeks, three months, etc.), so you are not blind-sided with a sudden discharge. 4. If you must complain, tell whomever you speak with that you want a follow-up call with what happened and what the resolution will be. Likewise, establish open communication with your therapists so that if your PTA thinks you are "non-compliant", it will be addressed with you and not used as a reason to release you. 5. If you are dissatisfied, you have the right to change care providers. If you choose this facility, I hope your experience is better than mine.
