    This is a Recommendation for the Physical Therapist that has been doing home visits for me since August 2020. In my case it helps a lot with pain relief for my spine/back/neck issues. He is willing and able (has a motor and a car) to cover a wide area, I am in Valencia. I waited this long to recommend him so I could be 1) sure he was effective and reliable, and 2) specifically to verify US Veterans that are VA Disability Rated will be reimbursed through FMP.

    Note for US Veterans with VA Rated Disability(ies) - With the Ortho Department at VA Manila being closed, they told me to be seen locally. I went to Silliman and got a referral from Orthopedics to Silliman Physical Therapy, they said they were not set up to do more than a specific are (like knee, shoulder, ect) and my whole spine was beyond their scope. So she gave me a referral to Ace who is a Licensed Physical Therapist. I started seeing him once a week and then increased to twice a week. FMP approved and reimbursed me for not only the Doctor Visits, but also every Therapy Visit that I submitted.

    Here is a bit of what he does, and his contact info:
    Neurological cases such as stroke, parkinson's disease, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, to musculoskeletal cases such as back pain, fractures, sprains, joint pain. Also catering to geriatric (old) patients and pediatric (children) patients. Can also do general fitness screening and sports conditioning.

    (he is a Filipino with excellent English)

    Steve, great post and very informative. Maybe @Notmyrealname could add this to his medical listing for future reference? Thanks to both of you.

    I have now posted it in that thread - one day I will re-do the whole list using the accumulated wisdom of members here.

    Cool, ya this was really a two part recommendation.
    1) for anyone that is interested/needs a Good Physical Therapist that does home visits so you don't have to deal with travel.

    2) (a big deal from my perspective) for US Vets using the FMP program verifying I have received my reimbursement check from FMP. No issues (other than the normal waiting forever), I submitted, waited, and received approval/check. Simple
