About ReNew Concierge PT
Meet the Physical Therapy Doctors who bring healing to your door in Pensacola, Destin and Fort Walton Beach, Florida.
Meet ReNew’s Physical Therapy Doctors
Our team of doctors bring physical therapy to you at home, work or the gym. You don’t need a doctor’s referral to set up an evaluation or begin treatment. All you have to do is book an appointment with us! After an initial evaluation, we will diagnose your specific pain syndrome or movement dysfunction, and your ReNew doctor will set up a one-on-one treatment plan for you. Keep reading to hear our story and meet the Doctors of Physical Therapy on our team.
ReNew: Concierge Physical Therapy was born out of Dr. Harvitz’s love for patients and belief that you deserve a higher level of care. Working in big medical practices for ten years, he saw how many PT clinics cut corners or compromised care to meet insurance companies’ demands. He wanted to offer patients in Pensacola, Fort Walton Beach and Destin, Florida an alternative–a physical therapy practice that comes to your home and puts you first.
Since founding ReNew, Dr. Harvitz and his team have helped hundreds of patients get free from pain, regain mobility, and avoid surgeries. ReNew is completely self-pay. The only insurance we accept is personal injury protection (PIP) insurance. This allows us to do what’s best for you instead of letting an insurance company dictate your care. Through our unique approach to treatment, our patients discover the freedom that comes from personalized physical therapy. Freedom to heal. Freedom to perform. Freedom from pain.
