Frequently Asked. Clear answers.
Do you accept insurance?
Core Elements is an Out-of-Network Provider. Payment is due at the time of service. I will provide you with a "super-bill" that you can submit to your insurance company for out-of-network benefits. Out-of-network benefits are determined by your individual insurance plan.
Do I need a prescription to make an appointment and start PT?
Feel free to bring your prescription along with you if you do have one. You don’t actually need it, in Virginia you can see a PT without a prescription because of Direct Access.

What should I expect at my first session?
Your Evaluation and each treatment will always be one on one with me, Dr. Rachel. I provide a comfortable, quiet, and safe place knowing pelvic health is personal and emotional. My job is to hear your story, your concerns, and then assess through an evaluation how to help you return to the life you want.
Should I keep my appointment if I am menstruating?
Yes, please keep your appointment. There are other complementary and important components of your care such as; external treatment, neuromuscular reeducation, movement patterns, and educational aspects. We will have plenty else to stay busy with!
What are your COVID policies and are you seeing patients in the clinic?
Patients are able to schedule online for both in person and virtual sessions. In person sessions are one on one with Dr. Aronson following CDC Guidelines. Masks are required and all touch surfaces are wiped down between patients. There is a 20 minute gap between patients in order to ensure distancing and the above sanitizing procedures are completed. Patients do have the option of booking VIRTUAL Sessions.
How do I know if I should book with you?
Hesitant to book? Consider booking a free 20 minute Virtual Discovery Session. I offer these for those who are on the fence about starting care and are maybe not sure if the concern you have is the “right” thing to come in for. This is an opportunity for us to chat and “meet” and help you get a better understanding of what will work best for you.
