You won’t need a doctor’s note to visit the Burger Physical Therapy open house.

The local clinic will open its doors to the public from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 17, at its new home at 2035 Lyndell Terrace, Suite 200, in West Davis.

Attendees will have the opportunity to speak to Neil Hershberger, the director of Burger Physical Therapy, and founder Carol Burger, as well as tour the new clinic. Representatives of the Davis Chamber of Commerce will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 6:30 p.m.

Since moving to its new location near Sutter Davis Hospital, the clinic has made several additions, including new equipment as well as new services such as hand therapy and a designated gym. Business development director Eric Burger described Burger Physical Therapy as “innovative in that it is truly paperless” with its record-keeping. He added that the company is always looking to improve and revise its delivery method and provide modern facilities.

“The Davis clinic is one of the busiest clinics owned by Burger Physical Therapy,” Burger said.

Thirteen different services are offered to clients and are administered by a staff of physical therapists with master’s degrees and Ph.Ds.

Though clients generally need a doctor’s referral before visiting Burger Physical Therapy, this facility also occasionally opens its doors to privately referred clients. The open house provides an opportunity for all who are interested to visit the new clinic.

Now in its 35th year, Burger Physical Therapy started in Folsom as an outpatient center for nursing services. It has since grown to host more than 400 employees across 12 clinics in the greater Sacramento area and two additional clinics in the Central Valley.
