BetterPT online physical therapy providers are now featured on CareDash, the fastest-growing healthcare search and review site in the U.S. BetterPT is a New York-based startup that supports telehealth and provides appointment scheduling and digital solutions for physical therapy practices and groups.

Additionally, BetterPT client profiles on CareDash are now updated with appointment scheduling tools, telehealth provider status, and detailed practice info.
