Company History

Unified Therapy Services is a dream that the beginning foundations were put into place in January of 2005 when Gina Blean and Kelly Heysinger signed a commitment to the thoughts, ideas, and to their partnership. The opening day in Dubuque was April 3, 2006.

Our adult physical therapy practice also performs pre-employment screenings, incumbent evaluations, as well as; return to work/functional capacity evaluations (FCE's), and joint comparisons utilizing CRT's standardized isokinetic testing as part of Worker's Compensation & Industrial Rehabilitation.

We strongly believe in constant communication with the patient, employer, insurance case manager and physician. We strive to frequently educate those involved in patient care on each patient's current goals, progress and concerns to assist with our overall goals of returning your patients to their jobs and their prior level of function. Documentation is provided in a timely fashion prior to patient's appointments to your facility. We feel it is valuable in the care of your patients to let you know if our services are benefiting the patient or if another option is necessary.


We accommodate your patient's individual needs for scheduling and communication. Current hours of operation: M-Th 8am until 6 pm Fridays 8am to 3:00 pm, other times by appointment. We believe that no patient should have to wait to receive physical therapy and therefore we are able to see a patient within 24 hours. Consultation can happen in many forms based on your preference: phone call, email, fax etc.

Helping You

Our therapists two main goals with each patient are: 1.Reduce the inflammatory process and 2. Provide appropriate rehab to increase strength and endurance in a timely fashion. If we are not meeting our goals we will return your patients back to you for further follow up and alternative options. Our intentions are to help your patients and reduce your frustrations as a physician. We recognize the EEOC's rules, including the employer's job to identify injured joint or body part and requirement to return patient to pre-injury level for all workers compensation rehab. Patients, employers and physicians can be confident that continuity of care is a priority for both of our locations.UTS will continue to provide pre-authorizations and insurance verifications for all patients, and still accept a wide variety of health insurances.
