Meet Dr. Sameep Contractor
PT, DPT, CFN, SSN
I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy, a Certified Fitness/Personal Trainer and a Specialist in Sports Nutrition. Those are just degrees that I have. What I am is a caring, passionate, and energetic health professional that wants to help you achieve the best and highest
level of overall health possible. I use these tools to help improve
your health and wellness so you can live the ideal life that you
want to live, to do the things that you love to do.
I am so excited to help you reach your goals! I have been a
physical therapist for 19 years, mostly in and around the Houston area. I started out doing travel therapy so I have worked in NYC, Dallas, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Baton Rouge. I have
worked in almost every setting, from outpatient to skilled rehab, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and for the past 7 years,
home health. I love playing sports and working out myself. I
cannot wait to help you transform your life so you can get back to doing the things you want. I wholeheartedly believe that life is happiest when you do what you enjoy, whatever that might be for you. If you want to be stronger, if you want to improve your
balance, if you want to be pain free or if you just want better
overall health, that’s what I specialize in. If you have had an injury,
are pre or post surgery, had a fall or “close call”, if you have had a stroke or heart attack, whether it’s pain, debility or just want to be healthier, I want to help you get back do doing what you love to
do in life!
Dr. Contractor initially came to see my dad who had become weaker, was having a hard time walking and moving around the house. I could see my dad getting frustrated day by day. He was reluctant initially to do any exercise. After a couple of visits he noticed himself improving and after two weeks he couldn’t wait for Dr. Contractor to come again. His whole attitude changed and he looked forward to exercising. After a few weeks, Dr. Contractor started seeing both my parents. They plan their schedule around Dr. Contractor‘s visits. They both go for daily walks in the evening now. I love it! Thanks Dr. Contractor for your great attitude and helping both my parents.

Who are my patients?
My patients are generally seniors who place importance on their health and wellness. They understand the value of one on one personalized care. I work with individuals who want to achieve their goals and participate in their own healing process. I love to motivate people who want to improve their strength and/or balance, avoid falls and decrease pain. My clients usually want to avoid surgery or have had surgery and want to recover to even better than their pre-surgery abilities. I see patients who want to remain in their home and not move to assisted living. People I work with share my belief that just pills and drugs are not the way to achieve their highest level of physical health.

Education & Individualized Exercise Programming Specific for You.
Does Karma Rehab take insurance/medicare?I am a cash based mobile practice and am not an In-Network Provider. However, you might still be eligible for reimbursement via out of network benefits. Almost all insurance companies have slowly been increasing deductibles for their patients while at the same time decreasing provider reimbursements. They are also trying to dictate what treatments are allowed for patients. Not going through insurance allows me to focus on you one on one for a full hour without restrictions. You’ll see why below. Example: let’s say your deductible is $5,000 and each session at strip mall physical therapy is $150 until the deductible is met. If they see you 3x per week for 8 weeks, that’s $3,600. Now logically this $3,600 all goes towards that $5,000 deductible right, NOPE. Many insurance companies only apply a percentage of that amount towards the deductible. How much percentage? It’s their discretion. In the end you are paying more to spend less time with the therapist (again, more on this below) and more time at the strip mall. I believe that insurance/medicare should not be dictating how you are treated or how often. I strongly believe that you deserve time and individualized care to reach your specific goals. Your health is an investment into avoiding piles of future medical bills and staying as independent and active as you can. HEALTH IS WEALTH
Difference between Karma Rehab and most outpatient clinics in the strip mall down the street?You and your goals are my sole focus for a full hour. If you went to strip mall therapy you don’t get that. Because they are in-network with your insurance, their 1 therapist needs to see at least 4 patient every hour. That means you get about 15 mins of one on one time with that busy therapist. With most outpatient clinics you are cattle churned through the revolving door. It's not their fault, that’s the only way they can keep their doors open. I get to spend more time with you each session so you will progress faster and more importantly be better quicker. It will take me less visits to get your desired results. This saves you money in the long run while giving you more time to do what you love. Also, you frequently don’t get the same therapist at strip mall PT so continuity isn’t always that good. You get me every time. After speaking with you, if outpatient is the best therapy for you, i will recommend it and help you find the best place close to you. I can be a supplement to outpatient therapy to help you achieve your goals faster, in your desired environment(home, work, gym, etc).
Difference between Karma Rehab and home health therapy?In order to receive home health therapy, Medicare requires you to be homebound. This means the you can only leave your home with assistance of another person or assistive device and to certain places only. You don’t have to be homebound for me to help you. Also, you are restricted to a certain number of visits before you will be discharged, whether you are better or not. You ability or if you have reached your goals or not does not discharge you. In 2020 Medicare changed to a PDGM system. For you that means less overall visits. Less time with the therapist, less number of visits and limited freedom. You do not need to be homebound for me to work with you. In fact, that's the point, I don't want you to be homebound. I want you to go and live your life! I believe home health therapy is very important and if you are appropriate for that type of therapy i want you to continue to get it as long as you can. I will recommend home health companies to you. I can be a supplement to that so you can reach and surpass your goals faster.
What do you need to do so you can be your healthiest self?If it is physical therapy you need then we will require doctors orders. The state of Texas at this time is still a partially direct access state so you will need MD orders but ONLY for physical therapy services, not for wellness/fitness services or nutrition. I can evaluate and treat you a few visits without MD orders but it will be required shortly after Initial Evaluation. I can help you with that also. If you have out of network benefits, I will give you the required document you will need to submit to your insurance. The amount your insurance company might reimburse you depends on the plan you have. For wellness/fitness services you do not need MD orders. I will help you figure out whats right for you at the Initial Evaluation. You can also use your HSA account to pay for these services.
Can I submit Medicare claims?Simple easy answer is NO. Karma Rehab is NOT affiliated with Medicare. I can only treat you if you will NOT be submitting claims to Medicare. This decision MUST come from you and be made by the patient’s own free will. So you need to tell me that you are not wanting to submit claims for reimbursement to medicare. This is for physical therapy only and does not apply to wellness/fitness and nutrition visits.
What are the advantages to healthare coming to you?There are many. First and most important is that you get to spend more 1 on 1 time with your experienced medical professional. Next, it about your schedule and you choose the location. Also, privacy. You don’t have to sit in waiting rooms. You already have plenty to do, don’t need to add driving and getting stuck in traffic to the list. There are no distractions, I focus on getting you better via a personalized specific program, custom made for you. I come to your home, office, gym, etc. I’ve met clients at pools, parks and courts for treatment. Convenience. I fit into your schedule. Priority. I put you first. Last and certainly not least, the quality of care you will receive is second to none.
Why do I believe everyone must do some form of resistance training?Exercise isn’t just medicine, it’s the best medicine. This is true for prevention and for recovery. In my opinion, every single person needs some form of daily exercise. The selection of which exercises, quantity, progression, and modifications is specific for each person. And that also changes as one progresses and improves their health. That's why I am here. Resistance training doesn’t mean lifting big heavy weights. Resistance training is beneficial not only for your muscles but also to your bones, joints, cardiovascular system, lymphatic system and mood. As an added bonus, it also burns extra calories.
Speaking of calories, let's talk about nutrition. Why do I believe everyone must improve their eating habits, some more than others?"A diet is temporary, nutrition is a habit. The only way your body can work optimally is if it is given the proper nutrients to work. Too little of one nutrient or too much of another and the efficiency decreases. How many calories to eat? What foods to eat to best fuel you and keep you healthy? I can help you with your nutritional needs also. I can help you make healthier choices of what foods you choose to eat.
