What time do you have to work? Is it a strict 9 - 5 job? Or is it flexible timings?

If it is flexible timings, then it is lot better. I try to keep my therapy appt at 9 in the morning, so I can get to office right after it. Can you try to switch your therapy to mornings? Or during lunch hours?

Also if you are absent only for a few hours in a month - I don't think anyone would question you too much. You can say, I need some regular Dr check ups. Mostly nowadays, they evaluate you on how much you produce and not on when you work or how many hours you put in the office. So as long as you are able to compensate for the lacking hours by working late/coming early - I think that might be ok. But it depends on the kind of work you do.

Anyway, I wouldn't try to say everything in the new place as soon as you start. If need be, skip a few therapy sessions or so in the first 1 month and assess the work environment. And then you will have a better picture.
