Q. How long will the First Visit take?
A. Approximately 30 minutes to one hour, this includes completing any initial paperwork, an examination by the doctor, and treatment.
   
 
Q. Will I be treated on my First Visit?
A. Treatment is normally initiated immediately following the examination. At times, x-rays or other imaging may be ordered to further visualize anatomy and enhance decision making.
   
 
Q. How do I prepare for the First Visit?
A. Visits to our clinic normally require no special preparation. Wearing comfortable clothes is suggested.
   
 
Q. What does the First Visit consist of?
A.
Upon arriving at the clinic, you will most likely need to fill out paperwork for the doctor and your insurance company. Have your insurance card ready, if you are using health insurance. We will verify insurance coverage, if required. Any co-pays will be due at this time. After the paperwork is completed and any co-pay collected, you will be examined by the doctor. After examination, there will be time to discuss your condition and treatment plan, and normally begin with treatment. If additional testing is required, such as x-rays or MRIs, you will be advised of this before beginning any treatment
   
 
Q. Will I receive a diagnosis; and be told what’s wrong with me?
A. Yes. The doctor will explain the examination findings to help you understand the condition(s) or injuries.
   
 
Q. Does the doctor take/always take x-rays of me?
A.
No. Most often x-rays are not required or recommended by the doctor. If x-rays or other imaging procedures such as an MRI, PET or CAT scans are necessary, the doctor will refer you to a nearby imaging center, clinic or hospital.
   
 
Q. What type of treatment can I expect?
A.
The treatment plan will be tailored to your injury/condition. The treatment plan and recommended treatments will be explained to you before any treatment is rendered. See TREATMENTS for more information on the types of treatment offered
   
 
Q. How long has the doctor been in practice?
A. Ten years.  For more information see ABOUT US.
   
 
Q. What does my insurance plan cover?
A.
This depends on the plan. We are preferred providers for most plans and accept almost all insurance plans, however individual coverage varies widely. We strongly recommend that you call your insurance plan and ask about coverage. Most insurance cards have a telephone number on the back of your card. We will verify coverage at the time of your first visit. Most health insurance plans involve either co-pays or deductibles. Co-pays are due at the time of service on each visit. If there are coverage issues for specific treatments, the doctor may be able to tailor your treatment plan to stay within your plan’s coverage limitations. See PAYMENT METHODS for additional information.
   
 
Q. What are co-pays?
A. Co-pays are the patient’s share of the treatment cost and are due at the time of service for every visit.
   
 
Q. What is a deductible?
A.
Very basically, a deductible is a dollar figure amount that must be reached before an insurance plan kicks in. Up to this dollar amount, the patient is responsible for paying for care. Typically an annual deductible is met by visits to doctors, clinics and hospitals, including visits to this clinic. Rarely, there are separate deductibles for specialist visits such as chiropractic care. At times plans may have both co-pays and deductibles. We recommend you call your health plan to find out more information, including if your deductible has “been met”.
   
 
Q. I was in a car-accident and need treatment, should I use car insurance, and do you accept car/auto insurance?
A. Yes. Call us to set up an appointment. We can assist you with any coverage that may be available to you .
