Frequently Asked Questions
1. What happens when I get there?
Part 1: Intake, Examination and Testing
Upon arrival you will complete any necessary paperwork, followed by a brief tour of our facility. You will then meet with the doctor and be evaluated and receive any necessary testing to help the doctor determine your level of function, the condition of your spine and the root cause of your health concerns. Following part one of your visit, you will be scheduled for part two, a follow up orientation time and meeting with the doctor to discuss your results, recommendations and finalize a treatment plan. Please allow up to one hour for this visit.
Part 2: Orientation, Review and Recommendations
Your follow up visit will be scheduled promptly following your first visit. The doctor will have organized your case and formulated a treatment plan specifically for you. This visit is intended to give you greater clarity into your condition and specify how we can help you achieve you desired health goals. You will meet with the doctor and review your results and treatment recommendations. Please allow 30 minutes for this visit.
2. Do you take insurance?
Yes! We are participating “In Network” with most insurance companies and will bill insurance directly for you. In the event we are not “In network”, we will still verify your insurance and provide you with an itemized receipt for reimbursement for services rendered. In other words, if applicable, your insurance may directly reimburse you for any covered services provided at our clinic. We do accept payment via HSA, HRA or Flex Spending Accounts that many insurance plans include. Reference FAQ3 for more info.
3. If you don’t take my insurance, can I come to your office?
Yes. We have a thriving practice. We follow a direct primary care model. Our fees and treatment plans are designed for people with and without insurance. Our standard fees are very reasonable, lower than most insurance copays. Truthfully, the majority of insurances in FL offer minimal coverage for chiropractic services making it an out of pocket expense even for the insured patient. If you believe there will be some insurance reimbursement potential, we will give you an itemized receipt that you may submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement. We have patients who go this route successfully and we can help you with any other questions regarding this issue, just ask at the front desk.
4. When will I know the total cost?
You will know the exact costs before incurring any bill. While we cannot determine your actual cost until after a proper evaluation and the doctor completes a treatment plan, at that time we will be clear and upfront about the cost. Our fees are very reasonable especially in comparison with the traditional medical costs for treatments, and we work with you to find the best path to pay for your treatments.
5. Are you going to want me to sign a contract?
No contracts. However for your convenience we offer care plans that allow you to purchase a package of treatments.
6. How much are chiropractic adjustments?
Prices can vary depending on what type of treatment you receive.
7. I’ve heard that once you go to a chiropractor you always have to go.
Many people choose to include regular chiropractic adjustments as part of living a healthy lifestyle. After experiencing the benefits of chiropractic adjustments many often desire to continue experiencing the benefits on an ongoing basis. We offer lifestyle memberships for those who desire to continue with regular chiropractic care.
8. I’m nervous about getting adjusted.
We completely understand. Many of our patients nervous initially but are able to overcome this apprehension. First, please understand you will not be adjusted until the proper clinical evaluation and testing has been completed and you and the doctor discuss your case and you decide to go ahead with the treatment. (Scientific.) Second, realize that a chiropractic adjustment is a scientific intervention and is very safe.
The adjustment is a gentle and specific alignment of the misaligned vertebra of your spine. Often this misalignment present is the root cause of your pain and discomfort, and why your even considering chiropractic care in the first place. Once your spine is aligned and corrected you will feel like you have a new lease on life, at least that is what we constantly hear from our patients. Finally, there are several adjustment techniques we employ to ensure that we work successfully with all different body types. We are confident you will have a positive experience!
9. How often will I need to get an adjustment?
Frequency is determined by the condition of your spine and corresponding health issues, your goals and the recommendation of your doctor. Typically, people will begin at a higher frequency of adjustments, retraining the spine and muscles to adapt to the properly aligned position. As the spine corrects and is stabilized, the adjustment frequency reduces. Often people will come 2 or 3 treatments a week for a few weeks and then taper off as is appropriate. Ultimately, the doctor’s recommendations will reflect whatever will ensure you achieve the best results. You will be able to discuss this specifically with the doctor at the appropriate time.
