New Patient Information
A new patient can expect to spend about one hour at the office for their first visit. This visit includes time to fill out the necessary entrance forms*, have a thorough consultation with the doctor, and allows the doctor to perform his examination.Your diet and nutritional state are also important to the doctor. Any medications, special diets, or dietary supplements will be reviewed on your first visit.
The second visit is typically when the doctor communicates his report of findings and the patient receives the first treatment. The second visit will take approximately 30 – 45 minutes. Subsequent visits are typically 15 minutes or less.
*If you have your entrance forms completed already, you can deduct 15 to 20 minutes from the estimated time of the first visit.
The number one question we hear from patients is “Do you accept insurance?” Chiropractic coverage is a benefit included in many medical policies. We will contact your insurance company for an estimation of benefits including co-pays, deductibles, and any limitations before the conclusion of your first visit and review those benefits with you.
Our office is an In-Network Preferred Provider for Anthem-Blue/Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna, Sagamore, and Community Health Alliance, as well as a Participating Provider for Medicare. As an In-Network Provider, we have agreed to a negotiated rate with your insurance company which often translates into much lower costs to our patients.
Our office will be happy to assist you by preparing and filing your insurance claims as well as communicate with the insurance company in order to obtain payment. For those without chiropractic benefits, we offer a 20% time-of-service discount.
