When you first arrive, please check-in with Registration as you will be given some new patient paperwork to complete.

As of January 1, 2022:
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
Once the paperwork has been completed, one of our Chiropractic Assistants (CAs) will go over your medical history, the reason for your visit, and perform a range-of-motion exam. Please be thorough as the CA is collecting information for your doctor.
The doctor will review the information collected from the Chiropractic Assistant and ask you various questions to determine the appropriate course of treatment. Treatments generally consist of a spinal manipulation using the Ortman Technique and, if needed, other supportive and/or physiotherapy services.
Your doctor will provide instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include, ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches. Your doctor may also recommend vitamin supplements and other nutritional support.
Depending on your condition, your doctor may recommend a follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
