To make your first appointment easier, we have created Online Intake Forms, which will be sent directly to our office, and Dr. Davis. Of course, we always have paper forms available, just arrive 15 minutes early to complete them.
Not sure what to expect? If you’ve never been to a chiropractor before, we understand you may have a lot of questions. No problem! During your first visit, we will go over what you can expect in our office, and how chiropractic works. (Check out the “Your First Visit” button, below, for a quick guide to your first day!)
What should I wear? We recommend you wear comfortable, athletic clothing for your initial exam. If X Rays are needed, we will require metal piercings and and clothing with metal to be removed. Please bring clothing with you that does not have metal buttons, zippers, or other artifacts. You may change in the exam room, if needed.
How can Chiropractic help me? You are more than just moving parts on a machine. Your body is an intelligent, dynamic, interconnected system of joints, nerves, bones, and other tissues. A Doctor of Chiropractic is trained to analyse, diagnose, and treat this system, not just cover up the symptoms. With corrective chiropractic adjustments, many of our patients experience great improvements, not only in the condition they initially sought treatment for, but in many other areas of their health, as well.
Do I have to have insurance to be seen? No! While we do accept insurance, we also have options available for uninsured or under-insured patients. Chiropractic care is affordable and effective! Our staff will be happy to discuss pricing and payment options with you.
How much does it cost to get started? Probably a lot less than you think! Our initial exam is only $30. Yes, you read that correctly! You will receive a full consultation, chiropractic analysis, condition specific orthopedic & neurological testing, range of motion analysis, and report of findings with Dr. Davis, for only $30!
Do you require expensive, prepaid care plans? No. The doctor will develop an individualized plan of care for you to follow, however, we do not require you to pay for care before you receive it. For our uninsured or under-insured patients, we do have options available, which reduce overall cost. Our front desk will be happy to discuss pricing and payment options with you.
Do you take X Rays? Our facility does have affordable X Ray imaging on site. Dr. Davis may feel X Rays, or another advanced imaging, is needed to better assess your condition, and provide the best treatment possible. If you have recent imaging from another facility, we may be able to use that. Necessity will vary from patient to patient, and may not be required for treatment. Pricing can be as low as $55, for a patient paying out-of-pocket, at the time services are rendered.
What kind of insurance do you accept? We are currently in network with Medicare, Humana Medicare Advantage Plans, WellCare, and Blue Cross Blue Shield State Plans (Peba). Though we are considered an out-of-network provider for other BCBS plans, most people have out-of-network chiropractic benefits they are unaware of. Our staff will be happy to check for you.
Will I be adjusted same day? In order to provide our patients with the best care possible, Dr. Davis completes a very thorough consultation and examination. After reviewing any diagnostic imaging, orthopedic test results, neurological exams, and notes made during your health history consultation, she will provide you with a full Report of Findings and care recommendations. Often times, care is provided on the same day as your initial visit. Considering the depth of the the exam, and potential need for advanced imaging analysis, treatment may be on your second visit. To rush through this process would be a disservice to you.
We pride ourselves in being a clinic that fully involves and empowers you, the patient, in your own health care goals. Dr. Davis will spend time reviewing and explaining her findings, including any imaging taken. Once all of your questions have been answered, you will receive your first adjustment!
What technique does the doctor use? Each patient, and their individual needs, differs from the next. Dr. Davis uses a variety of adjusting techniques to tailor care that is most appropriate for you. Chiropractic does not have to be forceful, to be effective. In addition to traditional manual techniques, she is trained in some of the most conservative forms of care possible, for patients with limited tolerance. During your visit, treatment may include: manual Diversified adjusting, Thompson and Pierce drop table techniques, Cox Flexion-Distraction, Activator instrument, and toggle, to name a few.
Can I just come when I feel like I’m in pain? You can, however, this is like just brushing your teeth when you feel like you have cavities. Chiropractic care is great for helping you get out of pain, however, it truly works best as preventative care. Maintenance plans keep your body healthy, so you are better able to PREVENT injury, and FUNCTION optimally.
