Helpful hints to help you choose the right Chiropractor for you!
Location, Location, Location – Consider where you work and live. You want to find a Chiropractor whose location is convenient for you.
Recommendations – A good place to start is to ask your primary care physician, physical therapist, family and friends to recommend a Chiropractor. Remember though, that one person’s definition of the best chiropractor may be very different from yours. While recommendations can be valuable, it is important to find a chiropractor who can meet your specific needs.
Some questions you may want to ask are:
•Does the chiropractor accept your insurance? Is he/she a network provider?
•What is the policy at the chiropractic clinic for payment of services that are denied, or not covered by insurance? Inquire about discounts for services not covered by insurance.
•What are the chiropractor’s fees for the initial examinations? Chiropractic Adjustments? Other therapies? These fees should be competitive for the local area.
•What kind of discounts does the chiropractor offer? Some Chiropractic Clinics offer a reduced fee for cash payments at the time of service. Do they offer a family discount?
•How long will you have to wait to get an appointment? Are same and next day appointments available?
•How long is the average wait time in the waiting room?
•Does the chiropractor offer a list of professional references? Often chiropractors will provide a list of other healthcare professionals in the area whom they work with – physical therapists, medical doctors, or alternative practitioners, such as acupuncturists.
•Is the office staff friendly and helpful? Did they take their time to answer your questions, and make you feel comfortable and welcome?
Background Research on Chiropractors – Selecting a Chiropractor, like any health care professional, is something that should be done with care. Do not feel obligated to be treated by the first chiropractor you talk with, your goal is finding one best suited to treat your condition. It is the chiropractor’s responsibility to recommend the course of care for the patient, it is the patient’s choice whether or not to accept the recommendations. You should never feel like a doctor is pressuring you into a treatment or payment decision.
Talk to the Chiropractor – First have a consultation with the Chiropractor. If this is your first time ever seeing a Chiropractor, you may have a lot of questions. All of this should be done in a relaxed atmosphere so you feel comfortable with your decision to choose your new chiropractor. The doctor should not make you feel as though you were rushed through the initial interview and consultation. Ask yourself:
•Is the Chiropractor friendly and courteous?
•Do you feel comfortable talking with this chiropractor?
•Has this Chiropractor fully answered all my questions?
•Did the Chiropractor listen to your complete explanation of symptoms and treatment concerns and preferences?
