Frequently Asked Questions
What’s involved in your initial exam?
The initial hour-long visit includes taking a brief patient history followed by orthopedic testing, range of motion and joint-muscle evaluation. Appropriate treatment is given and subsequent half-hour follow-up visits are scheduled as needed.
What constitutes a basic treatment protocol?
A typical protocol involves 2-3 visits plus specific exercises to stretch or strengthen the injured area.
Are X-rays required for treatment?
X-rays are not mandatory for treatment but will be requested when clinical need arises or in cases of trauma.
What are your fees?
The fee for an initial exam (including history, evaluation and treatment) is $160. Subsequent (regular office) visits are $80 for 30 minutes. Fees reflect customary current charges as established by insurance companies and workers compensation fees. There is a reduced rate for students and senior citizens.
How do I handle payment?
Payment is required at the time of services rendered unless other arrangements have been made with the doctor. Medicare, personal injury and workers compensation cases can be handled. Insurance reimbursement forms are available.
