If you have health insurance that we accept (please see payments and insurance section under services) , your cost will be dictated by the details of your insurance plan and you will be responsible for any copays, coinsurance, and/or deductibles outlined in your plan.
If you do not use insurance, or we have not been able to verify your insurance, we expect payment in full at the time of service and provide a time of service discount. With this discount, a new patient visit including the exam and treatment averages $158 and follow up visits average $70.
Please see the "Payments and Insurance" section under "Services" for a full list of the insurance companies we are in network with. If your insurance company is not listed we may still be able to bill your insurance. Please inquire about specific questions.

When deemed necessary, our doctors will refer patients for imaging. However, according to current research, it is not recommended that chiropractors perform xrays on every patient as it has been shown to be of limited use for the majority of cases and exposes patients to unecesary radiation. Evidence based best practice recommends only sending patients for imaging under specific circumstances or when not responding to regular care.
Below is an article by the American Chiropractic Association about x-ray recommendations.
