Quality chiropractic care is an integral part of any wellness program – an important tool in maintaining good health. Along with proper diet, exercise, rest and mental attitude, quality chiropractic care is essential part of an overall wellness plan.
A chiropractic physician’s goal is to make your spine healthy and keep it that way. This is accomplished through chiropractic adjustment – a gentle, painless, low force technique unique to chiropractic physicians. Your nervous system is the master controller of your body, and that is where we remove nerve interference.
Holistic chiropractic care has proven to be a safe, natural, drug-free way to good health for millions of people around the world. It is the fastest growing health care system today and for good reason – it gets results.
What Should I Expect?
After an in-depth consultation, a thorough examination is performed. Dr. Murphy will then comprehensively explain his findings and recommended treatment program to you.
Dr. Murphy’s recommendations will often include lifestyle factors that affect your overall health, such as your diet, level of exercise, your rest, and recreational habits.
Dr. Murphy’s treatment may also include adjunctive therapies, depending on your state of health. The effects of your treatment may be immediate or they may take time. Again, all is dependent on your current overall state of well being.
What is Maintenance Care?
Regular chiropractic check ups are as important as regular dental check ups for wellness. You should have them even if you “feel” well because they help prevent future problems and help to maintain your good health. Dr. Murphy’s recommendations for your care are the same as those he would make for members of his own family members under the same circumstances. We want you to remain well!
What are the Office Hours?
Our office hours are extremely flexible for your convenience. They are part of our overall commitment to quality. We try to accommodate true emergencies at any time, but do request you schedule an appointment in advance. In this way, we can continue to provide the highest quality of service to you, our patient. We appreciate 24 hours advance notice of cancellations and request that you be on time for you scheduled appointment.
What Are the Payment Options?
We understand our obligations to our patients as consumers, and therefore, our fees are set. You may discuss fees at any time with Dr. Murphy or our office manager. There are many cash payment options including discounted, pre-pay care plans. We are also a Care Credit provider and can offer their pay-over-time credit feature
Our qualified staff has made every effort to help keep down the cost of your wellness care. We have several easy payment options available to you. Please inquire at the front desk. We also accept MasterCard, Discover, AMEX and Visa for your convenience as well as debit cards
What About Health Insurance?
In this ever-changing world, health insurance has become more and more complex. Our staff is trained to make every effort to assure that you receive the maximum benefits that you are entitled to from your plan. Although we are “out-of-network” with all insurance plans except Care Credit, most insurance companies provide OON benefits at the same deductible level as in-network providers.
Our office will be happy to verify your coverage and help you fill out your forms. In most cases, we will submit your forms for you. Most insurance plans have a deductible and co-payment for which the patient is responsible whether in or out of network. Again, this depends on your policy and its provisions.
We also offer a CASH DISCOUNT PROGRAM for those without insurance coverage. Click here for details.
Are There Discounts for Seniors?
As part of our quality assurance program, we have established special discounted fees for our seniors. All medicare forms and supplemental insurance forms will be filled out and submitted for you by our staff. We have a flat Medicare fee that is very affordable.
Are You Accepting New Patients?
We welcome new patients always! A referral is the finest compliment a patient can make to our office. Tell someone who may benefit from our special wellness care about this website and Suburban Chiropractic Center.
