What is an Osteopathic Physician?
Osteopathy was started in the late 1800's by a M.D. Physician, Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, that did not like how medical care was being delivered at that time. He felt that a patient should be treated as a person and not as a disease. He believed in a more holistic approach. He also believed that the structure and function of a person's body were interrelated. In order to allow the body to function at its maximal potential it must be free from any musculoskeletal restrictions. Over the past 125 years these treatments have been added to and fine tuned. http://doctorsthatdo.org/difference

A Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine Physician is a MD or DO that has completed Medical School and additional 3 years of Residency training. They have completed the Board Certification which includes written, oral and palpatory exams. They are trained in the inner-workings of the neurologically intact musculoskeletal system and treatments for the common injuries that can occur.
Do you accept insurance?
We do not accept insurance. Our priority is providing patient centered care and a part of that is creating transparency with pricing and by making sure we have nothing, not even an insurance company, standing in the way of our connection. While this means our visit prices are generally lower than an insurance based practice, we beleive it actually allows to provide a higher level of care and access for our patients. Due to this we do not see patients with Medicare.
What types of payment do you accept?
We accept ONLY credit cards.
We also accept any HSA or FSA payments.
How much does a visit cost?
Each visit is 75.00 and is easily paid prior to your appointment through our scheduling site. This is for 15 minutes of face to face consultation time with our Physician, reviewing paperwork prior to the visit and sending any educational information, ordering test and/or medications. Please make sure you have sent any paperwork you would like reviewed prior to your visit. Anything not available at the time of the visit will require more visits.
