Payment is required at the time of service. We accept Cash, Checks, MasterCard, Visa and Discover. An insurance form can be provided for any billable service to you, if you would like to submit it to your insurance. We have opted out of Medicare; therefore, Medicare cannot be billed, and we do not accept any insurance.
Why Have We Done That?
We strive to provide safe innovative therapies to our patients to solve difficult issues. We are constantly searching for the best ways to enhance normal function, so your body will function at its optimal level.
Traditional medicine limits itself to drugs and surgery. They do a lot of testing with very expensive tests that are not nearly as accurate as they would like you to believe. Insurances, Medicaid and Medicare require that you only get “pre – authorized” treatments that have been “proven” with expensive double-blind studies that were designed for an entirely different purpose. Yet, we rank near the bottom of first world countries in life expectancy!
Because we are a cash based practice, we are free to offer you the best medical care available. Sometimes we find that the traditional route is the best one. But more often than not, we offer other choices that we feel might work better for you that don’t result in side effects and complications.
Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) is usually much less expensive than conventional medicine. Conventional medicine is much more likely to be covered by third party insurance, but what good is it if it doesn’t work for you?? The problem is that Medicare charges doctors with “fraud” if they provide “unproven” therapies (by the governments’ definitions). Insurance companies have been known to report doctors to medical boards if they do not agree with the therapies chosen by the patient and doctor together. Do you want an insurance employee dictating your plan of treatment??
We have opted out of that system, so we are free to provide you with cost- effective care. We do not suggest tests that we feel are unnecessary or unlikely to be helpful. We simply charge what is needed for us to stay in business. You are paying for services that we both anticipate will be worth a great deal to you. We appreciate your trust in us. And we especially thank you for the friends and relatives you refer to us.
