Welcome to St. Louis Spine & Health. We are happy you have made a decision to improve your overall health and hope you will take the time to read on about what to expect.
Your first visit will consist of an introduction to the doctor, a consultation about your individual case followed by an exam. During your consultation the key factors of your health history will be gathered. Once the consultation is finished an exam will be performed. A chiropractic structural evaluation is given, along with an energy balance evaluation of chakra and acupuncture pathways.
There is the availability to also schedule time for evaluation of nutritional reflexes, or perform an emotional release technique on future visits. Normal follow up visits will averge 10 to 15 minutes. There are exceptions such as with decompression patients that are being seen for lumbar spine conditions that the DRX9000 is used for – their visits average 1 hour and 15 minutes.
If you only have a consultation it is free of charge. The exam (usually done the 1st visit) will cost $60. Office visits there after in which the doctor adjusts you, there is a charge of $45.00. Additional charges apply for extra time spent, acupuncture, and of course vitamins/supplements. Our massage therapist charges $35.00 for the first half hour and $60.00 per hour. The Biomeridian is a tool to determine overall health of the patient measuring specific acupuncture points that relate to tissue and organ functions. The visits using the Biomeridian take 30 minutes and the 1st visit is $75 with follow up visits costing $50.
Regarding insurance, we will be managing the claim process for you. All we really need is a copy of your insurance card to file the claim appropriately. Please be advised that a verification of eligibility is not always a guarantee of payment. This is why we ask you to carefully read and sign the statement of financial responsibility found on the second page of your case history. Should you have specific questions regarding your insurance benefits please call them directly to determine your coverage or answer your specific questions you have for them.
We will do our part to make this a pleasant, productive process so that you may experience new energy, better health and longer life. Thank you for taking the time to read this and we look forward to meeting you.
