On your first visit, when you enter the office, you will be asked to complete some paperwork including an extensive health history form. It’s very important that Dr. Porter find out as much information about your current and previous health conditions so that he can make an accurate assessment. Please bring any pertinent information with you such as MRI reports or X-rays. And, if you are currently taking any medications, we’ll need a complete list.
Once your paperwork has been completed, you can expect to have a conversation with one of our staff members who will review your paperwork and answer any questions you may have. Then, you will meet with Dr. Porter and discuss your condition and what’s bothering you.
At that point, he’ll talk to you about what he has found and what he recommends for treatment. If you’re a candidate for chiropractic care, he can perform your first adjustment on this visit.
If you’re not a candidate for chiropractic care, he will recommend to you some of the top doctors in our area who specialize in the care you need.
Special Note to Nutrition Response Testing Patients: As a new patient, Dr. Porter will “muscle-test” you and gather information about you to determine whether or not he can help you. The fee for the first visit includes the second visit called the “Report of Findings” which occurs a few days later. The Report of Findings will have your health improvement plan if he determines you are a nutritional patient. It will also include the time frame for healing, the initial requirements for you to get better and the expenses. If you and Dr. Porter agree to work together, then you can start the program.
Dr. Porter’s practice is fee for service
and payment is due at the time of treatment.
Cash, check, debit or credit cards are accepted.
When possible, we will call to verify benefits on your insurance. However, the benefits quoted to us by your insurance carrier are not a guarantee of payment. If Dr. Porter participates with your insurance plan, payment will be due by you at the time of service for any non-covered services, deductibles or co-pays. For patients’ convenience, we promptly bill all insurance carriers weekly. If you are covered by an insurance plan that Dr. Porter does not participate with, payment in full is due at time of treatment; rest assured that billings are done at no charge and all possible reimbursements will be sent directly from the insurance carrier to you.
