The following are common questions and answers about about our practice and scheduling an appointment. Please contact us with any further questions you may have here.
Yes, the practice naturally goes through periods where the waiting time for a first appointment can fluctuate; however, we will make every effort to schedule your appointment as soon as possible.
Yes, once you have registered through the portal as a new patient, or if you are an established patient, you may choose to schedule your own visit through the ‘My Appointments’ tab on the right hand side within the portal.
No, Osteopathic Care is a subspecialty practice, providing osteopathic manipulative treatment. While our physicians are fully licensed, we do not provide routine annual examinations or management of primary medical conditions, such as diabetes or high blood pressure. We do work with your primary care physician and other specialists to help provide a comprehensive treatment plan as needed.
Yes, as needed according to your medical history, symptoms, and response to osteopathic treatment, we may order labs, imaging and prescriptions. These are typically covered under your health insurance and we would make sure this is so before ordering anything.
In addition, we may suggest saliva studies to look at cortisol levels, sex hormones, neurotransmitters or other studies. These are generally not covered by your insurance, but would be covered through a health savings or flex account (HSA or FSA). These are discussions we have together so you are fully aware of any additional costs before ordering anything.
