Followed by a detailed assessment of your complaints to seek out the root cause of your dysfunction. Then we’ll be able to create a comprehensive treatment plan that is customized only for you and work together towards your goals.

However, we will be able to provide you with a “Superbill” (Includes medical billing codes) that you can submit independently to your insurance provider. Every policy is different so you will need to check with your insurance policy about coverage with “Out-of-Network” providers and to determine if they will be able to reimburse you.
We welcome payment through HSA (Health Savings Account) or FSA (Flexible Spending Account) or HRA (Health Reimbursement Arrangement). We also accept Visa or Mastercard as forms of payment.
