"No medical physician has ever been able to provide such relief for my neck and back. Dr. Six has certainly earned my respect and admiration for her knowledgeable and dedicated work. I wish I had found her sooner."
Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
At Six Chiropractic Integrative Wellness Center, we are considered a non-participating or “out-of-network” provider. We feel that to provide you with the very best care, we cannot accept the treatment or fee restrictions dictated by insurance companies to participating providers.
For your convenience, we electronically file your claim with your health insurance carrier. Filling your claim on your behave is not a guarantee of coverage for services rendered. We accept Check, Cash, Visa and Mastercard.
We electronically file your Medicare claim as required by law. Coverage, however, is restrictive and does not cover all of our offered services that we may deem necessary for your care.
To function efficiently and effectively, cancellations must be made 24 hours prior to scheduled appointments. We request at least 48 hour notification for new patient cancellation. Failure to cancel a scheduled appointment within the required time will result in a charge of $50.00 for current patients or $150.00 for new patients. Exceptions will only be made by the discretion of the doctor and office staff. Cancellations for business reasons are NOT an exception and will be charged the full office visit fee.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Melanie Six to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Melanie Six to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Melanie Six will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Melanie Six will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Melanie Six will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Melanie Six will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
