Since we don't have insurance, we pay cash. Dr. Manning charges $50 per adjustment that could be anywhere between 5 to 20 minuts plus test every other month, each about $100. That totals to almost $2.300 payable in 3-4 months. That's a little over that what we expected.
Any thoughts if that's the price any chiro would charge?
Any recommendations on chiros in west burbs?
Thanks a lot!
Very standard for Dr. Manning. First appointment is a testing consultation, second appointment is a discussion of the results and the proposed course of treatment. I'd be concerned with doctor that just jumped right in and didn't actually evaluate me and discuss the results with me and the course of treatment.
As the pp post stated, prenatal and infants are areas in which he specializes, but he treats entire families.
Oh, and testing every other month must be particular to your husband's situation. As for me, I've been seeing him on and off for about 3 years and if I've gone more than, I *think* it's 3 mos without seeing him, he wants to re-evaluate. It could be longer, I just don't remember. I'm currently seeing him 2 x's a week and simply asked if I could pay twice a month rather than per visit and he was fine with that.
I've been to another chiro, Dr. Susan Mardoian, but she's in the Skokie area, I think. She uses the little gun "thingy" (very technical term, I know) and is more of a holistic doctor in that she prescribes herbs, floral essences and thought exercises, etc. to assist in your treatment. I really liked her. Just a bit far for me.
