Your New Patient Paperwork
Please download your new patient paperwork and fill them out as completely as possible prior to your first appointment. It's important to be as complete as possible with your health history even if you think the conditions are unrelated to what you are seeking care for.
Please bring your completed forms along with any imaging or diagnostic studies to your first appointment.
If you can not fill out your new patient paperwork ahead of time, please arrive 15 minutes early to your first appointment.
Do you accept my insurance?Yes, we accept most insurances including insurance from people who have been hurt in a car accident. However, since there are so many different plans and coverage options, we will only be able to answer specific insurance coverage questions after we have your specific insurance information. We will collect your insurance information on your first visit. Your insurance coverage along with any out-of-pocket expenses that you may encounter will be discussed with you before starting care. If you need to know your insurance coverage prior to your first appointment, we encourage you to call your insurance company and verify your chiropractic benefits. Payments and copays are due at time of service unless other arrangements have been made.
What if I don't have insurance?For many individuals that are uninsured, underinsured or have high deductible health plans our care is affordable enough that they will just pay out of pocket for their care. We also offer care through a national discount medical plan called ChiroHealth USA for those who prefer that option.
How do I know if chiropractic is right for me?That’s what we’re here for. While we believe the care we provide is a great option most of the time, we’re also happy to give you other options and referrals if we determine that’s a better option. We invite you to schedule your first appointment so we can learn more about your needs.
What type of patients do you see?We pride ourselves on being able to care for patients of many different ages, backgrounds, and health conditions. Here's some examples of the types of conditions we that we have helped: Headaches or migraines Back or neck pain Arm or leg pain Shoulder pain Carpal tunnel Scoliosis Sciatica Whiplash Disc injuries Sports injuries Chiropractic for kids Chiropractic during pregnancy Vertigo

GOOD FAITH ESTIMATEYou have the right to receive a "Good Faith Estimate" explaining how much your medical care will cost Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don't have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees. Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your healthcare provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
Your First Visits
We strive to make your experience comfortable, relaxing, and pertinent to your health goals. Traditional chiropractic has a stigma attached to it that makes patients feel as if they are a number getting shuffled through the mix with a brief, generic treatment.
We understand that everyone is different and so are your injuries. That's why we take the time to do a thorough consult and examination during your first visit. It helps us develop a specific care plan designed to get you the best possible results.
After your consultation and exam, Dr. Timar will explain what he found, what you should expect from care, and what needs to be done in order for you to recover as quickly as possible.
