General Info:
Upper Cervical Care strives to correct the underlying causes of health problems without the use of drugs or surgery. While excellent medical care is available for critical situations and acute trauma, these cases represent a small portion of today's healthcare problems. Many people live with chronic conditions that have progressed for years despite traditional healthcare. Furthermore, in recent years, side effects have become a major concern for patients (i.e. Celebrex , Vioxx and OxyContin ). By some accounts, hundreds of thousands die annually in the United States due to medical error and adverse side effects. Too often, patients discover upper cervical care only after having undergone years of traditional healthcare which has just treated the symptoms or effects of their conditions. Prolonged treatments that ignore the cause may permit health problems to progress to the point that they could require surgical intervention. This is where upper cervical care differs from traditional medicine. Upper cervical care strives to correct the underlying cause of health problems without the use of drugs or surgery. Doctors who are part of the Upper Cervical Health Centers of America network have had extensive post-graduate training and education in the brain stem and upper cervical spine. This knowledge base, coupled with the latest technology, enables doctors to produce consistent results for patients in the correction of scores of health problems. Through Upper Cervical Health Centers of America, countless patients across the country have achieved a greater state of health without the risk of potentially harmful drugs or surgery.

Overall
When I called to make the appo...

When I called to make the appointment I asked the receptionist how much a consultation was. She asked if I had insurance. I said no I’m private pay. She said it was free. I asked her how much the adjustments were because I was worried about the price. She said “Oh don’t worry we will work with you especially since you don’t have insurance. We are here to help you.” Well, after that comment I made my first appointment.
At my first appointment I had extreme pain in my neck (my c3 pops out a lot causing severe headaches and pain into my left shoulder and back.) I was examined and told I would need to pay $200 now for X-rays and then he would develop an “action plan” just for me. If they know you need X-rays then they should have told me on the first phone call – right? He wanted his own also, not from another doctor. My medical doctor just took X-rays of the same area from complains of pain. He spent a total of 5 minutes with me and talked so fast I could barely understand him. He was in a big hurry. I just thought he was behind that day.
2nd visit – He did an adjustment on this visit, which is just pop the top 2 (c1-c2) in and said the rest would align itself over time. He was very rushed on this visit also. I spent maybe 5 minutes with him. I asked him then how much this would cost that I didn’t have insurance. He said don’t worry, when you come the next visit (scheduled 2 days later) I will give you my “action plan” for you.
3rd visit and last – He again was in a really big hurry – spent 5 mins with me and then had his receptionist come in and give me his “action plan”. That plan was 24 visits – 3 visits a week for 4 weeks, 2 visits a week for 4 weeks and 1 visit week for 4 weeks. Total weeks (12) Cost $1640+$200 X-rays – total 12 week plan $1840.00! They wanted me to pay right then – upfront for the (12) week plan. The “plan” stated that if I came and didn’t need an adjustment then of course he wouldn’t give me one but yet I paid for it already, no refunds. Why not say, “you look fine today, no adjustment needed – then that cost roll over to another adjustment. That is what you would expect but NO not here – you pay upfront and if you don’t use it you lose it. I told the reception I certainly could not afford to pay them $1640 for a service that was less than 50% going to work. She then charged be $120 for the (2) adjustments done. A total to his guy of $320 for x-rays I already had and 2 adjustments. Which we all know it takes more than that to fix a problem. Now does that sound like a fair deal to you?
What a rip off – this guy is preying on innocent victims in desperate need of relieving pain. Who pays a Chiropractor $1840 upfront for services that last only 12 weeks and you get adjustments only when you need it – but already paid for it? Who can afford to get off of work all of those times? Why not just charge as the patient comes? What more proof does anyone need this guy is a TOTAL RIP OFF. How sick he must be to prey on innocent hurting people. He should have his license revoked. There are really good Chiropractors out there and guys like this make them all look bad.
