Your First Visit
Your first impression during your initial visit to Oakland Spine and Physical Therapy is our No Waiting Policy, which is rigorously enforced. We know how valuable your time is, and you will not wait longer than five minutes to be seen.
Looking to save even more time? By bringing in the new patient paperwork completed ahead of time we can save you 10-15 minutes! Be sure to bring a form of ID as well as your most recent insurance card for your first visit. Our patient coordinators are looking forward to guiding you through the first visit upon your arrival!
We will work with you to compile personal information and take a complete medical history. Insurance and payment plans will be explored, we do accept most insurance plans. You will then be examined, and depending upon the reason for your visit, diagnostic testing may be ordered, including X-ray, nerve and muscle testing, Cat Scan or MRI.
Once your chiropractor has reached a definitive diagnosis, he will design a customized treatment plan using a variety of modalities such as heat/cold therapy (which may include our LCT 1000 Deep Tissue (Class IV) Laser), ultrasound, joint/spinal manipulation, physical therapy and exercise and nutritional guidance.
We work with most insurance companies. However, because each plan and policy can be different within an insurance company, it is best for our insurance department to verify your coverage for you. In most cases, even if we are out of your network, you are only responsible for your co-payment.
If you would like us to verify your coverage before coming to us, please call and we will be happy to help you.
