When I spoke with the staff to schedule the appointment, she told me that IF the dr required x-rays there would be a cost of $40. When I saw the Dr. he made it clear he does not work with out his x-rays. So the consultation actually cost $40 and it includes x-rays. Because, regardless he was going to require his own x-rays.
I had x-rays done in February or March by my chiropractor, I was told he only adjust patients after evaluating the x-rays. So I intentionally left the paperwork completed so my x-rays could be requested from my chiropractor in Los Angeles. I needed an adjustment. I am still in pain, so obviously there has not been much change to my body that the x-rays would be extremely different. , In addition to that, I moved from LA to Sacramento. and have not had an adjustment in two months. I figured those x rays would be a relatively recent and could be used to by Dr Hanson to evaluate me. they were not, he didn't even have his staff request them. i am not in a position to pay for x-rays every three months. I understand the evaluation purpose, but I also know there is a physical evaluation, that I will know what is working when i am having regular adjustments and treatment.
I felt very much dismissed by Dr Hanson. Honestly, I have been in pain for the last year, and have made certain changes to adjust for it. Is it a cure, no, but I am not in enough pain to seek assistance from an office that I came for help, but when i left I was more upset than when I came in.
My mom has been seeing Dr Hanson and his decompression equipment has made a difference in her life and health, That is something not every chiropractor offers, so I understand the advantage he has over other offices. Maybe I will return at a later time. I am torn with continuing the care at his office. At this time, I will continue to see my Dr in Los Angeles. My insurance will cover several more adjustments.
