Terms of Acceptance
The goal of our office is to enable patients to gain control of their health. To attain this we believe communication is the key. There are often topics that are hard to understand and we hope this document will clarify those issues for you.
Please read the below and if you have any questions please feel free to ask one of our staff members.
A patient, in coming to the chiropractic doctor, gives the doctor permission and authority to care for the patient in accordance with the chiropractic tests, diagnosis, and analysis. The chiropractic adjustment or other clinical procedures are usually beneficial and seldom cause any problems. In rare cases, underlying physical defects, deformities or pathologies may render the patient susceptible to injury. The doctor, of course, will not give any treatment or care if he/she is aware that such care may be contra-indicated. Again, it is the responsibility of the patient to make it known, or to learn through healthcare procedures what he/she is suffering from: latent pathological defects, illnesses or deformities which would otherwise not come to the attention of the chiropractic physician. The chiropractic doctor provides a specialized, non-duplicating health care service. Your doctor of chiropractic is licensed in a special practice and is available to work with other types of providers in your health care regimen. I understand that if I am accepted as a patient by a physician at Matson Family Chiropractic. I am authorizing them to proceed with any treatment that they deem necessary. Furthermore, any risk involved, regarding chiropractic treatment, will be explained to me upon my request.
There will be an office visit charge of $45 for all appointments that are not canceled 3 hours prior to scheduled visit.
