ABOUT OUR FEES:

Just like any other doctor, we do not know what we are going to need to do or how much it is going to cost until we see you.  However, most insurance is accepted. If you would like, we will be happy to provide you with a copy of our fee schedule during your first appointment or FREE 15-minute Phone Consultation**15-Minute Phone consultations are to discuss pricing and if our treatments are right for you only. Over 15-Minutes is not a consultation, but requires an appointment. A first appointment is comprehensive and discusses your medical history and specific case. They may take on average an hour to an hour and a half. We spend more time with our patients, so they spend more time being healthy..

If you know you do not have insurance that covers acupuncture, but would like us to try to bill your insurance, you may pay your bill up front and will be credited should insurance cover part or all of your visit. Unfortunately, this is the best and the only way to know if your insurance will cover other treatments offered such as injection therapy.

For patient’s without any insurance please schedule your FREE 15-minute Phone Consultation* and we would be happy to go over pricing for your specific case.
