What is Functional Medicine?
How do I become a new patient with Dr. Manlove?
We operate on a ‘program’ based model of care, and since that’s different than the ‘standard’ of care, we like to share information about our program based care before scheduling your first appointment with the doctor. We do offer a free brief consultation by phone or in person to answer your questions, to make sure this is the right place for you and to determine whether Dr. Manove will accept your case.
Does Dr. Manlove treat chiropractic patients?
Yes, bit .. . I treat you as a whole being. I often find that back and neck pain can have a component that requires a functional medicine approach to actually resolve the issue.
What should I bring to my first visit?
Please be courteous, and provide 48 hours notice for all cancelled appointments. This helps ensure that we can meet the needs of all of our patients who are waiting to get an appointment. There will be a $180 cancellation fee for no-shows.
Dr. Manlove does not bill insurance. Payment is expected at time of service. There will be a $180 cancellation fee for no-shows. We can email an itemized receipt for services at any time.
We make every attempt to stay on schedule. If you are late for your appointment by more than 15 minutes we will have to reschedule your appointment. Individuals who are late more than 3 times will only be allowed to schedule on the same-day. Please call us if you are running late so that we are able to accommodate others who need to be seen.
Out of courtesy for others, would you please turn off your cell phone when in the office.
Perfumes and other fragrances
As a courtesy to our chemically sensitive patients please refrain from wearing perfumes or using any fragrances when coming to our office.
Can Dr. Manlove be my Primary Care Provider?
Many patients use Dr. Manlove as their primary source of health care. Nevertheless,Dr. Manlove is an Integrative Medicine specialist, licensed as a chiropractor, does not maintain hospital privileges or operate as a Primary Care Physician. We recommend that you maintain your relationship with a PCP who accepts your insurance, provides same-day service, and can be on-board with your specialized care here.
What about Medicare?
Dr. Manlove is not a Medicare Provider. Medicare will only pay for acute chiropractic care. It will not pay for preventive, maintenance or wellness chiropractic care or for any therapies such as electrical stimulation or hot pack application. It will not pay for examinations, consultations, adjunctive therapies or any supplements or recommended products. Patients must sign an Advanced Benefit Notice (ABN) acknowledging that they wish to receive services even though they are not covered and that they agree to pay for services not covered by Medicare.t not to bill Medicare for services and you may not submit charges from our clinic to Medicare.
