FAQs

Are you accepting new patients?

We are always accepting new patients! However, we do not take walk-ins. To schedule an appointment, call us anytime at (603) 965-3642. We will take basic contact info and set up an initial visit. We build time into that first visit for paperwork, so no need to come in early! First visits typically take an hour to an hour and a half.

What types of health insurance do you accept?

We accept Anthem, Cigna, Health Plans Inc., Harvard Pilgrim, Tufts, & United Healthcare. We do NOT accept Medicare or Medicaid. 

We find it best, when scheduling your first appointment, to send us a picture of your insurance card so that we can look up your benefits before your first visit. You can email us or text our office the picture. 

Do you adjust children?

Yes! Dr. Valerie and Dr. Kristin are both trained in child adjustment. They adjust babies as young a few weeks old.

Do you require weekly visits?

No. We believe that every body is unique and therefore should have a unique care plan! We have patients that need weekly adjustments and others that can schedule out a month or more. The doctor will give suggestions about how often you should be seen, but ultimately the decision is yours!

What techniques do you use?

Our doctors use Diversified, Thompson drop, Activator, and Webster techniques. At your initial adjustment, the doctors will explain how they adjust and will make sure that you are comfortable with the adjustment.

What is that popping noise?

The popping sound that you may hear during your adjustment is known as Joint cavitation. It comes from tiny pockets of air building up in your joints being released--which helps reduce the amount of pressure on the spine.

Do you require x-rays?

We do not require x-rays or a doctor referral. If you have x-rays that you would like us to look at, you can bring them to your visit and Dr. Kristin or Dr. Val can take a look! If after your initial visit the doctors feel x-rays would be beneficial, they will refer you out for them.

I can't find your office! Help!

We are located on Main St. in downtown Laconia, right above Greenlaw's music store. There is an entrance right past Greenlaw's. Go up the stairs and we are the first door on your left!

What is your cancellation policy?

For follow up visits, we require at least three hours notice for cancellations. If you are a new patient, we require 24 hours notice to cancel or reschedule your initial visit.
