A. Anyone whose health has room for improvement can benefit from treatment offered at Cherubino Health Center. We offer individualized programs that are designed to improve your overall health and/or resolve specific health conditions.

Q. How do I know if I can be helped at your center?
A. The initial consultation with Dr. Chris, Dr. Ron, or another practitioner at the center determines this. You will have an opportunity to discuss your health history and get answers to your specific questions. Our goal is to determine:
- If we can help you
- Which types of alternative medicine are applicable to your case
- Where to refer you if you would benefit from treatment offered outside of the center.
Q. What types of conditions do you treat?
A. Each treatment plan is designed to address the specific needs of the patient. Therefore, chiropractic treatments for spine conditions may be indicated while alternative medicine procedures and treatment may be appropriate in another case.
Although the majority of patients we see need some form of spinal care, we commonly treat patients with a variety of issues. Alternative medical treatment is so effective, in part, because it espouses the idea that positive lifestyle choices can be preventive and curative to disease. At our center, we treat the entire person while tackling specific diagnoses.
Our type of chiropractic, holistic and alternative medicine is appropriate wherever there is room for improvement. The methods we have chosen to utilize and develop over the years are the result of treating thousands of patients with hundreds of different conditions.
Q. Once I start with treatment, will I need to keep coming forever?
Our treatments are divided into phases of care:
Treatment is designed to resolve specific problems or conditions as quickly and completely as possible. Once this is accomplished, treatment for that problem is no longer necessary. Some patients choose to continue with some level of preventive or wellness care long-term. This type of alternative treatment plan is designed based on individual goals.
Preventive care is desirable to some on a long-term ongoing basis and can be likened to regular dental cleanings.
Q. What is Preventive health care?
A. Preventive care is designed to help the body maintain a high level of health. Several of our alternative medicine and holistic techniques are capable of identifying problems before they become firmly established as disease processes. These kinds of imbalances, which are often asymptomatic in their early stages, are most easily treated and eliminated through this type of treatment. (more information on preventive health care)
Some people are in more obvious need of this type of care than others. People who work and live under high-stress conditions and those with chronic health conditions are prime candidates for this type of treatment. Ultimately, though, everyone can benefit from preventive treatment and it can be received at any frequency, dependent on goals.
Q. What if I have a condition that can’t be treated at your center?
A. We will try our best to help you with a referral to the appropriate people, places and resources. We are here to serve you and our community. We frequently make referrals and receive them in return.
Q. Does insurance cover your services?
A. Many insurances do cover our chiropractic services. Coverage varies from insurance company to insurance company and from policy to policy.
However, when it comes to holistic and/or alternative medicine, most insurance companies will not offer coverage.
Our staff is happy to review your specific insurance policy and explain your chiropractic benefits, including those related to automobile accidents or work injuries. Simply call the office with your insurance information on hand.
Q. Do you offer payment plans?
A. We do offer flexible payment plans with reduced rates available based on the type and length of care required. Our goal is to deliver the specific treatment that each patient needs, at a reasonable price.
Q. What are your fees and how do they compare to other practitioners and centers?
A. A current treatment fee schedule is available online and at the center. Service for service, we are the same or lower than other practitioners and centers in our geographical area.
Q. How do I know when I need your kind of health care?
A. An initial consultation is your best first step. This will enable us to discuss your health concerns in detail as well as answer your questions.
Remember, we are here to help you how ever we can, and are happy to answer your questions in whatever capacity we can.
