New Patients

What is the first step?

Welcome to {PRACTICE NAME}To book an appointment please call (403) 237-6000 and our receptionists will be happy to assist you. Please have a few dates and times in mind before you call in case your original choice is not available. Next, print and complete a New Patient form for the appropriate type of appointment you are going to make:

Please remember to bring this paperwork to your first appointment. If you cannot complete the New Patient form before your first visit please let the receptionist know at the time of booking and we will have the paperwork ready for you 15 minutes prior to your first appointment.

Do I need a Referral?

Although we always appreciate referrals, you do not need one for any of our services. However, when you book your appointment you will be asked if someone referred you to a specific doctor.

Does Alberta Health Care pay for my visits?

Alberta Health Care no longer covers chiropractic treatments. If you have extended benefits for chiropractic, massage or naturopathic medicine, then you will pay for your care on the day of your visits and receive an original receipt, which you may then submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement.

Do students and seniors get a special rate?

Yes you do, excluding Massage Therapy. Please call the office for rates.

Motor Vehicle Accident?

Please contact your insurance company and make sure you get the contact name of your claim adjustor, phone number and fax number to then give to our reception on your first MVA visit. Please contact our reception staff as soon as you have spoken to your insurance company and you will be instructed from there. You will be given a claim and/or policy number and an AB1 and AB2 given to you by either your claims adjustor or the receptionist at Core Health Centre. Your treatments will then be directly billed to your insurance.

Do I need to have x-rays for my visit? Do I have to pay if I need an x-rays if the chiropractor wants me to get them done?

No you do not require an x-ray to make an appointment for any of our services. If you are written a requisition to get an x-ray on your first visit, Alberta Health Care covers the cost so you do not need to pay. The two radiology labs we use are “EFW” and “Radiology Consultants” with locations just steps away from our clinic (located in Golf Canada Square or Eaton’s Centre), as well as many other locations to choose from.

What should I Expect?

When you arrive the receptionist will greet you. Please let them know your first and last name and which doctor you are there to see. If you have not yet completed the paperwork you will first have to complete this before the doctor can see you. You will then be shown to a room where the doctor will meet with you or will be asked to take a seat in the reception area where the doctor will come out to greet you. It is a good idea to wear comfortable clothes and shoes for your visit to the chiropractor. Your chiropractor may ask you to change into a gown.

How long will appointments take?

Initial consultations with our chiropractors are approximately 30-45 minutes. Follow up visits can vary, but are typically 15 minutes. Initial consultations with our naturopathic doctor are one hour. Follow-up visits can vary, but are typically 30 minutes. Initial consultations with our massage therapists require a minimum of 45 minutes. Follow-up massages vary and can be 30, 45, 60 or 90 minutes.

How often will I need to come in and how long will the appointment take?

Your practitioner will discuss a schedule of care, which will depend on your specific circumstances. We encourage our patients to have regular follow-up visits to maintain the progress they have made over time. Naturopathic appointments are scheduled on an individual basis, but generally include a monthly and/or yearly “check up.” Give our Calgary chiropractic office a call to schedule an appointment today!
