Your Chiropractor has an assembly line office and you don’t like it?
The fact of the matter is, many people love the speed of the office with a chiropractor who adjusts you and sends you on your way in 3 minutes or less. In fact, as a chiropractor and person who values my time, I love this type of office. In and out in a flash. I get the adjustment I need and no time is wasted on stuff that the chiropractor doesn’t deal with anyway.
That said, we all need to be heard. Especially when it comes to our health, emotions and future. Nobody wants to feel like they are being pushed through for the convenience of the doctor and staff. The bottom line is that if you don’t like the speed at which your chiropractor works, tell them. If they don’t listen, or can’t explain to you why the office works the way it does, go somewhere else. Chiropractic is no different than any other healthcare specialty, if you aren’t happy with the doc, leave.
As a chiropractor in Portland, Maine, I have struggled with finding the best balance. This is the message from the “inside”.
In our office, the whole week is broken down into boxes of time for different types of patients. We have fast times, slow times, new patient times, re examination times and the like. If people want to get in and out quickly, we schedule them in the fast times. If they like lots of chit chat and time spent asking questions and getting long answers, etc., then we schedule them in the slow times. This is the way that everyone gets what they want in our office.
Like in most hip cities, in Portland, Maine and the surrounding areas, there are hundreds of chiropractors to choose from. There is no need to not understand why your chiropractor has an assembly line office. And if you still don’t get it or like it, find an office that caters to everyone in an efficient way that has only positive effects. It can be done. It is done at Dr. Lou Jacobs’ office in Portland, Maine. Call Jacobs Chiropractic Acupuncture Center and schedule an appointment where you will be heard, you will be helped and you will NOT be rushed down the assembly line and spit out the front door….unless that’s what you want.
