Searching for a new chiropractor that is the right fit for you can be a daunting task. Here is a list of 5 things to consider that will help you narrow down your search for the best chiropractor:
- Experience: As you are looking for a chiropractor, I usually recommend looking more for the older chiropractors, because the first thing I always look for is experience. How long has this person been doing what they’re doing? How much real-life experience do they have? Not that the new doctors coming out of school don’t know anything, but experience is usually the biggest thing. Typically, if I was recommending my mom to a chiropractor, I would look for someone who had at least 5 to 10 years of experience.
- Online Reviews: Something else we can look at in the modern age are reviews. What are people saying about this doctor? Are people saying good things? Are other doctors saying good things? You want to make sure that there are a lot of good reviews. Every now and again you might see one or two bad reviews that pop up on anyone that could have had an unsatisfied customer, but as long as the majority of the reviews look good, I’m pretty happy with that.
- Office Vibe: I like to get a friendly vibe when I call into the office. I want to make sure that this staffer sounds organized. Do they know what they’re talking about? Do they seem friendly and happy? A friendly, happy environment is also going to be much better to get patient care in. If someone is stoic and very down tone, I might not be that excited about going to that office.
- Ease of Booking Appointment: Look at how the process is going when you’re booking the appointment. Do they seem organized? Is it easy to do, or are they tripping and stumbling over their words? That might be an indicator that maybe the office might not be the most organized.
- Specialty: Does the chiropractor have a specialty? In our office, we do a lot of pediatric, maternity and family care, so we tend to attract more of those types of patients. If you’re having your second child, then you might want to gravitate towards a chiropractor with more experience in that realm. If you’re trying to run ultra-marathons, well, maybe you might want to see a chiropractor with a different type of specialty, something more like a CCSP, which is a certified chiropractic sports physician. There are many different areas of focus.
Those are the top five things that I would look at. Make sure that the chiropractor has good reviews, that they’re reputable, they’ve been in the community a long time, and people are saying good things. Then from there it’s your job to decide if you get a good vibe about the office or not.
