I was under "corrective" chiropractic care for over 7 years in another state before moving back to Texas. After several months of putting off finding another chiropractor, I did a lot of research and chose ALC. I know of other chiropractors that don't know how to read an x-ray, much less explain it, and I wouldn't want anyone like that adjusting the most important area of my body.
As I said, I was under care for several years and when I saw my initial X-Rays with ALC, I cried. I thought I had wasted several years of chiropractic care because my spine looked worse than before I ever started. After 3 months of adjustments with ALC, my spine is in better condition than 7 years of care with another chiropractor.
In regards to others feeling like they were "cattle": when you need to ask the doctors anything about medications, treatment, diet or exercise plan, they take the time to answer your questions. I have never had an issue with them not answering my questions. They do move people through quickly, but I also appreciate that since I drive 30-45 min each way to get an adjustment.
In regards to other's financial statements: I paid out of pocket for my previous chiropractic care, as it was explained to me how insurance works with various chiropractic codes, and I was not opposed to paying out of pocket for Dr. Zaino. Additionally, many insurance based chiropractors provide unnecessary treatment only to pad your insurance claim because insurance pays the doctors so little for each office visit. They ask that your family comes to the report of findings so they understand why you need to make the investment in your health. That's what this is, an investment in your health. If you don't care about your health. then maybe ALC isn't the place for you.
Ultimately, I would and have referred ALC to others and I think they do a wonderful job in explaining the plan of care, why you need various treatments and they do care about your health and helping you to get to the best health possible.
