I met Dr. Rattiner at a local festival. I was offered a free massage, then asked for $20 to come in on a "special" three point testing to see if I had any misalignments in my spine. Upon entering the office, I was greeted by the receptionist, who I could see her entire backside, not very appealing. After waiting over 50 minutes past my appointment time, I was ushered into a back room. I almost left at that point. The carpet was disgustingly dirty, there were spider webs in every corner and the ceiling tiles were falling in. After another 30 minutes of sitting there, I had my three point check. He took my blood pressure, good. An acidity paper test, good. Had me stand on 2 scales, my weight distribution was off by 4 pounds. Not much to go on there. But, I did have tension in my neck so he started to feel my neck and said "Oh yeah, you definitely have a problem". I did not have insurance, the cost for exams and x-rays was $163. After the x-rays he said, "I really want to help you, but I have to look at your x-rays first, come back tomorrow". I went in the following evening and he showed me my x-rays, "Oh, it's bad, your neck is out of place by 17mm!". He told me I would need 12 treatments, physical therapy and another exam to the cost of $770. Then explained that he does not accept payments each time you come in, you have to pay for the entire treatment up front. I could, however, pay in payments with huge fees added on. There was no way I was going to pay all of this without ever having a treatment by him. He did try to bully me into the plan by saying "It will only get worse and in the future you may need surgery if you leave it untreated". I had read his reviews and was excited to go in for my consultation, but I would never refer anyone I know to this office.
