What Can I Expect


"Look well to the spine for the cause of disease." - Hippocrates

Going to the Chiropractor is a new experience for many of us. Maybe we've heard through a friend or have done some research online. It's possible that you are just fed up with living in pain and it's time to do something about it. In either case, your first visit to the NUCCA chiropractor will really be about getting to know the chiropractor and discussing your history, current condition and overall health goals.

As with any doctor's visit, you'll start by finishing some new patient paperwork. Upon meeting with the doctor, you'll discuss your concerns and expectations as well as have the chance to ask any questions you may have. We will perform a thorough NUCCA examination and most likely take a few x-rays to see what your current state is. Once this is complete, we'll take a look at the overall results of our conversation and the exams. Together, we'll come up with a plan of action which will begin when you are completely satisfied and ready to move forward.

We are proud to provide a state-of-the-art facility for the highest quality upper cervical chiropractic care available. It is one of our top priorities to protect the well-being of our valued practice members. Dr. Shah stays up-to-date on the technique, research and other methods to help patients and their families.  We are confident that you will feel right at home in our office as we welcome all practice members as if they were family.

If you would like to make an appointment, please contact our office by phone or email. Our office facilitates communications and emergency calls and appointments are available and welcome, especially for new practice members seeking help.

Health should be easy to deal with and affordable. Our policy is to receive payment at the time of service. We accept cash and/or check. We provide a claim form for patients to send to their insurance carrier for possible reimbursement from plans with out-of-network coverage. We are not in-network with any insurance plans.  

If you are unable to keep an appointment, we ask that you kindly provide us with at least 24 hours notice. We ask for this advance notice so that we can offer this appointment to another patient. A fee may be charged if a patient does not show up for an appointment without sufficient notice.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing our practice for your upper cervical chiropractic care.



 My husband and I came across information on your office at a Home Expo show one day. I encouraged my husband to have the test done that was being offered since he had been complaining about low back pain. They found that he had some issues and he made an appointment and included me. I have to say I wasn't thinking that anything would be wrong with me even though I have been suffering with neck and shoulder pain for years. I just attributed this to my job sitting at a desk all day. It turns out that I was much worse than my husband was. We came in and after my first adjustment I noticed an immediate different in the way I walked. I had torn my meniscus in September and had not been without knee pain since that day. And I have learned to just deal with my lack of energy. I got to the point that I was no longer exercising or taking my dogs for walks. I gained a lot of weight and just felt like I didn't want to do anything!

The initial adjustment was pain free. I didn't expect it to be as gentle as it was. There was no cracking or popping. I can't believe that adjusting that one bone in your neck could make such a world of difference.

I came into this experience a bit skeptical and have become a true believer. Thank you for helping me get my life back.
