What to Expect…
We’re so excited you are interested in visiting the clinic and we know that, as with any new experience, there is a level of uncertainty on what you can expect. We at Dearing Chiropractic Neurology make it our priority to offer quality care centered around you! We invite your questions and are glad to partner with you to help you achieve your health and wellness goals. Before your first visit we would like you to fill out your new patient information packet on our online portal – this will be emailed to you at the time you schedule your visit. This secure portal will allow you to add your demographic information and health history, as well as allow you to sign our HIPAA and “Consent to Treatment” forms. Once you have completed these forms you are ready for your first visit.
On your first visit, you can expect to begin your appointment by spending 15-30 minutes with the doctor for an examination. It is important to have a solid understanding of your health and medical history in order to achieve the best results. We take great pride in getting to know you and the details that brought you to us. Once we have established a foundation of your past and current history, we will transition into a time of recommendation and then treatment.
After the examination is complete you will be recommended for certain diagnostic testing depending on the specifics of your case. The types of inhouse diagnostics can be found here (link). These tests allow us to track, assess, and develop a better understanding of your current state. Not all patients require these tests. However, if necessary, we will use these multiple times throughout your treatment as a tangible assessment of your improvement.
*If VOG testing is required, you will be asked to remove any eye make up*
After diagnostics are finished, you will be ready for your first treatment. If you have any questions about treatment, we will also answer them at this time and ensure that you know exactly what issues your specific treatment will address and what the treatment is. One of the most important parts of your first visit is scheduling the follow up. Obtaining optimal health is a journey, and while we do expect some immediate results, we typically want to see you again within the first 10 days of your initial visit. This allows us to give you a report of findings, monitor your progress, and continue to develop an in-depth plan to achieve your goals.
“Dr. Dearing looks at your health concern from every angle and devises a treatment plan specific to you. Even if surgery is what other doctors recommend, he starts with a clean slate and really listens to you to understand your goals. I highly recommend him for any health problem you have, as the first doctor you see. He’s been wonderful for me and my family.”

Forms of Payment
We proudly work with Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, UHC, UMR, and a few others for chiropractic services ONLY. We’ll file the claim so that you don’t have to worry about it. Note that your insurance likely does not provide the full payment of services, especially if you’ve not met your deductible. However, of the covered services, manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, and acupuncture (some insurers, not all), your treatment costs can go toward your deductible. If you prefer to self pay, that’s great! We will even file claims on your behalf. We’re here to serve you and help in any way we can with your insurance. We take all forms of credit and debit cards, as well as cash, personal checks, and HSA.
