Sign a Contract?

We are frequently asked a question that is actually quite troubling to me.

Signing a Contract - Nashville TN - East End Chiropractic

The question is: “will I have to sign a contract to get care in your office?” Another variation of that question is, “how do I get out of a contract that I have signed with another chiropractic office?”

We do not require our patients to sign a contract for care.  We do not require up-front payment for multiple visits.

We only charge fees for services rendered.  We only prescribe treatment that is necessary, no more, and no less.  Each patient is different, requiring a different treatment plan based on the patient’s NEED for care.   We do not have a “package” to sell you for “unlimited visits,” because most patients do not need an unlimited number of visits.  In fact, part of being a doctor is prescribing the right amount of care.  Not too little, not too much.  Furthermore, if the patient is not progressing at a satisfactory rate, this individual should have the freedom to seek care somewhere else, without the burden of having signed a contract.

It is not illegal for a practice to do this.  However, it does bring up some ethical questions. It is very important to question the motive of any contract BEFORE you sign it.  Remember, a contract is typically written for the benefit of the person writing the contract, not the one signing the contract! Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you’d like to discuss setting an appointment for care. We also appreciate any feedback.
