Do you provide health care for children?2019-06-03T19:43:26-04:00

Absolutely! We provide both chiropractic and functional services for children of all ages. We treat a child’s case just as importantly and individually as an adult case.

Parents seek corrective chiropractic care for their babies and children to maintain and prevent conditions from occurring. If a condition has already developed, specific spinal correction techniques can be utilized to prevent further deterioration and/or reverse chronic, long-term health conditions naturally.

For children, aside from chiropractic care, we serve them functionally for food allergies or more chronic health issues. Once we can determine the root cause of their health issue, we can customize an action plan to remove it and watch their resilient body repair itself naturally!

Is it bad to ‘pop’ or ‘crack’ your neck and back?2019-06-03T19:45:29-04:00

The ability to pop and crack is a sign that you spine is weak, unstable and at risk for developing additional health conditions over time. Specific spinal adjustments and the process of spinal correction will strengthen and stabilize spinal segments, preventing spinal deterioration.

If I have osteoporosis or have had back surgery, can chiropractic help me?2019-06-03T19:48:09-04:00

Yes, it certainly can. We have special instruments and a variety of techniques we can use to treat sensitive conditions like osteoporosis or back surgery.

Surgeries commonly add stress and promote nearby tissues deterioration that should be managed proactively. One of the most common reasons for additional surgeries is mismanagement or non-management of the effects of the first surgery. We can help treat the segments of your spine surrounding the surgically treated area, so it stays strong from top to bottom.

How can I become a patient at Triad Health Center?2019-06-17T11:32:03-04:00

The best way to determine whether we will be a good fit together is to come in for an initial consultation.  The initial consultation gives you an opportunity to meet with one of our case managers and our doctors.  We will listen to your needs and help determine what type of care you need in order to reach your health goals. Our doctors will then be able to tell you their plan for you and explain exactly how we can help you and the time needed to achieve results.  There is no obligation past the initial appointment to move forward with treatment.  The choice is up to you.  Our goal is to make sure you feel comfortable, loved and cared for.  But if you choose to seek treatment elsewhere, there is no obligation.

To start, reach out to us by phone or email to schedule your initial consultation.  Our team is fully trained to assist you and guide you to the best program based on your needs.  Our team can also help by answering general questions about becoming a patient at our office.

Call 336-288-4677, email staff@triadhealthcenter.com or let us know you’re interested here and we’ll be in touch with you soon.

We do offer online booking for Physical Medicine and Chiropractic Intake Appointments. You may book online here. Note: the $60 appointment fee is required at booking time to hold your appointment.

When I become a patient, how long will my treatment take?2019-06-03T19:54:28-04:00

This depends on several factors, including the complexity of your condition, how long you have had it, how much time, energy and attention you are willing to devote to treatment, and how well your body responds to treatment.

In general, health programs for chronic illness last between three and six months, but most patients start seeing improvement within the first month. Patients may elect to continue with a maintenance program after their initial treatment plan is completed.

After your Intake Exam, visit time in office is typically 15-20 minutes while receiving treatment.

Where can I find the Intake Paperwork for my appointment?2019-06-17T10:44:34-04:00

We’ll make it easy for you and link all of our intake paperwork packets here.  Only print and fill out the intake paperwork for the type of intake appointment you are scheduled for. If you aren’t sure and need more help, call us: 336-288-4677!

Are chiropractic adjustments safe?2019-06-03T19:50:01-04:00

Yes, they are very safe. There are thousands of published studies proving chiropratic’s safety and effectiveness. Our specialized evaluation and treatment techniques provide optimal results without dangerous invasive procedures or highly addictive drugs.

What chiropractic adjustment techniques are available?2019-06-03T19:51:56-04:00

Dr. Schwartz and Dr. Tucker provide cutting-edge Corrective Chiropractic care, which is mainly performed with hands-on techniques. They also utilizes gentle techniques using tools such as Arthrostim and Activator devices. Dr. Schwartz has advanced training in scoliosis correction through CLEAR Institute, and may recommend therapies and modalities in-office to prepare your body for the corrective adjustment.

What are the prices for the services you offer?2019-06-17T10:24:19-04:00

We do not accept every patient. We have a very specific application process to determine if you would be a good candidate for care at Triad Health Center. The application process starts with setting up an initial consultation.

Initial Physical Medicine Examination: $60 (60 minutes)

Initial Chiropractic Examination: $60 (60 minutes)

Initial Functional Medicine Consultation: $497 (120 minutes + in office testing)

Initial Nutrition Assessment: $250 (90 minutes)

If you are accepted into the program, price depends on several factors, including the complexity of your condition, the extent of lab testing required, the combination of supplements, herbs and other therapies needed during treatment, and the number of consultations you receive.

Because all of our care plans and protocols are completely customized on an individual basis, the prices range varies person to person. The first step is an initial consultation focusing on the biggest health complaints you want our help with.

Each initial consultation is between 1-2 hours with either Dr. Schwartz or Dr. Tucker. Following your initial consultation, we will be able to present our findings, care recommendations and price moving forward.

Will my Insurance cover your services?2019-06-17T10:49:02-04:00

The answer to this question depends on which program you are in need of:

PHYSICAL MEDICINE & CHIROPRACTIC PROGRAMS

Our practice is a participating provider with all major medical insurances, including Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Health Care, Aetna, Coventry, Cigna, MedCost, and Medicare. Other insurance providers may also be covered.  Please bring in your insurance card with a photo ID to your first appointment.  Our team will perform a complimentary verification for you to determine your individual insurance coverage with our practice.

Our practice does not accept any form of Medicaid.  However, we can provide you with an itemized bill with traditional ICD-10 codes and CPT codes so that you may easily file a claim with your insurance company yourself. Your insurance company would then reimburse you directly.

Additionally, our services are fully covered under most Flexible Spending Account, Health Reimbursement and Health Savings Account plans. Our testing and nutritional supplements are often reimbursable as well. You can call your FSA, HRA or HSA manager directly to find out the details of your plan.  We also work with Christian Health Share companies, such as Samaritan Ministries.


FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE PROGRAM

Insurance may cover some testing and services but not all.  This program in general is considered above the standard of care and therefore elective as far as the insurance industry is concerned.  We do everything we can to make sure Functional Medicine care is affordable and available to everyone!  All of our patients are working class, normal people who want to get healthy.

How about Lab Test pricing and Insurance coverage?2019-06-03T19:56:10-04:00

The costs vary depending on the lab test recommended. Our prices are much lower than other companies’ because we do not up-charge for any of our tests. You only pay the base cost directly to us.

We do need an initial appointment first so that we can get a detailed health history and get to know you (we cannot legally run tests on people who are not our patients), but also we can customize the test panels that would be the most beneficial for you as there are a few different variations available.

Depending on your specific health concerns, the panels that are best for you may be different than those for other patients.

How much will Functional Medicine cost?2019-06-17T11:01:59-04:00

Functional Medicine is not just for the wealthy.  Most of our patients are working class people who want to get healthy and feel great.  Our top patient bases are nurses, teachers and blue collar people who want to get healthy.

We do not accept every patient.  We only want to take on patients we believe we can improve their overall health.  The best way to determine whether you would be a good fit is to schedule an initial Functional Medicine exam and consultation with Dr. Schwartz.  This gives us an opportunity to learn more about your goals and needs, and gives you the chance to ask us any questions you might have. There’s no obligation past the initial consultation.  Then we can find out if a full Functional Medicine program with Dr. Schwartz is right for you.  During the comprehensive consultation, Dr. Schwartz will go over your health history in detail, perform several in-office tests to assess organ function, body composition and body’s toxic burden, and go over your past labs that you would send us before your consultation.  We would also find out if Functional Medicine is right for you, and if it is, in what capacity.

The cost for the initial consultation is $497.  This intake consultation is 2-hours 1-on-1 with Dr. Schwartz.  Following the consultation, Dr. Schwartz will explain if you are a good candidate for Functional Medicine, how we can help, and what his treatment and care plan looks like for you.

Price of your Functional Medicine treatment and care plan depends on several factors, including the complexity of your condition, the extent of lab testing required, the combination of natural medicines and other therapies needed, and the number of webcam or office visits you receive.  We offer flexible care plans as well as concierge Functional Medicine plans.  We do everything we can to make Functional Medicine affordable to the average person around the world.  Again, most if not all of our patients are normal, working class people who want to improve their health.

We love our job and take Functional Medicine very seriously and care for our patients deeply.  Working with them over the months they are with us, they become our friends and like family to us.  We are humbled and honored to be a part of their journey into health.

Do you prescribe medications?2019-06-17T11:05:41-04:00

No.  We do not prescribe or make recommendations about prescription medications or controlled substances.  Your prescribing medical doctor will manage all medications.  We use natural, noninvasive methods such as nutritional therapy, herbs, supplements, stress management techniques, chiropractic therapy, and lifestyle changes to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal function and health.

Is there a difference between supplements I can get a Walgreens, CVS, or a health food store and through your office?2019-06-03T20:09:46-04:00

There is a huge difference in the quality of supplements on the market today. Drug store brands are normally the cheapest, and when it comes to nutritional supplements, unfortunately you get what you pay for. Drug store brands use poor quality man-made materials, thus creating a subpar product. Furthermore, many of these brands contain fillers, preservatives and even artificial colors and flavors which are detrimental to health. Health food store brands are a step up from drug store brands and usually use more natural and better quality raw materials. However because supplements are not regulated by the FDA, there is still no accountability and its hard to tell which are best from the hundreds of brands that exist.

The supplements that we use in our office are professional brands. They use the purest raw materials backed by years of research and manufacture them with the highest technology to preserve and maintain integrity and purity of their ingredients. We only want the best for you, and so we only offer truly whole food supplements and herbs. These brands go against the most stringent guidelines and come with certificates of analysis so we know exactly where the nutrients and herbs are coming from. They are typically much more potent and therefore not available in stores. Furthermore, because these brands are used by healthcare professionals, the manufacturers have a lot more accountability.

Many of our products are also custom-made for you based on your results, which enables you to take less pills but get more needed nutrients as they are combined for your convenience.

It is of course your choice on where you get your recommended supplements and we never want you to feel forced to get them through us. We are happy to evaluate any brand you may already have and help you find the best option because quality plays a huge part in the success of your protocol.

Once I find out my body’s deficiencies and your recommendations for supplementation, do I need to take them for the rest of my life?2019-06-03T20:11:19-04:00

Absolutely not! Our goal is to find your deficiencies and fix them as quickly as we can. This usually requires supplementation for 3-6 months to get your levels in the correct range, but once they are there, you can maintain them with proper diet and a maintenance regimen of a good multi-vitamin if needed.

My friend is a client of yours and I want to do what she is doing. Do I need to schedule an initial consultation first?2019-06-03T20:13:21-04:00

We normally do an initial consultation so that we can get a detailed health history on each individual patient and recommend the testing and protocols that would be the most beneficial for each individual.

Depending on your concerns and goals, the tests that are best for you may be different than for your friend. Furthermore, a big part of our customized consultation protocol focuses on eating habits and food education so that you know which foods are best for your specific body, how to combine them and time meals properly. This process guarantees the most success and the quickest results with your personalized program.

I live outside of the Piedmont Triad / Greensboro, NC area but still want your help! What are my options?2019-06-17T11:04:09-04:00

We see patients from all over the world and find phone or virtual consultations using FaceTime, Zoom, Hangout or Skype very convenient. In fact, about 30% of our patients do their consultations virtually. When you first set up your appointment, we will email you an intake form which you can fill out and email back to us. If you are not email savvy, don’t worry, you can always send your filled out form by regular mail. As with an in-person consultation, we will set up a full 2-hours for your initial consultation. Everything we talk about in person we can talk about over the phone and any handouts would be emailed to you in advance to follow during our call.

All initial testing is done in your home prior to our call or during. All initial testing is very easy to perform with a little guidance from us.

More advanced future testing is completed with kits which you perform in the comfort of your own home, because most need to be done at a particular time of day. The appropriate test kits will be mailed to you and include everything you need to take the sample along with detailed instructions. Once samples (hair, saliva, urine) are collected, you simply mail them directly to the lab in a prepaid envelope. This makes it easier for all patients and you do not have to physically be at the office to do the tests. If a test requires a blood draw, we can direct you to a lab in your area.

If you do not live in the area, a virtual consultation can be a great way to get your health on track and you will get all the same benefits as our in-office patients. And best of all, you never have to leave your home.

We are currently working with clients all over North America, Europe, Central and South America, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
