When I first opened my office in the South End Racquet and Fitness Club back in 1997 we were an all cash practice, accepting no insurance patients.
The main reason why I did not take insurance back then was because I didn't know how to bill it out and I did not want to deal with all the paperwork involved with treating insurance patients as it took away from me focusing on patient care.
However, one day an ILWU patient came to my office and asked if I took his insurance. I told him, "No, I'm sorry I can't help you."
He did not take that response for an answer and asked if I would make an exception to my policy.
I told him, "No." However, he kept pleading with me to make an exception for him.
I couldn't say no anymore and told him I would.
That was 23 years ago and since then I have been treating ILWU patients ever since that day.
Working on the docks can be very demanding and hard on the body.
Lashing, operating the cranes, and driving the other utility vehicles that go with the job can irritate the nerves exiting the spine, cause building up of adhesive scar tissue in the muscles and even create herniated discs.
I have been successfully treating these conditions and musculoskeletal problems plus more for the past 23 years. We have kept many ILWU patients and their families functioning at their best and helping them to stay productive on the job.
We would love the opportunity to do the same for you.
Contact our office to schedule an appointment or if you would prefer to meet over our telemedicine platform we can do that as well.
We look forward to meeting you soon!
