Concierge care is a term that describes personalized services that are provided outside of the traditional office setting. Concierge care can be used not only for for acute injuries and chronic pain, but increased athletic performance, quicker recovery, increased energy and focus, and stress management. That is why this is often a way of life for executives, politicians, professional athletes and really anyone who has high demands and little time.
There are only a select number of patients that Dr. McCleary will take on for concierge care. This is to ensure you have the best possible experience and the highest level of service. You can expect to still have access to referrals for imaging, labs, and to other specialists as well as to the majority of services are available in office such as chiropractic care, acupuncture, Reiki, corrective exercise instruction, yoga instruction, consultation regarding diet and nutrition, and soft tissue work although some of the specialized equipment that the clinical setting can provide would not be available when being seen outside the office. Some of the benefits of concierge care are:
- availability at non-traditional appointment times
- comprehensive services for one set fee
- a more private setting
- continuity of care (with other providers such as your doula, massage therapist, personal trainer, etc.)
Concierge care is often provided at:
- private residences
- sporting events
- performance venues
- home births
Common Questions About Concierge Care
Will my insurance pay for my services when I do concierge care?
No. Insurance does not cover services provided by a chiropractic physician outside of the office setting. Maintenance and wellness care are non-covered services with most insurance plans. Cash, check, and credit cards as well as health savings accounts are some of the options for payment.
Can I get concierge care when traveling outside of the state?
Yes and no. Dr. McCleary is licensed to practice chiropractic in the state of California and in the state of Missouri. She can also apply for a short term "travel to treat" license in most states for special events that may arise. This may work well for those who know some of their travel plans in advance.
Is massage therapy offered?
No. Dr. McCleary is not a licensed massage therapist (LMT) so massage therapy is not an offered service. She is trained in various soft tissue techniques to address a certain area of dysfunction including acupressure, trigger point release, proprioceptive neuromuscular stretching techniques, active release, and instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization. If traditional massage therapy is something an individual is interested in, a referral may be provided to an LMT that will do "out calls".
Can anyone get concierge care?
Yes and no. Concierge care is not limited to the "rich and famous" although treatment outside of the clinical setting is not always appropriate. Dr. McCleary will be the only one that can determine if she will be willing to take on an individual for concierge care.
How long is a typical session?
A session is based upon the services needed on that particular day. An average session will typically run 60-90 minutes.
