Frequently Asked Questions
Whether you’ve been suffering from a chronic condition or your pain, injury, or problem just recently began, a chiropractic physician is the ideal first healthcare practitioner to consult. Unless you have an HMO insurance plan, there is no need for a referral to see a doctor of chiropractic, and our doctors can make an accurate diagnosis and provide you with a wide range of comprehensive treatment that will solve the underlying cause of your health problem. Our chiropractors are uniquely trained to offer a “one-stop-shop” boutique healthcare experience, by performing all of the following:
- Detailed history & examination
- Diagnostic testing as indicated
- Coordination & delivery of comprehensive treatment options
- Referral to the appropriate specialist or other healthcare provider when necessary
Our chiropractic physicians are highly skilled in the art and science of diagnosis of all human ailments and can determine the underlying cause or causes of your problem which may be primarily muscular, joint-related or skeletal, neurologic, or systemic in nature. The doctor will take a detailed history and perform a physical, neurologic, and orthopedic examination tailored to your specific symptoms. Depending on the specifics of your condition, the doctor may order additional diagnostic testing including bloodwork, X-Rays and/or MRI studies, or other specialized testing. Once an accurate diagnosis has been made, your chiropractic physician will discuss with you your various treatment options, which may include some combination of the many natural treatments that we offer such as:
- Chiropractic Adjustments
- Homeopathy & Natural Medicine
- Physical Therapy Services & Sports Medicine
- Massage, Myofascial, & Manual Therapies
- Cold Laser Therapy
Or if you prefer an integrated approach utilizing both natural and conventional medical treatment, then we will be happy to refer you to and/or co-manage your condition with the appropriate medical specialist or other health care provider. If your condition would be more appropriately managed by another health care provider, a prompt referral would be made. Contact us if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment.
Several factors are considered when formulating your treatment plan, including: the nature and severity of condition, when your initial symptoms first began, your diet & lifestyle, and your level of stress. Every case is different, but most patients begin to respond favorably within the initial week or two of care. We make every attempt to solve your health problem once and for all. We believe in educating you about your condition and your treatment options, so that you can make an informed decision about the type and frequency of care that you receive. We do not believe in pressuring our patients to receive excessive treatment or selling pre-paid plans of care that may not be necessary. All of our treatment plans are individualized to meet your specific needs. We only recommend tests and procedures that we believe are medically necessary, evidence-based, and in your best interest.
And because we emphasize patient education, you will become as self-reliant as possible. We believe that if we educate you about your condition and explain how to treat it yourself, you will recover faster and prevent future relapse or re-injury. We strive to encourage and motivate you to assume responsibility for your own health. This is why we have created and continue to update our Patient Resource Library, which provides useful advice regarding prevention, self-treatment, home exercises, nutritional recommendations, and health-promoting recipes. Once armed with this knowledge, you will be empowered to take control of your health, and not become over-dependent on the doctor.
Some of our patients with chronic, recurring conditions choose to receive ongoing care, and some will choose to receive periodic “tune-ups” and follow-up wellness visits, but most of our patients recover within several weeks or months, with no need for further treatment. Contact us if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment.
The amount you will actually pay for treatment will vary greatly depending upon your insurance plan. Since we are in-network with most PPO plans, most patients only have to pay a small co-pay of $0-$15 per visit. HSA and flex plans also typically provide reimbursement of our charges. If you are uninsured or have a high deductible, then you may need to expect to pay directly for some of your treatment. The cost of a new patient examination (see “Your First Visit” is around $100.00. The cost of a typical office visit including an adjustment is around $60.00. Other procedures, like the ones described above, may also be used depending on your specific problem. This means that the cost of a typical office visit will vary and would be discussed in detail after your examination has been performed. Payment plans are also available upon request.
Chiropractic and/or Physical Therapy Services Fees:
For your first visit for chiropractic and/or physical therapy services, the cost of a new patient examination ranges from around $80.00 – $150.00. The cost of a typical office visit including an adjustment is around $60.00. Additional charges would apply for other procedures, but a typical visit would cost approximately $60-$80, depending on your specific problem. So the cost of a typical office visit will vary and would be discussed in detail after your examination has been performed. We believe in educating you about your condition and your treatment options, so that you can make an informed decision about the type and frequency of care that you receive. We do not believe in pressuring our patients to receive excessive treatment or selling pre-paid plans of care that may not be necessary, but individualized payment plans are available upon request.
Since insurance reimbursement for homeopathy varies greatly, please call our office to discuss these costs. If you do not have insurance, or your policy does not cover homeopathy, then the following charges apply:
- Initial consultation (typically 3 hours) $450.00
To schedule an initial consultation, we require a $100.00 non-refundable deposit, paid in advance, at the time of scheduling. If greater than 72 hours notice is given, an initial consultation may be rescheduled.
- Follow-up visits
Follow-up visits are billed at a rate of $3.00/minute. They typically last 20 minutes, and are scheduled approximately once every 3-6 weeks during the initial 6-12 months of treatment.
Examples are listed below:
- Brief Follow-up (10 minutes) $30.00
- Typical Follow-up (20 minutes) $60.00
- Extended Follow-up: 40 minutes (for a typical simple new condition) $120.00
- Follow-up: 60 minutes (for a typical complex new condition) $180.00
Note: Most patients who choose a $100/month payment plan option for homeopathy services will be all paid up with a zero balance within 6-12 months.
Contact us if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment.
Yes. Almost all plans include some coverage for chiropractic care and physical therapy services. Before your first visit, we will call your insurance company to obtain a very detailed verification of your benefits. By doing this, we will know in advance exactly what is covered and what is not, minimizing any unexpected “surprises” from your insurance company. Whether we are in or out-of-network with your particular insurance plan, we will bill your insurance claims for you and await payment from your insurance company. You will only be charged initially for your co-pay, deductible, or the percentage of your share of your services provided.
If you have been injured in an automobile accident, we will be happy to work with your attorney and/or auto insurance company to get your claims paid. We will also work with your employer and insurance company to handle any worker’s compensation claims if you have been injured at work.

We make every attempt to make this process as easy as possible for you, so that you can focus on getting well again.

Headaches and migraines are common symptoms that can occur as a result of whiplash injuries or any type of motor vehicle injury. Headaches may appear when specific vertebrae in your neck are restricted and out of position due to the impact of an accident. Sprained neck muscles can cause pain to radiate to your head. Any injuries or traumas to your head can cause headaches and migraines. If you are experiencing headaches after your car accident, then you should get treated as soon as possible so that your headache pain does not become permanent. At Progressive Chiropractic Wellness Center we treat whiplash injuries so that you can become functional and return to normal.
We know how good our chiropractic care is, but we would prefer if you heard it from our patients.
I hurt my back at the gym and I had no idea who to go to for help. A friend suggested to see Dr. Ezgur and I was desperate. He turned out to be the exact the kind of doctor that you hope to find. He understood the problem quickly, gave me instant relief and was able to help me take the right steps to prevent the problem from repeating itself. To top it off, I felt like Dr. Ezgur really cared for my well being. His office is also easy to get to. It's close to the train and there is parking next door.
Dr. Ezgur and his team are great! Periodically I have back pain and a adjustment from Dr. E always does the trick. Dr. Ezgur takes his time and come up with individualized treatment plans for you to see the best result. Suzanna massage have you feeling like a new person packed with power. Keep up the good work!
From the moment I painfully walked in until I almost painlessly!! walked out of this practice, my experience today was excellent. From the entire staff to Dr. Ezgur himself, there was a very genuine, down-to-earth feel, as well as being very professional, of course. He fixed my husband’s back ten years ago, promised it would take x number of visits, stood by his word, and my hubby hasn’t had to see him since! I’ll recommend Dr. Ezgur and Progressive Chiropractic forever! 5 stars!
Not only do I get wonderful chiropractic treatments from Dr. Ezgur, but I cannot say enough good things about his massage therapists. Manny, Mara and Marc have such healing hands and are quickly able to pinpoint and release tension in my back like no other therapist has been able to do. I come out feeling relaxed and energized. Absolute best therapists I've ever been too and I look forward to my treatments each month!
Met with Dr. Ezgur today for the first time for my son. I was extremely pleased with how thorough he was! He had me thinking waaaaay back and really dove into my son's medical history for his homeopathy appointment. I am excited to work with him and I am excited to see what is in store for my son! Very hopeful!
A great place! Very relaxing environment. Dr. Ezgur is very smart, kind and you can tell he actually cares about your health and well-being (I once had a cold so he did acupuncture to help my head stop hurting!). Lauren and Chivette are funny and fun yet super professional and very smart ladies. AND MARK, Mark is a massage therapist there and he gives the very best massages that have made a huge difference with my various aches, pains, and problems. My only complaints are that it can be a little tough to get evening appointments at times unless you schedule pretty far ahead (I guess that is the price you pay to go to the best) and if you drive the valet is often pretty backed up, so plan some extra time for that.
