Your Adjustment Appointments
Patients are seen by appointment only. Our office hours are 8:00am until 4:30pm, Monday through Wednesday with lunch from 11:30am until 1pm and Thursday hours are 7am to 2pm with lunch 11 to 11:30 am. The office is closed on Fridays, weekends, and major holidays. We strive to see our patients on time and we ask the same courtesy of our patients. If it is necessary to change or cancel your appointment, please call the office at least 24 hours in advance to allow us to make this time available to our other patients. During treatment, your appointment will be scheduled every 8 to 10 weeks and appointments generally last 30-45minutes. We do rotate morning and evening appointments as we cannot grant the request of most patients to come only after school or work.
