What to look for when choosing a Santa Fe Chiropractor

  1. Check reviews. Not everyone has a five star rating and that’s OK. It’s virtually impossible to please everyone, all the time. Unfortunately, some of the negative reviews you’ll see are not even legit. Take a look at the bigger picture. If there are any negative reviews, do they seem out of context with the positive reviews? How many of the reviews consist of a rating but no review? Do the positive reviews seem to be genuine or do they consist of a few words such as: Great adjustment! Does the chiropractor have multiple reviews from various well-known and respected sources? Has the chiropractor proclaimed themselves to be “The Best” and does that coincide with what you’ve read in the reviews?
  2. Do a quality check for credentials by accessing your state licensing board’s website to confirm qualifications and to make sure no disciplinary action has been taken against this chiropractor in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
  3. Visit the practice website. Is it informative in layman’s terms or is the information presented hard to decipher and/or verbose. When you’re in pain and looking for a chiropractor, wading through a bunch of information is generally not appealing.
  4. Finally, you may want to make a few phone calls, perhaps starting with the chiropractic office in Santa Fe closest to you. Ask about appointment availability, treatment method and any other questions you may have. This is to see if you’re treated with patience, courtesy and respect by the doctor’s office.

At this point, you will likely have one or only a few candidates. Here are some tips to look for in your initial and subsequent encounters with the chiropractor.

The following may be warning signs:

Most importantly, your new Santa Fe chiropractor should be willing to refer you to another Santa Fe healthcare provider if chiropractic treatment is not producing positive results in a timely fashion and even be honest enough on the initial visit let you know whether or not you are truly a candidate for chiropractic care.
