Had to wait 3 wks for the doctor to read paperwork my Chiropractor's office sent in. Then had to wait another week to get in to see the doctor. I had met my deductible for the year so the procedure could have been covered entirely by my insurance, but it took her office staff 8 weeks to get the ball rolling. On 2 occasions I called to see if they were making progress - staff was very impatient. Dr. Chakerian is lovely - but you have to go through her staff to see her, and it isn't worth it.
