What should I wear for my visits?
Loose-fitting clothing in general is very helpful. Pants, sweats or shorts work well for men and women. Elastic waist bands are helpful, but not required. Tops should allow for easy access to the neck down to the collar bones (leave the turtle-necks at home).
It’s best not to wear a dress, as I often use the legs for muscle testing or orthopedic tests.
For upper back work, reversing a blouse so it opens in the back usually works well. For shoulder work, a sports bra is an option. I have a couple of hospital-type gowns to use if necessary. They look dorky, but I won’t tell anyone!
Do I need to take off my clothes?
No. While I usually need to see the areas that are bothering you, wearing the type of clothing suggested above will allow for that 95% of the time. Whatever the case, your concerns will be respected.
Is your office handicapped accessible?
Yes. There is a small driveway and special parking place to the right of the front door, accessible directly from Siskiyou Blvd. The front entrance allows for wheel chair entry, and there are no steps inside. If you park in the lot in back of the building, use the sidewalk around the right side of the building. It’s wide enough for a wheel chair or walker.
How does your Sliding Fee Scale work?
My regular fee is $60 for a half-hour and $120 for a full hour.
If that is more than you can realistically afford on any particular visit, you are free to contribute what you can that day, down to $30 for a 30 minute visit, or down to $60 for a 60 minute visit.
For another option, please see “Fees & Insurance” under Dr Dane’s Practice for information on the package discount.
Do you take x-rays in your office?
No. I send people to Ashland Community Hospital for x-rays or lab work.
How many visits will it take for me to feel better?
This depends on many factors. Most of my clients experience significant improvement within 1-3 visits. After your free consultation, I can usually tell you if more visits will be needed to achieve your goals.
