“How Do America’s Patients Rate Their Chiropractors?”

Here’s some good news! It was very encouraging to see that a recent survey of chiropractic patients showed a high approval rating for chiropractic care overall. To quote the study from the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics:

“To evaluate consumer satisfaction with chiropractic care, 150 patients were asked to complete a questionnaire at one visit. The randomly selected patients were asked to rate nine various aspects of quality of care in one of five levels: excellent, very good, good, fair, or poor. The results of the study, published recently in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, indicate a high level of satisfaction with chiropractic care. The percentage of patients who answered “excellent” for the listed category are listed below:

Personal manner of chiropractor: 92%

Length of time to set up appointment: 85%

Technical skills of chiropractor: 83%

Length of wait at office: 76%

Time spent with provider: 74%

Physician explanation of procedures: 73%

The authors of this study note that every one of the respondents rated overall satisfaction either “very good” or “excellent,” and an amazing 96% claimed they would recommend their doctor of chiropractic to their family and friends. The only questions that received any “fair” ratings at all were those regarding office convenience and a physician’s explanation of treatment, while none received “poor” ratings.” If you are a patient who hasn’t been in for some time but you’re feeling the “creaky” aches and pains slowly returning, please give my office a call and we’ll try to help you as best as we can. It’s an easy call to make and we’re here to help!
