1. How is Desert Dove different from a medical doctor?
Medical doctors are concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and removal of symptoms and symptom complexes, which are commonly categorized at diseases. Medicine takes apart the body and creates specialties for each part. It adheres to Newtonian philosophy which says the whole is made up of a sum of it’s parts. Each part is made up of smaller parts. If we can control the parts, we can control the system. Drugs are utilized to control the body by increasing, decreasing or stopping a body function.
Desert Dove sees the body as a perfect expression of input given and choices made. How we eat, breath, drink, rest, exercise, and think effects are current health state and level of balance or imbalance- harmony or dis-ease. Our body’s purpose and design is survival. Symptoms are a perfect expression of a body in a state of survival. Remove the root cause of the imbalance/interference and the body heals and repairs itself.
2. How is Desert Dove different from other chiropractic clinics?
There is no “popping and cracking” here at Desert Dove Health & Wellness Center. Through a mind/body technology called Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique, reflex points are held on the skull and the body in coordination with breath and memory experiences to release defense physiology, freeing the body to return to its original design of self regulating, repairing and maintaining.
A crucial part of increasing health quicker, better and faster is “homework”. Specific breathing exercises, along with an exercise called The EmPower March are given to each client.
3. How many visits to your practice do I make before my health problem is solved?
Most people notice a change in some area of their body within the first three to five visits. However, some issues are resolved within a couple visits. Energy, digestion, sleep patterns, ranges of motion, attitude perceptions.
Ultimately, healing depends on the severity of the injury or the chronicity of the problem, the toxicity of the body, and the patient’s willingness to do homework and change lifestyle.
4. Does your practice accept Medicare or Medicade?
Yes. Dr. Phillips is a Medicare-assigned provider. However, we do not accept Medicade. Things not covered by Medicare include exams, nutritional supplementation, massage, and detox foot baths.
5. Does my employer’s insurance cover fees at your practice?
Dr. Phillips is not with any network or group of providers. We can submit to your insurance for out of network benefits with no guarantee of reimbursement. We are a cash practice and fees are due at time of service. Please call us for more information: 480-899-3683.
6. I have heard that when you start working with a chiropractor, you have to keep coming many times a week forever. Are you all like that?
Most of our clients improve 80 to 90% in the first 4-6 weeks. Follow-up care is given for residual chronic and repeated patterns of symptoms when necessary.
7. How long will my first visit take?
The first visit will generally be 90 minutes. During that visit, we’ll assemble a comprehensive case history, an examination, video education, consultation, and treatment.
