What type of treatment does Dr. Lebowitz employ?
Dr. Lebowitz brings alternative and mainstream treatment methods together, primarily combining applied kinesiology, nutritional biochemistry, functional neurology, and soft tissue therapy. He combines nutrition, acupressure, chiropractic, and craniosacral therapy with principles of neurology, biochemistry, and physiology, to create a clearer picture of the problem and how to fix it.
So instead of having to hunt from one doctor to another until you find one that can help, you’re being treated by one doctor whom has the knowledge of several doctors put together.
How Long Are Appointments?
A 90 minute initial appointment is necessary so treatment may begin upon the first visit. Dr. Lebowitz will spend a lot of time with you so you may begin to feel better after your first appointment. A follow-up visit is typically scheduled for 45 minutes the following week, but could be longer depending on your initial visit.
What are his fees?
Dr. Lebowitz does not accept insurance but will give you the insurance codes needed for you to submit for possible reimbursement. He charges by the time spent with the patient, and estimates can be given if you call our office.
Our patients pay us at the time of the appointment, and are given all the necessary forms to submit to his or her insurance company. Please be prepared to take care of the charges before you leave. We accept cash, check, and all major credit cards.
Can I speak with Dr. Lebowitz before I come?
Under certain circumstances, he can speak with you for a brief discussion if you have specific questions about your issue(s). Email is much easier and faster. DrNoahLebowitz@gmail.com
Does insurance cover his charges?
That depends on your insurance company. Dr. Lebowitz is a chiropractor, so if your insurance covers chiropractic then it is likely that you will reimbursed for his services to the extent that your policy covers. He does not participate in any insurance plans. Therefore, he would be considered a non-participating provider or “out-of-network” with your carrier.
You are responsible for the charges incurred at the time of your appointment. We give you the paperwork for you to send in to your insurance company. If they reimburse for the services provided, they’ll reimburse you directly.
So you don’t bill my insurance company for me like my other doctor did?
No we don’t. For the quality of time Dr. Lebowitz spends with you, his hourly fee is much less than the average chiropractic or medical physician. We leave your insurance needs up to you.
Does he use muscle testing?
Yes, but from the average person knows about muscle testing, or from what you may have been exposed to, the type of muscle testing Dr. Lebowitz uses is much more comprehensive and complex than what most doctors use. Unfortunately, there are a lot of physicians and non-physicians that are either not qualified to perform muscle testing, or are using generalized bogus forms of the technique. Muscle testing, as performed in our office, is a major part of the neurologic assessment process. To help you, Dr. Lebowitz looks at your medical history, lab tests, physical exam findings, neurological exam findings, and other criteria. He uses specific neurological muscle tests to help him understand what is going on with you, and how to treat the problem most effectively. Muscle testing, when used appropriately and by a qualified, skilled physician, is a powerful tool that aids in individualized, specific treatment.
Why doesn’t Dr. Lebowitz see me as frequently as other DCs?
Dr. Lebowitz has seen that subluxations (vertebral misalignment) are often a secondary issue caused by a deeper underlying dysfunction. By getting to the root of the cause, instead of just temporarily masking it, you should see better results while coming in a fraction of the frequency seen by most DCs.
What adjusting method does Dr. Lebowitz utilize?
Dr. Lebowitz is a chiropractor so he has been trained on the techniques and benefits of manual adjusting. In school he was trained to detect subluxations (misalignments in the spine) and adjust (“crack”) the spine. I have trained in multiple methods to adjust the spine including: Diversified, Gonstead, Thompson, and Activator techniques, in addition to taking other adjusting seminars. Whenever treating a subluxation I look at it often as a symptom and not the cause of a disorder. With this in mind and utilizing the training I have received I try to get to the root of what caused the subluxation and fix that, in addition to any needed adjustments. By doing that it allows me to get to the root cause of the issue and achieve longer lasting results.
