Hey, River Valley! Let’s meet at SmartCare!
If you live in the River Valley area, Dr. Cory now takes patient appointments from an office inside SmartCare Physical Therapy in Dixfield.
As of Monday, October 2, 2023, I will add a second day of the week at the SmartCare PT office.
Monday 7 am – 12:30 pm Wednesday 8 am – 4:30 pm
After 8 years of house calls in the River Valley area, I can no longer efficiently drive to everyone. To avoid turning away patients who need care, I am cutting the drive time and seeing patients in the office.
Utilizing the office space allows me to remove the travel time and the “setup and take-down” times needed for house calls from the equation in the River Valley.
OPEN MONDAY AND WEDNESDAY STARTING OCTOBER 2, 2023
Pay with check, cash, and credit/debit cards.
Health Savings Accounts (HSA) and Flex Spending Accounts (FSA) are accepted.
Detailed receipts with the information requested by your insurance carrier for self-submission are available upon request at the end of the active care plan.
Just so you know, some insurance companies might not accept out-of-network services for reimbursement or may have a separate deductible for out-of-network care you choose to pay for.
Dr. Cory is a fee-for-service provider, which means you pay for each visit at the time of service.
When you book your first appointment, you will complete the steps via email to create a secure patient profile.
Once you have established yourself as a patient with Dr. Cory St. Denis, your first appointment will involve a thorough review of your medical history and a chiropractic examination. This examination can include measurements of your height, weight, blood pressure, pulse, and respiration. Additionally, orthopedic assessments and various neurological tests may be conducted to determine if chiropractic care is necessary or appropriate. After the examination, you will receive recommendations, and if deemed necessary, you will receive chiropractic care.
During any necessary follow-up visits, Dr. Cory will evaluate your progress and provide a specialized session based on your needs.
1: Active Chiropractic care plan – This recommendation comes when a burst of appointments is required to provide active care. This is *generally 4-6 adjustment sessions or 4-6 weeks of weekly adjustments.
2: Pro-Active Chiropractic care plans: Patients can elect to continue with wellness-minded visits after completing an active care plan. These are usually once-monthly visits scheduled six months to 1 year in advance. These appointments focus less on chiropractic services and more on movement or nutrition programs, brain training, stress reduction work, or other long-term strategies for healthier living.
If you are over the age of 65, Dr. Cory will discuss with you how medicare would handle your situation based on your examination findings. Medicare does not cover the initial examination appointment for any chiropractor.
I was a kid who couldn’t sit still during class, spoke more than I listened, and had more busy energy than I knew what to do with. The adjustments were helpful to my sports performance, but what surprised me was in school, I was much less distracted because my body was so calm. It was noticing this brain-body connection that drove me to study the brain.
I became a Doctor of Chiropractic in August of 2014, and from there, I moved to Maine. I have been practicing to master the thoughtful application of chiropractic and how appropriate care can positively influence brain function.
Whether you see me for a house call or over at SmartCare in Dixfield, I will provide you with the same quality chiropractic session based on your needs. My focus will be to help you get your brain and body working together to help you thrive.
