Frequently asked questions

How many visits will I need?
This is variable depending upon what is being treated and how extensive your treatment needs to be. Our goal is to bring you to optimal health so that you won’t need to continually return.
What is the difference between licensing and board certification for a physician, and do you have any of these?
Physicians are required to be licensed to practice medicine in the U.S. by the licensing board in each state they wish to practice.
A board certified physician has completed an additional training program in a specialty and has passed a rigorous exam to assess his or her knowledge, skills and experience to provide quality patient care in that specialty.
In my case, I am licensed to practice medicine in Texas, and I have two board certifications. The first one is Family Medicine and the second one is Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine/Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine.
