Dr Marc Rogers & Daughters | Coastal Chiropractic

Hello,

This is a picture of me at home with my two beautiful daughters: Sidney and Brooke. The first thing that I am passionate about is them. Being a relatively new father, is amazes me every day the look on their faces when I come home. There is no job more important than being a good dad! Before I tell you about my other passion I would like to tell you a story about a patient of mine named Carmine. Carmine came into our office after an accident. He was wearing leg braces on both ankles and walking with a cane. He was sent to us by his Orthotist, the guy who made his leg braces. After an examination and some tests we concluded that we could help Carmine. We put Carmine on a treatment plan of that consisted of regular weekly visits to restore the motion of the joints in his body and improve the function of his neuromuscular skeletal system. Carmine worked very hard and did not miss one appointment. He did the homework we gave him. He was positive when he came in for treatment. After a few months of care, we are very proud to say that he no longer wears any braces on his legs or walks with a cane. Please watch the video of me and Carmine and me at the end of this page.

Folks, I tell you that story not to impress you about me and how great our office is. I am telling you this story because I want you to know that if you are suffering in pain, I hope you don’t lose hope. I’m telling you because it is my PASSION to tell people about Chiropractic care and some of the great things it can do for people. You see, I have been a Chiropractor for 11 years and I was raised in Pinellas County. After a bad car accident in college, it was a Chiropractor that helped get me back on my feet. I still remember the day I called my parents and told them that I decided not to go to law school, that I wanted to be a Chiropractor. I graduated from Florida State University in 1994 and Life University School of Chiropractic in 1999. I am always attending post graduate courses in subjects such as lumbar disc decompression, traumatic spine injuries, and the latest research. I also am active with the profession and was President of the Pinellas County Chiropractic Society.

Sometimes I get patients in the office that are afraid or skeptical about Chiropractors. Maybe they went to one a long time ago or someone in their family did. They have a belief that we arent “real doctors” because we do not prescribe medicine. Some think that Chiropractors want you to come in for adjustments whether you need them or not! Most often, they have never actually seen what I do and are surprised by how easy and gentle it is. Numerous studies, like recent Workers Compensation study done in Florida said that,”After an analysis of 894 workers’ compensation cases, it was concluded that the preventive healthcare, predominantly and explicitly recommended by chiropractic doctors, is associated with lower disability recurrences.”

Instead of  recommending the same type of care for everybody, WE RECOMMEND WHAT THE INDIVIDUAL PATIENT NEEDS. In my office, we also have other things to help patients, like massage therapy (MM # 13310), physiotherapy, cold laser, X-rays, , AN AWESOME weight loss program, disc decompression, and rehabilitation. We have an Acupuncture Physician, Dr. David Simon. We get referrals from many local M.D.’s, and even have a few that come in and get adjusted! By doing the type of hands on work that we do, we keep improve the posture and function of the body. That way, you have a better chance in not aging poorly.

I always tell patients that our care is considered conservative care and usually should be tried first, before pain drugs or surgery. If we can’t help you, then we will refer you to someone else. Our care is affordable and we accept insurance like Blue Cross, United Healthcare, and Medicare… As a special offer for the internet, we are offering an examination, treatment, and x-rays (if necessary) for $100.00. Please mention this special on your first visit to our front desk. This service would usually cost as much as $270.00. I know that all of us read things like this and they come off like a sales pitch. The truth is, I wish that you already knew how great you can possibly feel and where my office is! But you don’t. So I am making you an offer in the hopes that you will consider learning more about what we do. Please know that I am offering you this price for quality care.

THE PATIENT AND ANY OTHER PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR TREATMENT HAS THE RIGHT TO REFUSE TO PAY, CANCEL PAYMENTV OR BE REIMBURSED FOR PAYMENT FOR ANY OTHER SERVICE, EXAMINATION OR TREATMENT WHICH IS PERFORMED AS A RESULT OF AND WITHIN 72 HOURS OF RESPONDING TO THE ADVERTISEMENTFOR THE FREE, DISCOUNTED OR REDUCED FEE SERVICES, EXAMINATION OR TREATMENT. FEE AT TIME OF SERVICE FOR A CHIROPRACTIC LIMITED EXAMINATION IS DISCOUNTED AT $75.
