Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: I can see “DrC” works by “appointment only” – do I need to be on time? 

A: DrC is intent on serving You as well as he possibly can – each and every visit – while respecting your time and that of others. You would do well to be on time, as otherwise the time he can serve you in will likely be compressed. If you see you are running late, you can use the link (in the e-mail confirmation received when your appointment was made) to cancel your appointment and set up a new one. There might even be openings a little later that same morning (or afternoon)!

Once I have PRE-Paid for care (or I have signed up for a MEMBERSHIP) –


Q: How can I (cancel and) RESCHEDULE an appointment I made previously? 

“I love the online scheduling at Genesis Chiropractic!” – BG, Practice Member

Q: How can I make a WIDGET to make my access to scheduling even Easier?

Q: Should I ring the doorbell when I arrive?

A: If the sign on the door says “OPEN” there is no need to ring, simply walk in! 🙂

Q: What should I do when I arrive for my Adjustment?

A: After “Doc C” greets you warmly, look for an available Adjusting Table, and set your personal belongings – keys, BELTS wallets, earrings, necklaces, watches, et al. – on the little (dark cherry) “wall table” near your chosen Adjusting Table. Then relax on the Adjusting Table prior to your life-enhancing Adjustment!

Q: Do I lay Face Down, or Face Up when first laying down? 

A: Most of the time, DrC will check you Face UP first, then transition you to Face Down. Some individuals however, do better starting face down. If you don’t remember exactly how Doc C has been proceeding with you,  DrC may queue you by tilting the headpiece DOWN so you can lay face Down. HINT: Look at the headpiece – does it tilt UP? Lay face UP. Tilts DOWN? Face DOWN. 🙂

Q: I came for my scheduled Adjustment, yet see a lot of people outside of the practice, should I wait for them to get Adjusted and leave before going in?

A: While that might seem like a very thoughtful and considerate approach, you are better off walking in to the office – even if it is to simply say “Hi Doc, I’m here!”and will be waiting just outside!” Sometimes, the folks you see may simply be early (waiting to be seen after you) or they may simply be waiting on a family member to be seen (remember DrC sees entire families)! O:-)

Q: What if I’ve had something happen (like a fall or a sprain) – do I book a routine visit, or..?

A: If you suspect we may need a little more time to evaluate your NEW Condition, please do reserve a little more time by selecting a “FAMILY (2-3 MEMBERS)” Appointment so that we might better Serve you! 🙂


  • Eat at LEAST three meals a day (5 would be ideal) – Organic and local when possible
  • Eat REAL — not processed — foods (Preferably, prepared at home)
  • Stay away from sodas, artificial sweeteners like aspartame (yuck),
    and MSG (a neuro-TOXIN!)
  • If at all possible, have your meals at the same time every day
    (your CELLS – including those of your digestive tract – understand routines!)
  • Incorporate MOVEMENT into your life:  include aerobic work, strength training, and flexibility work (stretching – a LOT of stretching!)
  • Get some sunshine and fresh air EVERY day! (Even if only several minutes!)
  • Get at LEAST seven hours of sleep every day (naps count) and sleep in once a week
  • Get checked for subluxations EVERY 7 (-10) days, to keep not only your joints healthy for a lifetime, but your nervous system subluxation (interference)-free;

    immune system, and HEALTH.
  • Get right with your Creator, and ASK Him to help you engage in the ACTIONS needed to nurture your dreams!

I thought I could never practice soccer again after suffering from knee pain for over a year… “Dr. C” treated me and in a short time I have been able to train again – with no pain!
I like how he knows how everything is connected in the body and what to do.
