Frequently asked questions:
Do I have to be an athlete to see Dr. Jeff?
No you don’t. Dr. Jeff treats all types of injuries. Dr Jeff is also an endurance coach and 8 time Ironman Triathlon finisher, so he works with a lot of athletes.
I am an athlete, why should I see Dr. Jeff?
Because Dr. Jeff is also an an athlete and therefore he can relate to what you are going through.
Why does Dr. Jeff answer his own phone?
A few reasons, I (Dr Jeff) used to be in a large group medical practice and as time went on we got bigger and busier. Bigger and busier is not always a good thing. We you are seeing a lot of patients, you don’t have much time to spend with them. When you are busy you have to hire assistants to work on your patients and you need more office space, which all leads to a higher overhead. I just got tired of it, so I decided to scale down and take a much more personal approach.
Now, my patients deal with only with me. No assistants, no office managers, just me and my patient. My goal is not to as many patients as I can in a day and since my overhead is so low (because of not employees); I don’t have to see a ton of patients in a day. This allows me to spend more quality time with my patients.
Anytime you have a question or need help with something, you deal directly with me.
Will I be set up on a long treatment plan?
No. Our goal is to get you better and back being active as fast as possible.
Will I need an x-ray?
That depends on your specific history and examination. However, we do not take x-rays on every new patient. If x-rays are need, we will refer you across the street to a radiology clinic where a radiologist will take and read your x-rays.
What type of conditions does Dr. Jeff treat?
All types of pain and injuries. Since Dr. Jeff is also a triathlon and endurance coach he sees a lot extremity injuries. We actually treat more knees and feet, than backs.
Will I be able to get treatment on my first visit?
More than likely, yes, unless something come up doing the exam. Unlike some clinics, we do not have you come in for an exam and x-ray, then schedule you to come back for a report of finding.
