1. Chiropractic Reimbursement and Patient Satisfaction

Dr. Sheri Russell is conducting an academic research project in conjunction with Endicott College that will provide greater insight into various options for patient service-fee structures that may apply to chiropractic patients that have insurance coverage for care versus those that do not. The questionnaire that you are being asked to complete, will also provide detailed information as to how and why you utilize chiropractic treatment and help improve delivery of chiropractic services in our evolving health care system. Results will be anonymous as to their source and only summarized data will be used by the researcher in assessing trends which are integral to the research project
We encourage you to participate in a detailed and speedy manner to assist in the processing of the results. Once the data is collected, a final determination of the outcome of this study will be presented. We will then promptly forward you a copy of the results so that your health-care decision making process can become more detailed.
Should you have any questions regarding the survey, please contact Dr. Sheri Russell at (978)927-2607 or via email at docsheri@msn.com
We thank you in advance for your assistance.
