What services and techniques does Dr. Dawson specialize in?
How much does a visit cost?

Cost is determined on a case by case basis.

Do you offer payment plans?

What insurance does Dawson Chiropractic take?

Dr. Dawson is a preferred provider with Blue Cross/Blue Shield and Kaiser Permanente. We will bill your insurance if you qualify for coverage as a courtesy service. However, we recommend if you are interested in knowing your benefits prior to your first appointment to call your medical insurance yourself since your contract is between you and your medical insurance company.

How would I find if my insurance plan covers chiropractic?

Your insurance plan should have a member services phone number located on the back of your medical card where you can request your chiropractic benefit services in your health care plan. Currently, Dawson Chiropractic is only a preferred provider for Blue Cross/Blue Shield and Kaiser Permanente, but that does not mean that your insurance will not cover services at Dawson Chiropractic.

If I have been in an auto accident, what would I need to bring to my appointment?

Dawson Chiropractic is required by OR State law to bill your auto insurance whether you are or are not at fault. You will need to provide us with your vehicle’s insurance company’s claim number upon your first visit.

Patients should plan 45 to 60 minutes per appointment once they have become established.
