FAQ’s / Fee Schedule
Patients start with an initial exam: $175
(We do not accept insurance but do take HSA/FSA accounts).
This is a longer visit to go over history, to perform a differential diagnosis and determine a treatment plan. Without seeing and diagnosing someone it is impossible to discuss possibilities. You are contacting us because you have not received the results you want from others- we do not operate solely off of some Western diagnosis you were labeled with. We need to determine why you are presenting with these symptoms / conditions.
After our initial exam & treatment we can determine whether we are a good fit to work together and whether you wish to enter into treatment – in which case your initial exam fee can be applied to the cost of your care plan. In attempts to be up front on what is required in regards to time and money we list our programs and requirements below. True change takes time, effort and commitment. We have limited time and space – our clinic is completely committed to those who commit to themselves and their well-being. We have found that this creates the best work environment and yields the best results for our patients.
Since any true change takes time and some commitment to treatment we offer discounted pre-paid packages. Otherwise single visits may be purchased without discount at time of service. Email us if you would like to setup a short consult to determine whether we feel we can help you. This is not an initial exam or treatment- email us thru the contact us page with an outline of your case and we will get back to you at our earliest convenience.

Orthopedic/Pain (Orthopedic Acupuncture / Dry-Needling / Estim / Cupping / Active Release / Functional Movement & Reflexive Neurologic Training). At $150 a session our orthopedic sessions are a great value- it only takes 1 visit to see our program combines many different modalities which results in unparalleled results. Realistically most conditions require several visits, we recommend starting with 1/2 course or 5 sessions. Because we combine several approaches these sessions are the most demanding on us in regards to time and effort. Our clients who complete their course and follow our home programs rarely need follow ups. This includes various systems of acupuncture, manual therapy (ART, Massage, Guu Sha, Cupping) and a complete rehab program for posture and stability.

We do not settle in the development of our skills and knowledge, you need not settle for less than clinical excellence. We do not accept insurance payments. The majority of conditions we treat and therapies we use are not covered by insurance. Our clients choose us because they recognize the unique combination of superior treatments we offer is a complete and total package in healthcare and wellness not limited to what insurance will reimburse. Or like many people who found us, they had minimal or insufficient recovery utilizing traditional Physical therapy, Chiropractic, Massage and / or other Acupuncturists. You are treated by Michael himself and not handed off to an assistant. We do provide super bills that client’s may submit to their insurance for possible reimbursement. Many clients use their HSA and FSA spending accounts. We do accept some Personal Injury Liens where fault has been established on a case by case basis and we will accept MedPay for immediate reimbursement, not on attorney lien. Most people learn or realize they would have saved time and money with our approach after considering the limited care and countless visits to many other providers. Treatments at Makari Wellness are a great value if you value getting the best care and getting the best results possible in the shortest period of time and visits. Our reviews speak for themselves. What is your time and getting back to your life worth?
Client’s interested in treatment may email us an outline of their condition (Click Here) But in truth, only after performing the initial exam visit do we have any knowledge with which to speak on someone’s condition / diagnosis. We have a busy clinic and currently do not offer consults (we need to do an examination!) if we believe cannot help we do not charge- if you wish to email a brief outline we will give a brief response. Patients should schedule initial exam to to determine if we can assist you. We will let you know if we think we can help you. Since we specialize in many conditions that Western Medicine has no treatment for and complex conditions that have failed to respond to conventional treatments (Physical Therapy, Western, Chiropractic, even other Acupuncturists), our treatments are quite different than what people have experienced. We start with a combination of examinations rooted in modern physical, neurological and traditional Chinese medicine to identify what could be the cause and set forth a combination of treatment strategies to address your health concerns. Our success rests in the fact our treatments combine what we found to be the most effective therapies of several professions- true integration. Please read our google and yelp reviews (for both locations). New patients may schedule an actual clinic visit online. This is a longer consult to go over medical history, expectations, assessment forms, and clinical outcomes and introductory treatment. . Each therapy track: Neurological / Stroke, Vision, Orthopedic Pain, and Internal Medicine has its own cost based on the time and treatment modalities involved. Initial examination and treatment is $175, the cost of which can be applied to overall treatment program once it is determined.
How should I prepare for my first visit?
Wear loose comfortable clothing which can reveal the knees, elbows, back and abdomen. Orthopedic / Sports medicine clients should be prepared to perform basic movements and rehab exercises. Bring all your pertinent medical information: MRI reports, OCT Scans, etc.. We will then present a treatment strategy if we believe we can help you. At that time we agree to work together, the initial visit fee can be applied to your treatment plan. Make sure you have eaten a good meal and give yourself plenty of time to arrive 10 minutes early so you are not stressed or late. Paperwork is completed online before your arrival using a PC or tablet (do not use a phone to complete your online paperwork).
How should I dress for my visit?
Wear loose comfortable clothing that will allow for exposure of your affected are. Be prepared to expose your extremities up to the shoulder or mid-thigh. You may be asked to remove clothing and put on a medical gown if treatment requires an area of the torso to be exposed.
