This office is the least professional Chiropractic office that I have ever attended. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE THESE PEOPLE YOUR MONEY. They will prey on your ignorance. I have received Chiropractic care for years (and even worked for one), so I am quite familiar with the techniques, care, and pricing. Quite early into the experience, I knew that they were trying to sell me a load of malarkey. The reasons I recommend not using them are as follows: 1. The doctor's wife, Mindy, is the patient educator on staff. She is a school teacher by trade and has ZERO medical training. She actually made me read the IRC brochures aloud to her (like a student) to "educate' me about Chiropractic Care. She was well aware of my familiarity, so I'm still unclear what the purpose of this assignment was. I can only guess this is how the grooming process starts for a person who is new to Chiropractic, and will be taken advantage of here. In the two hours I wasted in this location, I did not see the doctor, and was not adjusted. That is unheard of in a legitimate office. This office has no respect for your time. 2. Instead of having the doctor perform an X-ray to look at my vertebral bones (or even perform a palpation), the patient educator took photos of me with her iPhone to then be analyzed by an app. Chiropractors do use these apps at health fairs, but not in office when an X-Ray machine is available. She also measured my left/right cervical turning radius and told me I was significantly restricted. This was the first time I have ever heard this in my entire life, despite seeing many doctors. Of course, my assessment should have been performed by Dr. Schiermyer. This office does not care about your piece of mind. 3. In my final 15 minutes in the office, the patient educator came to tell me the bad news. I was basically falling apart according to her husband (who was too busy to meet with me directly), and it was a miracle that I was not in chronic pain. The only way to get me properly aligned was if I came in 3 times a week for treatment for several months on end. The bill for all this service was $6000 and it would all need to be paid up front (she assured me that this makes it easier). I literally laughed in her face and told her that is NOT how Chiropractic care works. You co-pay until you hit your deductible, and then you do not pay anymore. I am lucky to have a great plan and would have paid hardly anything out of pocket, but this arrangement would have ripped my insurance company off. Places like this are the reason that health insurance is so expensive in our country. This office does not care about your finances, and in fact, will aggressively try to separate you from them. In conclusion, all I can say is find another Chiropractor. There are many other offices in Vero Beach that offer quality care. You will see that Indian River Chiropractic constantly runs deals and groupons to get you in the door, but that is all a ploy. I have consulted with other Chiropractors, it is likely that they are using a paid management service to augment their business. Use your common sense, and find an office worthy of your hard-earned money. P.S. I'm sure you are wondering how every Google review for this business is 5 stars, which is an incredible feat for any business to accomplish (let alone this one). If you look closely at the names, you might just notice a Melinda Schiermyer. She is the doctor's wife and the on-site patient educator. Would a legitimate office have their employees perform their own Google reviews? I think not. There are also reviews by people with the same last names, who have only reviewed IRC in their account history. None of this surprises me; be very wary of these folks. I honestly wonder how they sleep at night.
