Holistic Health and Wellness
Thank you for your interest in our practice!
Here’s what you can expect:
At Gateways Chiropractic, we do a thorough consultation and evaluation which will last 30-45 minutes depending on the complexity of your case and your chosen route of care (chiropractic care, acupuncture, nutritional counseling and target enzyme nutrition), or a combination of the three.
If you have scheduled a Full Functional Health Evaluation, please allow 2 hours for the exam. Please remember that this is a fasting, two-part exam. The first part of the exam takes about 20 minutes. This is followed by a food-challenge and a 45 minute wait-period (while your digestive system activates). The exam is then repeated a second time, yielding information regarding how food affects your system.
If a treatment is performed on your first visit, this may take an additional 15-30 minutes depending on your body’s needs. and the treatments used.
Please download and complete the appropriate paperwork prior to your first visit.
If you have any questions, give us a call at (636) 940-2226.

Can you help me with my health problem?
The doctors at Gateways Chiropractic are trained in innovative, natural ways to identify and address many common and complex health problems. You may have had the experience of seeing a doctor for a health concern only to find that all of the exams and diagnostic tests came back as “normal.” You feel sick but no one can pinpoint what’s wrong or how to fix it. Many physicians are trained to focus on symptoms and manage existing illness. This approach is based on disease, not health, and offers “sick-care,” not “health-care”. There is a large range of dysfunction between optimal health and advanced disease and this is where natural, holistic healthcare shines.
We are on a mission to provide true health-care to our community. Our practice offers in-depth health assessments focused on finding and addressing the root cause of stress and dysfunction in your body. We use a whole-body, or “holistic,” approach in our practice, focusing our efforts on removing stress and nourishing the body. We offer personalized health packages tailored to your specific health needs and goals as well as supportive care to patients with chronic, degenerative, medical disorders.
Ultimately, all healing comes from within YOU. You are responsible for your state of being and we would be honored to help you on your journey to better health.
The doctors at Gateways Chiropractic are happy to offer a free 15 minute consultation to determine if our office is a good fit for you.
How long will I need to be treated?
Our short-term goal is to address your health concerns in as few treatments as is necessary. Each case is unique and length of treatment is determined after a detailed consultation and examination. Depending on the complexity of your case, the initial phase of care could last from a few visits to several months.
Once you get well, our long-term goal is to help you stay well. If you are accepted as a patient in our office, we recommend that most patients check-in on a monthly basis for wellness visits to maintain progress and keep themselves functioning well and feeling great.
How much will it cost?
Please call our office to discuss the cost of care. Each patient is treated as a unique case and our recommendations are always tailored to your specific needs and goals.
Our office accepts cash, checks, or credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, Discover) for services rendered. Payment is due at the time of service.
Do you accept insurance?
Gateways Chiropractic does not accept insurance and does not file insurance paperwork on the patient’s behalf. We are happy to provide a detailed receipt of care, including diagnosis and procedure codes, that can be submitted to an insurance carrier for possible reimbursement (we cannot assure that services will be reimbursed).
We consider it an enormous honor to be a part of your health journey. Thank you in advance for sharing your testimony – it will help us to reach and help more people in our community. And that’s pretty awesome.
Dr. Mackenzie and Dr. Patrick
