Hear what our members have to say
For some time now, we had talked about the need for someone to help us with the things that our Doctors just were not finding the time to get done. When this opportunity came up with someone as knowledgeable, experienced, and dedicated to our profession as Jeff Smith, it was an easy decision to join Cohesion.
Jeff has helped us with establishing a definition of who we are and what we want for our patients, staff, as well as the Doctors. He has assisted us with administrative tasks from hiring new staff and establishing policies to deal with staff issues; to compliance; to benchmarking; to goal setting; to keeping everyone focused on what can be done to make our patients feel that they are in the best place for their health care. We happily and enthusiastically recommend Cohesion Chiropractic.

I do not have enough staff to keep up with all of the necessary clinical changes, and therefore I have benefitted from Cohesion Chiropractic by keeping my office current on mandated office procedures. I also appreciate the ability to do webinars and share discussions on various clinical applications with the other members.

Being a member of Cohesion Chiropractic has been a valuable piece of my practice. It has taken away some of the stress of day to day operations in my clinics as I have another set of eyes and ears out there to keep track of changes with things such as HIPAA, Meaningful Use, OSHA, etc.
Cohesion has helped me be able to stay more focused on patient care rather than some of those other matters and it has been nice to have other (like-minded) DC's to network with as well.
Dr. Jay Fitzgerald Wagner and Tyndall Chiropractic Wagner and Tyndall SD
We opened our first clinic in 1959 and our Doctors range from 34 years in practice to 5 years in practice. We have also been consultants for various insurance companies and managed care groups, including lecturing on multiple subjects in the health care field both on the patient management and administrative side. With our experience we feel like we have a great deal of knowledge about the health care industry and we have always tried to be on the cutting edge of what is occurring in health care. However, because of the increasing regulations and requirements in practicing chiropractic we started to feel lost and confused about how to navigate through an always changing landscape.
When Jeff Smith discussed his vision for Cohesion Chiropractic we did not hesitate on becoming a client of his. The personalized approach he takes with each client and the wide base of knowledge that he has provided us has been a great benefit to our organization. The Doctors and staff are more confident in tackling the challenges that occur with the support of Cohesion Chiropractic and we have flourished over the last year while maintaining a full speed ahead approach in dealing with the health care changes that we are currently experiencing and that lie ahead of us.
Even though we are in a group practice and have the opportunity to consult with, and learn from, each other every day, we have been able to grow our practice by working directly with the other members of Cohesion Chiropractic through learning sessions and regular communication facilitated by Cohesion.
Whether you are new in practice or a veteran of 34 years, it is nearly impossible to know all the new requirements to operate in the health care world. Having a “go to” organization and person is a must. We have found Jeff’s guidance to be invaluable, not to mention the load he has taken off our shoulders. We highly recommend Cohesion Chiropractic to any Doctor.

I felt I was doing well in clinical practice, but it was all the other stuff (HIPPA compliance, documentation requirements, meaningful use, PQRS, potential audits, new rules and regulations, etc.) that I knew I needed help to successfully navigate through. Cohesion has exceeded my expectations. I feel confident now with the help of Cohesion that I am successfully addressing all these areas that can cause worry and concern for so many doctors. Not only did I get help with all these concerns, but it has freed me up to concentrate more on my practice and patients.
My first year with Cohesion was my best year ever in terms of collections and Cohesion was a part of that success. Another thing that I love about Cohesion is the chance to communicate with like-minded doctors who are in the trenches on a daily basis. The camaraderie and friendships developed are meaningful. The opportunity to ask questions and discuss the challenges and highlights of practice has been great. If you want to become a better clinician there is opportunity to communicate with some truly great doctors who are part of this group.
Finally, the professionalism and dedication of Jeff Smith, President of Cohesion Chiropractic, is truly exceptional. He is a true asset to our profession and he has a bold vision for both Cohesion and our profession as a whole. If you are looking to take your practice to the next level or just need some help navigating through the complex world of delivering healthcare in today's world you owe it to yourself to check out what Cohesion has to offer.

Our clinic, like many, was challenged with disseminating and then implementing all the changes taking place in our profession, such as, EHR, PQRS, HIPAA, Medicare Compliance, etc., to the point it was becoming very frustrating and time consuming. So when Jeff called with his idea of Cohesion Chiropractic Resource Group, we were “all in.” The “hub and wheel” analogy just made sense. Jeff, being the “hub”, gathering all the needed information, disseminating it and then boiling it down so the doctors “spokes” can implement it.
Another valuable benefit of being a member of Cohesion Chiropractic Resource Group, is the wealth of chiropractic knowledge Jeff and the other member doctors have. It’s nice to sit with a group of like-minded doctors and discuss patient care, the latest research, as well as and office policies and procedures. The collective knowledge is invaluable!!
Since joining Cohesion Chiropractic Resource Group we have enjoyed fewer frustrations and more time to focus on patient care.
