THE DOCERE CLINICS ADVANTAGE
At Docere Clinics, we love people, and we love our work. We strive above all else to listen to you without interrupting or judging, teach you about the cause of your pain, provide you with the highest quality stem cell procedure available, and just as importantly, make you laugh and feel relaxed and among friends. Here are the reasons we believe we are best suited to perform your procedure:
We genuinely like people. We recognize you first as a human being, and next as our boss. We understand that you are the very person that pays us to provide you with a service and the reason we’re in business. Our reception area is NOT a ‘waiting room’. We believe that your time is just as valuable as is ours, so we make every effort to stay on time. Next, we spend ample time with you in order to fully understand your condition and not rush procedures. We never over-book or double-book our day.
Our strengths are our capacity to really listen to you without interrupting or judging, our procedural skills, our adherence to safety protocols, our close follow-up, and our ability to make people laugh and relax. We’re providing you with a medical procedure, but we feel strongly that we also provide you with a positive human interaction. Since 2002, we have performed well over 20,000 regenerative injection therapy procedures on over 10,000 patients and enjoy a very high patient satisfaction rate. Please see our YouTube page to see what nearly 200 people have to say about us.
If you are researching doctors to perform your adult stem cell therapy procedure, the first item to evaluate is the doctor’s experience in the field of regenerative medicine. Dr Adelson opened Docere Clinics in 2002 and since day one, his practice has been 100% regenerative injection therapy procedures for the treatment of musculoskeletal pain conditions. He began performing platelet rich plasma (PRP) in 2006, and adult stem cell procedures in February of 2010, placing him among the very early doctors providing these therapies. Since 2010, his practice has been nearly 100% adult stem cell procedures for chronic pain conditions (the rest being PRP procedures). He has performed over 4,000 adult stem cell procedures that have produced zero adverse outcomes and many satisfied patients. This places him solidly among the most experienced in the world with adult stem cell procedures for the treatment of pain.
The next item to consider is needle-guidance; does the stem cell doctor use imaging to place the needle? If you are going to go through the financial and emotional commitment of having a bone marrow and/or fat aspiration, you want to be absolutely certain the stem cells get injected precisely into the target location. This requires imaging. Dr Adelson uses imaging for 100% of the procedures he performs; ultrasound for soft tissues (i.e. rotator cuff, Achilles, plantar fascia, etc) and fluoroscopy (X-ray) for bone marrow aspiration and injection of joints and spine.
Because adult stem cell therapy for chronic pain is considered experimental, insurance does not pay for it; it is a ‘cash procedure’. Since Docere Clinics opened in 2002, we have been a ‘cash-based practice’ and have never billed insurance. The reason for this is that our philosophy is that we want to work for YOU, not for an insurance company. This means we have always offered and performed the treatments that we deem best and agree upon, rather than only what insurance companies deem they will pay for. Most clinics that offer adult stem cell therapies for chronic pain transitioned to a ‘cash-based practice’ from ‘insurance-based practice’. Because these clinics were originally designed and structured based on a traditional high-volume, insurance-based model, they have large facilities and large support staff. Subsequently, their cash prices are frequently very high in order to pay for their large overhead. Because we have been a ‘cash-based’ practice since day one, our low overhead allows us to charge far less without compromising quality.
Our having never billed insurance offers an additional advantage to you: unlike many of our colleagues, we are not burned out on medicine. Physician burn-out is at a record high. The reason? Insurance billing. We love our work and we find our patients a pleasure to work with.
