The services provided are very reasonable and cost-effective in our system of health care, and if requested we will provide you with a receipt and, if appropriate for your condition, a claim form that you can submit to your insurance company to seek reimbursement. Dr. Barsten, DC is not an HMO member, so these will not cover our services. We are not able to provide services within the Medicare or Medicaid contract.
Note that we do not bill any insurance. This allows our clinic to keep costs as low as possible and focus our time and energy more efficiently on research, evaluation and clinical skills, not administrative paperwork. This enables us to provide you with the highest quality care possible.
X-rays : We do not have an x-ray unit on site. We often don’t suggest x-rays, but if needed, we will write a prescription to have them performed at any variety of locations throughout the bay area, such as Valley Radiologists, etc. These can usually be taken the same day, and if necessary, brought to the office for review. Otherwise, we will get a report from the medical radiologist emailed or mailed to our office.

Initial evaluation & lab work
Our initial 1, 1½, and 2 hour appointment rates are $400 per hour. Follow-up visits up to 30 minutes are $195, appointments of 30-45 minutes are $295, and 45-60 minutes are $395. Quick-check visits (up to 15 minutes) are $95. Outside lab fees are performed with no added mark-up (common in many doctors offices).
Phone and ZOOM consultations are the same rate as above. Brief questions are free, however if the time exceeds 5 minutes, and/or calls are on a frequent basis, we will suggest a phone consultation so as to better address concerns, and not to ‘piece together’ important information.
We will bill your insurance company for personal injury cases (such as auto accidents) only. Note: we do not bill for any other type of case, however we can give you a universal claim form with appropriate codes that you may choose to submit to your insurance carrier for possible reimbursement.

Dr. Barsten is our health expert. Our family has consulted with him for many years for a variety of ailments from heart disease, thyroid issues, headaches and arthritis. We always walk away inspired and armed with solutions that really work. He will often recommend therapies that are simple and free.
Having gone to many Chiro’s over the years I can tell you that Greg is at the top of his game and is one that doesn’t simply want to snap crackle and pop you but actually get you well. His nutritional knowledge is among the best and his knowledge of supplements and herbal remedies is unbelievable.
The class IV laser treatments at HealthQuest have significantly lessened my osteoarthritis pain in both my knees, and I am much more stable on the stairs as well as on the golf course!
I've been receiving annual bone density scans. The recent combination of Dr. Barsten's guidance on diet, nutrition, specific exercises, etc., has made a huge difference, an incredible difference. My most recent scan showed I was not only able to stop the bone loss, but actually gain bone density back. This is something my OB-GYN physician called both remarkable and surprising, given that I did not take prescription medications for osteoporosis. I am so glad I listened to you. I cannot thank you enough.
Following Dr. Barsten's advice after major surgery last year was one of the best decisions I have ever made. My surgeon was amazed at the speed and extent of my healing. He said at 3 weeks after surgery, I was where the typical patient is at 3 months! The benefits from following Dr. Barsten's advice have extended far beyond healing from the procedure. I feel energetic, old blemishes on my skin have faded, my digestion has improved and overall I feel better than ever. I am grateful that I found my way to Dr. Barsten and would highly recommend him to anybody wanting to address specific health concerns or invest in their overall well being.
Greg is fabulous. You always hear horror stories about people who go to chiropractors every week for years on end. With Greg, he can usually fix what ails you in one or two visits. I've recommended him to friends, and all of them were pleased.
