Please wear loose-fitting clothing so we can easily access the area of your injury. For example, a t-shirt and shorts or pants with an elastic band.
A referral from a physician is necessary prior to the evaluation. If obtaining a referral is not seamless, we have a medical provider on staff who can write that referral.
Yes. Chiropractic treatment is commonly used for sports injuries to relieve symptoms, improve range of motion, accelerate healing, and many other benefits. Seeing a chiropractor often results in patients getting back to their active lifestyle more quickly than they otherwise would on medications or with surgery.
At your first appointment, you can expect to fill out a brief in-office questionnaire to give the provider a better understanding of the issue/ailment we will be evaluating. We will then do a thorough evaluation to determine the best course of action to treat your specific concerns. Our providers will typically offer conservative treatment on day one and the bulk of treatment will start at the second office visit.
The second office visit is what we consider to be the review of findings. At this appointment, our case manager will review the financial options that correspond with the provider’s recommended treatment plan as well as review any imaging results if applicable.
We do not perform radiology at our facility however there are several imaging facilities nearby that often schedule same day appointments.
Dry needling, Shockwave, Spinal Decompression, Class 4 Laser, Regenerative Medicine, Food Sensitivity Testing, and Genetic Testing

- Aetna – all providers
- Blue Cross Blue Shield – all providers
- Medicare – all providers (spine issues only for Chiropractic)

All new patients at Austin Preferred will need to fill out our New Patient Paperwork prior to the initial visit. The New Patient Paperwork is available to fill out online at the link below. If you do not elect to fill out the paperwork ahead of time, please arrive 30 minutes prior to your first appointment to do so.
In addition to filling out the New Patient Paperwork, please bring in a photo ID, your insurance or Medicare card (if billing through insurance), and any referrals you have from other physicians. Additionally, any diagnostic imaging, medication lists, and visit notes from other doctors are also useful, though not mandatory.
Please call (512) 442-2727 with questions or to schedule an appointment at our Westlake clinic. Our providers sometimes get booked out for several days at a time, so we advise all patients to call in advance of their desired appointment time. We also keep an ongoing waiting list in the event that patients aren’t able to obtain their desired appointment times.
The staff at Austin Preferred Integrative Medicine strives to work alongside patients to secure the most convenient appointment times. We also strive to work with patients to reschedule when necessary. However, we also enforce a cancellation policy.
We realize events can arise which interfere with the planned course of treatment. If you need to cancel or change an appointment times, please call (512) 442-2727 or email firstname.lastname@example.org at least 24 hours in advance, so we have adequate time to fill your vacated spot with another patient in need of treatment. We charge a $25 fee to patients who cancel within 24 hours of their scheduled appointment time and to those who fail to appear for their appointments altogether.
Austin Preferred is a leader in Holistic Medicine in Austin, Texas. Consequently, there are waiting lists to see our medical providers. In light of this, we appreciate the chance to fill vacant time slots with patients who have waited their turn.
Patients who fail to notify us ahead of time regarding cancellations or rescheduling will be subject to a cancellation fee. Depending on the nature and frequency of violations, patients may be required to pay any outstanding fees before continuing treatment. You may reschedule with us at the time of cancellation or call back at your own convenience to do so.
Thank you for choosing Austin Preferred! Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns regarding our cancellation policy.
