Our Military Care Program
As a Hospital Corpsman in the Navy for more than 12 years, Dr. Constantinides understands the hard work and sacrifice that goes into a military life – for the service member and the family. She finds it truly unfortunate that TriCare does not cover chiropractic care for our active duty and family members as well as retirees and family members. Granted, active duty members can see the chiropractor at Portsmouth Naval Hospital if they have a referral, but the wait is two months long and the visit is over in three minutes.
To right the ship, Dr. Constantinides provides a major discount to active duty and retired military members, as well as their spouses and children. This “Military Care” program has been growing in popularity, and we can help you, too.
