We hear it all the time, “ I feel like I am at home when I’m here”. Our services stand out because we truly care about each person who walks through our door. We are a small business who has been helping our Glen Ellyn community for 23 years. We prefer a smaller patient base, so we can spend the necessary time to really listen to our patient’s concerns. Our services are customized to each patient’s unique needs. At DuPage Healthcare you will never feel alone on your health care journey.
I enjoy changing lives. It’s not the absence of a patient’s chronic pain or that they lost 100 pounds on our program that makes me excited to go to work every day. It’s when chronic pain is gone, and they can finally play with their kids. It’s because they lost 100lbs they can get a job. When a patient can return to life and enjoy it, that is what I love about my job.
I've learned how to better take care of my spine and overall health with proper exercise. I now go every other week for adjustment and monthly for a massage. I look at this as upkeep of my spinal health, just as going to a gym for exercise is good upkeep of one's body. Dr. Pepping's practice helps all ages!
The caring attitude of the staff.
Dr Pepping really cares about my heath and not just her bottom line. The staff are all very friendly and actually look happy to see you. The massages are fantastic!
The entire staff is wonderful. They are very caring group and listen to any questions or concerns you might have. If you are looking for a wonderful chiropractor or massage therapist, this is the place to go.
That depends on what service you are coming in for. If you are getting a massage then you will be offered coffee or water, possibly a nice hot pack and then your massage therapist will greet you and bring you back for your service.
If you are scheduling because you are seeking Chiropractic then your first visit will be a consultation with me, Dr. Sally Pepping. This visit is for us to get to know each other and for me to better understand what your concern is and how it’s affecting our life. An exam and x-rays usually follow.
You are scheduled for a second visit to see if I can accept you as a patient. I only accept the patients that I know I can truly help and that I know want to be helped. If I can accept you, we will review your x-rays and my findings. I will then provide you with my best care recommendation and what your cost will be. This would include your insurance benefits if you provided that on your first visit.
Owning an office for 23 years has given me the best training of all. Knowing what types of conditions people are suffering with, how our ever changing "digital" world influences these conditions, and how patients respond to treatment.
But on a more formal level:
1996-Doctorate degree from The National University of Health Sciences
1994-Bachelor Of Science in human biology from The National University of Health Sciences.
1992-Bachelors of Science from Northern Illinois University.
I am a certified McKenzie instructor from the McKenzie Institute
We offer the most affordable options to our patients.
If you have insurance, we will verify your benefits as a courtesy and let you know what services are covered.
If you do not have insurance, we can offer you a "Health Pass" which will include everything from your Day 1 visit up to your report of findings on Day 2.
If your insurance verification comes back with a high deductible or the cost is more than our "Health Pass" price we will offer that you to help reduce your costs.
We offer massage therapy and include this in most of our care plans. If your insurance does not cover this service, we have a massage club that makes this service more affordable.
As an avid athlete I always wanted to dedicate my life to helping people and started down the physical therapy path which lead me to the field of Chiropractic.
At the time Chiropractic gave me the autonomy to not only practice physical therapy, but to be in control of my patients care.
Now I practice Chiropractic because it is the best drug free connection to help people's bodies to heal naturally. It's affordable, and it can change a person's life.
After 23 years I could say everyone.
Babies, children, teens, middle aged, and the elderly.
Lower back pain, neck pain, numbness and tingling in the extremities, headaches, ...
The patients I enjoy working with the most are the ones who have lost hope or who have been told incorrect information. These people have the most life changing experiences.
I have a newer patient who is 65, in a lot of pain, and was recently taken advantage of financially by another doctor’s office.
She had tears in her eyes and said that over the weekend she had 4 straight hours of no pain. She said it was like a miracle.
Then she hugged me!
A Personal recommendation from a friend or family is always the best way to find any professional.
If that is not an option for you then, unfortunately there is really no way to know if you have connections with an office or doctor until you meet them.
With social media and savvy websites anyone can look good on paper or tablet.
See if they have an introductory, make an appointment, and find out for yourself if it's a good fit.
1. How convenient is the office location? If it's too far away it will be challenging to follow through with any care plan.
2. Do I like the services they offer? Do you like massages? Acupuncture?
3. Will I be able to work with their hours?
4. Do they offer any type of new patient special? This allows you to form your own opinion about this office. The Dr. Patient relationship is so important. Many patients will choose an office only if their insurance covers it. Personally, I don't want my insurance to control who I see. I would want to see who is best for me and work with their financial policy.
