Is HEALTHSOURCE CHIROPRACTIC a great chiropractic franchise opportunity or a borderline scam designed only to make the franchisor wealthy?

Dr. Chris Tomshack is the founder and CEO of HealthSource Chiropractic and Progressive Rehab, and has been a chiropractor in private practice for 15 years. Dr. Tomshack offers a conversion franchise for established chiropracters to convedrt their practices into a “franchised clone” of his business. On his website, he pitches chiropracters:
…My solution I’d like you to consider is much more complete and all encompassing than any of these things piece-meal: the conversion of your practice to a franchised clone of mine… with a great many things done entirely for you (including advertising and marketing)… a powerful brand… …and with absolutely certain, substantial improvements in the efficiency of your practice, which should lead to increased take home income and equity value.
The benefits are seemingly appealing:
A New Opportunity To Replace Your Current Chiropractic Practice With The Potential For A Much More Profitable, Much More Valuable, Much More Efficient Business
That’s Designed To Give You And Your Staff Less Stress… …That’s Designed To Attract An Ample Quantity Of Really Good New Patients With NO Struggle… …And Flexibly Addresses Legal And Insurance Hassles… …That’s Designed To Help You Build The Practice Of Your Dreams And Give You Freedom And An Exit Strategy At The Same Time.
Only one D. C. per area will be accepted. Please read and consider this IMMEDIATELY, or risk being permanently excluded in favor of another, competing doctor in your area.
However, comments left on complaint boards suggest that Dr. Tomshack and the HEALTHSOURCE CHIROPRACTIC franchise might be less than ethical in approach and less-than-effective in results. According to Dr. jt on RipoffReport:
Dr. Tomshack is a great talker and sales person. If you google HealthSource specifically in Chiropractic Economics magazine you will find lots of others that have nothing good to say about this guy…
His entire organization is based on ‘killer’ ad marketing…
Bring in a PT and Massage person and MAX bill their insurance…
Also sell them ALL on a low back belt or other braces..regardless if they need it or not…
People are dropping from his company as they discover that this is a HUGE expense and after the multiple increases in office expenses…you dont make any more money…you make him money…
Very gray areas of billing and snake oil marketing…lowers the chiropractic profession…I bet based on multiple suits against this guy that HealthSource goes away in the very near future..
WHAT DO YOU THINK? IS HEALTHSOURCE CHIROPRACTIC A LEGITIMATE FRANCHISE OPPORTUNITY PROVIDING ETHICAL PATIENT CARE?
