On the first visit, we will ask you to fill out some paperwork that all new patients will complete with the front desk staff. When all of the documents are completed and the doctor is ready, you will be taken back to the office for a consultation. A chiropractic exam will be performed to determine if you have a chiropractic condition. This helps us get to know you more on a personal level and develop a better understanding of the cause(s) of any complaints and problems you present. If x-rays will be beneficial in ruling out more serious problems or help develop a more complete treatment plan, that will be discussed at this time. We will not guess about something as important as your health! When all of this is finished, you are done with your first visit and a second visit will be scheduled for the doctor to discuss his findings with you. This first visit may take about an hour. Please arrive 15 minutes early in order to complete the paperwork and help us serve you in a timely fashion.
The second visit will begin with a report of the key findings from the previous visit. If x-rays were taken, those will be discussed and shown at this time. The results will determine needs to be done next and if chiropractic treatment is indicated. If treatment is indicated, a test adjustment will be administered to unlock the problem area.
On each subsequent visit, you will check in with the front desk and be called back to a treatment room when available. These visits will typically last 10 – 20 minutes, depending on the extent of treatment, which will be discussed by the doctor in a final report and treatment plan.
