Your First Visit
Upon entering our office, you will meet our friendly receptionist who will get you set up with the necessary intake paperwork. Hopefully you have downloaded and completed the appropriate forms from the above sections before coming in, which will greatly reduce your waiting time in the office. Our receptionist will make copies of your insurance card and photo ID, which are necessary for processing your file so make sure to bring them along. Once you have completed all of the intake paperwork, you will be taken into an examination room to start your consulttation.
Consultation and Examination
Your first contact with the doctor will be a consultation. This consultation is designed to help the doctor specify your chief complaints and get a better picture of your health history. This is necessary to help the doctor provide you with a holistic helath plan. The doctor will use this information as a guide during the examintation to help keep the focus on necessary procedures. These procedures are almost always limited to manual movements and guided movements performed by and with the doctor, although occasionally special testing such as X-rays, MRIs, or blood work may be requested to further our understanding of your conditions.
Our expert doctors will put together all of the information gathered to develop a treatment plan specifically tailored to you and your personal needs. Your treatment plan will include some combination of chiropractic adjustments, physiotherapy treatments (ice, heat, or electric stim), home exercises, educational materials, and nutritional counseling. Your first treatment will be administered pending your approval, and you will be on your way to feeling better and one step closer to a helthier, happier life!
