New Patients : Expectations

On the first visit, our patients are warmly welcomed. You'll be asked to fill out some paperwork so the doctor can learn more about your health. You can save time and speed up your office visit by filling out our confidential Patient Intake Form online!

Consultation

Next, the doctor will talk to you about your health concerns and begin the examination. Your specific condition may require x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist in developing the most effective treatment plan. The doctor will take the needed X-rays prior to any further treatments.

Initial Exam

Next, the doctor performs a more thorough exam in order to determine what functional limitations you may have. The doctor will then go over the results of the exam and X-rays and then discuss different treatment options, and answer any insurance and financial questions.

Same-Day Treatment

Patients will generally be treated the same day. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies by a licensed massage therapist or certified chiropractic assistant.

Follow-Up Care

Prior to leaving, you will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be done at home. This may include ice application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.

You will be given a convenient appointment time for a follow-up visit and an ice pack.

How much time?

Please plan for 30-45 minutes in our office for your first visit. You can save time and speed up your office visit by filling out our Patient Intake Form online.
