Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our new patient forms. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Next, you will have a consultation with one of the doctors to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for the doctor to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how treatments can meet your goals.
After your consultation, the doctor will perform a complete examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays or an MRI. They help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their degeneration themselves.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, the doctor will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- Will this work for me?
- How long will it take?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your X-rays or MRI, the doctor will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers to provide the best treatment and wellness program for your specific needs.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, we will go over your treatment options, which may include human cellular tissue treatment, platelet-rich plasma injections, physical medicine, bracing, detoxification or nutritional support. Our comprehensive treatments are interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle.
Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
