You will be warmly welcomed and made to feel at home in a relaxing and friendly atmosphere.
For many people, the first visit to a new health care provider is a step into the unfamiliar. Please allow us to give you an outline of what to expect.
Your first visit will allow us to gather as much relevant information about you as we can in order to determine how we can best serve you. This visit may take up to 45-50 minutes, so please allow enough time. We also ask that you dress comfortably for the examination and please bring a copy of any past CTs, MRIs, X-rays or other relevant test results.
Our initial visit begins with you filling out some necessary paperwork. These initial forms provide us with essential information about you, your condition, and your health history. This step can be handled in a much more timely manner by filling out the paperwork prior to this first visit.
Following the paperwork, you will meet the doctor to discuss the relevant details of your health. In order for us to gather a complete picture we may ask questions regarding previous injuries, postural habits, sports, medication usage and results, diet, repetitive stressors, etc. If we feel that your problem is outside of our expertise we will let you know. Following our consultation, we will then begin our exam.
Various movements, palpation (touch), and other relevant testing procedures are used to determine which part of your body is responsible for generating the discomfort you may be experiencing. We will also ask questions and use procedures to rule out serious disease and pathologies that may need to be treated elsewhere.
X-rays are sometimes needed to assess and help diagnose certain conditions. If they are needed, we have x-ray facilities nearby to ensure that we get the best possible films in a timely manner.
