What to Expect On Your First Visit
On the first visit, our emphasis is on understanding your condition and determining an appropriate course of treatment. You will have a thorough history and an examination. We may need to take X-rays of your spine and if this is so, we have the capability to do those films in the office. If you are in acute pain we will offer some gentle therapies as well as home care suggestions to help make you comfortable.
At your first visit, you can expect:
- To be greeted at the door
- To hand in or fill out required New Patient Forms
- To have a Consultation with the Doctor
- To undergo a Physical Exam
- To have any necessary tests including x-rays, as needed
What to Expect On Your Second Visit
Once your initial examination is complete, we provide a complete report of our findings and review any testing with you so you understand all of your treatment options.
Depending on your treatment decision you may have questions regarding insurance coverage.
We will review your insurance with you during your second visit to make sure you are comfortable with your decision moving forward.
Feel free to bring a spouse, family member, or friend with you to your appointment. We’re also a kid-friendly office. Your kids probably aren’t as fascinated with restorative medicine as we are, so we won’t be offended if they bring something to do!
