What to Expect

If you’ve ever gone to a social event where you didn’t know anyone, you know how uncomfortable that can make you feel. Our goal is to eliminate every shred of apprehension and make you feel at home. New patients often remark how comfortable they feel in our office is. That’s good, because our goal is to offer state-of-the-art chiropractic care in a comfortable surrounding.

Since chiropractic care involves a series of visits, with each one building on the ones before, it’s important that our relationship can go the distance. We’ve found that one of the best ways to have successful patient relationships is to explain everything in advance. No surprises!

We offer our paperwork online so you can complete it before you come in for your first appointment.

You’ll find plenty of convenient parking and a well-lit parking lot. You’ll be greeted by name when you enter our office and given a short tour to get you acquainted with our facilities.If you’ve already completed your admitting paperwork found online, great! If not, after doing so the doctor will review it quickly and then meet with you to discuss your specific concerns.

From here a comprehensive exam will take place including a history, neurological exam, physical, and in some cases even a dietary review. All the exams are non invasive and allows the doctor to get a clearer picture of your overall health. In some cases x-rays are necessary to further define your unique situation. Allow 30 – 45 minutes for your first visit.

The purpose of your consultation with the doctor is to discuss your health goals and see if chiropractic is likely to help you. If it looks promising, a thorough examination will help identify the cause of your problem.

On your report visit we explain what we found and how we may be able to help you. After we study your health history and correlate our examination findings, we’ll make recommendations designed to help you get and keep your health. We call this the Report of Findings.

This is usually attended to on your second visit, which may be later the same day or the following day. In certain circumstances we make exceptions. It just depends on your unique situation. This two-visit approach accomplishes several things:

  • Reduces the length of your first visit
  • Gives us time to correlate our findings
  • Avoids overloading you with too much information

At the end of this visit you should feel comfortable knowing what the status is of your health, how and if chiropractic can help you, how long it will take, and what our commitments and your commitments are.

After the investment of time needed on the first and second visits, many patients become concerned that every visit will be of equal length. In a word: no. A typical visit may require just a few, highly-focused, minutes. But don’t think the brevity of a regular visit lessens its value! With the groundwork laid, we can quickly size up what your spine and nervous system, adjust you and get you on your way.

Like a regular workout at the gym, each visit builds on the ones before. Miss a visit and we can lose the momentum necessary to make the needed changes.

We recognize your time is valuable. We do everything possible to run on time and minimize the impact on your busy life.
