First, you can expect that I will be on time. Please do me and my other patients who follow you the same courtesy.
If you come late, you cut short the time I have allotted for you.
As with any doctor's visit, we'll start by giving me for my review all the new patient forms you completed. If you have not already down loaded and completed them please arrive 45 minutes early to give you time to properly complete your New Patient Forms.
Upon meeting with the me, we'll discuss your concerns, needs and expectations and give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. We will then review your history and major health problems and pains followed by an examination. Please wear comfortable loose clothing if possible. (I do not routinely gown patients.) I do not take X-rays or do lab tests as a routine but will order them on occasion as needed. If you have X rays, bring them with you. If you have had a CT, MRI or other scan, please bring in the report, not the images. If you have copies of lab tests, please bring them as well.
Once your exam is complete, in most chiropractic cases we usually begin treatment on this first visit. Personalized Designed Clinical Nutritional and Diet Programs are usually started after a review of my program recommendations, plan of action and program costs on the first visit.
