First Visit Expectations

What to Expect During Your First Visit

If you have any questions regarding your care at our office, please feel free to speak with any of our expert team members or the doctor. We want you to feel comfortable and confident with your treatment here, along with knowing that your health care is our first priority.

Consultation

You will be asked to fill out New Patient Forms which will help us gain some information about yourself and your condition. Please take your time to fill them out completely. The more information you are able to provide, the better we will be able to help you. For your convenience you may download them by clicking on the link above and bring them with you to your first visit. All forms will remain strictly confidential (see our privacy policy for more information).

The doctor will ask you directed questions to assess your condition and how it is affecting you, and then will proceed with an examination. Nothing will be done in our office without your consent.

Examination

You will receive a thorough physical exam which will include standard orthopedic, neurologic, postural, and other examinations as required. After the initial Examination, the doctor may order additional testing to be performed. The doctor will do this to determine the cause of your complaint. No additional testing will be performed in our office without a full explanation of the procedure, your options, and your consent.

 

Additional Testing which may be ordered may include: X-ray, CT, MRI, Ultrasound, EKG, Stress Test, or Laboratory Testing. If you have recently had testing done, please bring in copies of the films, reports, and laboratory results to your first appointment along with a list of your current medications (include herbal and over the counter). Review of Findings

 

After the doctor has gathered and analyzed your information, examination, imaging, and testing results, the doctor will review his findings with you and explain recommendations for treatment.

A spouse or family member is always welcome to attend.
