Your First Visit

When you arrive for your first visit to our facility, we ask that you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your appointment to fill out the initial paperwork.
Once you have completed the necessary paperwork, your first visit will begin. This visit will generally last between 30 to 45 minutes.

What do I Need to Bring With Me?

We suggest that you bring in the following items when you come for your first visit:
  • A copy of your complete medical history
  • Previous medical evaluations from other medical providers (Psychologists, Doctors, Surgeons, Physical Therapists, Chiropractors, etc…)
  • Recent MRI and X-rays (We ask that you bring actual films)
  • If you were referred to us by a physician or your family doctor, please bring in your referral slip
  • For payment, we ask that you bring your insurance card. In case there are additional charges, or co-pays, we ask that you also bring your credit card for payment; we also accept cash.

Physical Exam

For your privacy, the evaluation will occur in a private, comfortable room. We begin the examination with a thorough physical assessment. During this time, we will discuss your medical history, including any issues that may have caused the problem you are seeking treatment for, as well as all of your work-related and lifestyle habits. You will need to provide us with a list - including names - of all the medications, nutritional supplements, and vitamins that you are currently taking.

We will then move to the next portion of the physical examination, which includes checking your vital signs, taking the posture and movement assessment, chiropractic and orthopedic testing, in addition to palpation of specific structures that are related to any issues you have complained about - this is done so we can determine what is causing your medical issue.

Once the examination is complete, one of our doctors will go over the results, and provide you with a working diagnosis. In order to determine what treatment would be appropriate, further diagnostic studies will be necessary, including x-rays.
