Upon entering our office our receptionist will greet you and welcome you as a member of our family. We will request you fill our patient forms located in the New Patient Area. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition.
Next you will have a consultation with to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options. Your first visit is designed for Dr. Jerry to learn more about you, your condition and your expectations to determine whether chiropractic care is appropriate for you.
After your consultation a complete chiropractic examination will be performed. The exam will include standard neurologic, orthopedic, and postural assessments. Nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to to get a full evaluation. X-rays help us rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. Most people are amazed once they their x-rays and can often immediately identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
Report of Findings
Once all the information and examinations have been performed, a detailed report of findings will be given to answer the three most popular questions:
• Can you help me?
• What do you recommend that I do to get better?
• How much is it going to cost?
After discussing your history and your goals, examining your spine and reviewing any x-rays or tests, Dr. Jerry will discuss recommendations with you. If you have a condition that requires care with other providers, the doctor will tell you. If we believe we can help you, we will recommend treatment and a wellness program.
After a complete report of findings you will be given your first adjustment. The doctors will explain exactly what we will be doing before we make any type of adjustments. Their style of adjusting is very gentle and will not cause pain or discomfort. For patients who have seen other chiropractors before, many are pleasantly surprised at how gentle the adjustments are. Typical visits take 10 to 15 minutes after the initial consultation and examination. The doctor may make recommendations about how to prevent future misalignments and what is the next step on your road to health.
