New Patients

If you are visiting with us for the first time, we would like you to know exactly what to expect. We want to provide you with a great experience and will make sure that you feel welcome and supported every step of the way.  Our office is often described as warm and friendly, with an upbeat feel. We hope you agree.

We also want you to know that if you have been injured in an accident, whether from a vehicular collision, a fall, or a work-related trauma, we want to make your experience with us as stress-free as possible. Please notify us if you are without immediate transportation following a car accident, and we will arrange for one of our citywide vans to bring you to the office from your home or place of employment.

Your First Visit

filling out paperworkAs you enter the clinic, you will be warmly greeted by our bilingual receptionist, who will invite you to sit down to complete any unfinished new patient paperwork. You will then be escorted to a private consultation room, where you will meet with one of our experienced doctors. The doctor will conduct a thorough assessment, including

  • A consultation, including a detailed health history
  • An orthopedic and neurological evaluation
  • X-rays, if necessary (we provide on-site imaging services)

If you are experiencing a lot of discomfort, we also will provide you with appropriate physical therapy to help reduce your pain.

We also will verify your insurance coverage at this time and will advise you of all payment options. Upon your commitment to treatment, we will get started with a plan that is designed to optimize your health potential and get you out of pain as quickly as possible.

Your Second Visit

This appointment usually occurs the day following your first visit. The doctor will deliver a report of findings, which is based on a thorough conference review of your examination and X-ray results by all doctors in the practice.

Care options will then be itemized, including the possibility of chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, massage therapy, laser treatment or physiotherapy modalities.  A customized plan of action will be discussed to help you meet your stated goals.

Regular Visits

Subsequent visits can take anywhere between 15 to 60 minutes, depending on the complexity of your case. Chiropractic adjustments can often be accompanied by specific massage therapy benefits, acupuncture or physical therapy modalities to assist in your rehabilitation. Our patients appreciate our customized treatment combinations, finding that they are able to heal in less time, with fewer visits.

We would love to welcome you to one of our health and wellness centers. We are open late for your convenience, and also feature Saturday appointments. Contact us today for an appointment.
