What should I expect from my first visit?
Each person who walks through our door is treated as an individual, with specific needs. Our job is to listen to you, together determine the the best course of action, and then provide you with excellent, results-oriented treatments.
So that Dr. Steve has the full picture of your health, he’ll gather important information on your first visit. Your health history is explored, as well as any current symptoms, activities, and lifestyle. You can save time by downloading your new patient forms (links at right) and completing them prior to your visit. (Otherwise, please allow 10-15 minutes prior to your appointment to do so in-office.) With background information in hand, Dr. Steve will look at structure and musculature using some combination of palpation (hands-on assessment), instrumentation (nervoscope), and x-ray. He will then determine a diagnosis and explain the options for treatment, which may include:
- Chiropractic care
- Massage therapy/bodywork
- Lifestyle changes (such as, sleeping position or workspace setup)
When appropriate, chiropractic adjustments are included in the first visit. Dr. Steve will recommend the most effective and efficient course of action for your care going forward. Our first priority is to help you regain optimal health (ie relieve your pain); from there we strive to give you the knowledge you need to maintain your own health for a lifetime.
We accept cash, checks, and all major credit cards, as well as FSA/HSA. In addition, we offer several ways to make your healthcare more affordable. Please ask for details.
