First Appointment

What to Expect…
At Your First Appointment

At your first appointment you can expect to speak with your assigned overseeing Doctor.  Your Doctor will determine your appropriate diagnosis and care plan following your first visit.  After your first visit, your Doctor will review your examination results along with any additional images or information provided.  Your care plan will be laid out to you and will consist of recommended therapies specific to your condition, along with your recommended visit frequency at your second visit.  You will also be given the option to blend additional Eastern Medicine therapies along with your current care plan if desired.  In many cases, this harmonious blend of these therapies not only accelerates, but also can improve your healing outcome measures (Zhang, 2019).  If you have questions concerning other treatments you are currently undergoing or would like to pursue, please discuss this with your overseeing Doctor to see if concurrent care is right for you.  

All of the therapies utilized at our clinic are non-invasive, however, if surgery or additional procedures are required to treat your condition, these recommendations will be made immediately following your first visit, or in less acute cases, after 6-8 weeks of treatment if significant improvement has not been demonstrated.  Getting your life back on track and letting you feel like you again, is always our primary goal.  

We thank you for trusting us with you and your family’s greatest asset, your health! 

At Your Second Appointment.

You can expect your overseeing Doctor to first review your examination results with you. During this time, the cause of your symptoms will be addressed along with your treatment recommendations. Unless additional studies are required, you will receive your First Adjustment at this visit.

This visit typically lasts anywhere from 15-30 minutes.
