What to Expect
On your first visit our receptionist will welcome you to our clinic. We will request that you complete our patient forms. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Next you’ll have a consultation with our staff to discuss your health related problems and concerns for which you’re seeking care. This initial consultation is to help us determine how we can meet your needs and goals.
After consultation Dr. Turner will perform a complete chiropractic examination consisting of orthopedic, neurological, postural, and physical tests. This examination will be done with your cooperation and consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take x-rays to help us further diagnose and create an effective treatment plan for you. These x-rays can then be used to explain your condition.
Report of Findings
Once your history and examination are complete, then Dr. Turner can explain all of his findings and answer your questions. This is called a Report of Findings. Questions answered during this time are commonly: Can you help me? How often do I need to come? What will my treatment cost? This Report of Findings allows Dr. Turner a chance to discuss his recommendations for your condition and whether he can help you.
At the end of this initial appointment you can choose to get started with your first treatment. This may include chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy or soft tissue work. Treatment is always explained, and your feedback helps Dr. Turner understand any concerns and make your treatment appropriate for you.
