Upon entering our office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition. For your convenience, we have this paperwork available online so you can complete it prior to your appointment.
Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, potential treatment options and goals of your care.
History and Examination
In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition and history. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.
Digital X-ray Studies
Your specific condition may require us to order x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.
Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.
Schedule Your Next Appointment
You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit usually within 24-48 hours where we will discuss in greater detail your findings from the exam, recommendations for care and full financial disclosure so you know what your out of pocket will be for those recommendations.
