What to Expect on Your First Visit
Your first visit at our office typically takes anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour, depending on your condition, medical history, and how quickly you fill out your intake paperwork! If you'd like to save 10-15 minutes on your first visit, you may print the intake paperwork (located on the "New Patient Forms" or "Your First Visit" tabs above), fill it out, and bring it with you to the office.
Please be sure to bring the following items to your appointment to make the process run more smoothly:
1. Picture ID
2. Insurance card (this can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org)
3. Any relevant medical records including x-rays or MRIs, if you have them
On your first visit, you will be greeted by our friendly staff, and asked to present a picture ID and your insurance card, if you have insurance. Once your intake paperwork has been completed, you will be taken to one of our exam rooms, pictured on the right. Once seated, Dr. Fleming will enter the room and begin your consultation. You can expect your doctor to go over your medical history and discuss the reason for your visit, as well as your current health goals. Dr. Fleming will give you a brief explanation of chiropractic and will also be given several opportunities to have any questions or concerns answered and addressed. Dr. Fleming will then perform a thorough physical exam to investigate the cause of your symptoms. The exam will have many of the same components as a typical visit to your medical doctor, with a few differences. The doctor will use her hands to examine your spine and the overlying tissues to evaluate for any joint or soft tissue abnormalities. This will help her arrive at a diagnosis and select appropriate treatment options. After your evaluation, the doctor will discuss your condition with you, along with your available treatment options. You will be given a personal folder to take home, containing information on your treatment plan and your condition. You are encouraged to ask questions at any time during this process and we are more than happy to provide you with more literature or research evidence on various topics in health at your request!
