First Visit

Brief Paperwork
Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition.

Consultation

Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.

History & Examination

In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.

X-Ray & Laboratory Studies

Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays and/or blood/urine studies to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.

Same Day Treatment for Acute Conditions

Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, acute patients will generally be provided with their palliative treatment during this first visit. Most of the time treatment will begin after a complete and timely study of your condition and a report of findings made to you on your second visit.

Home Instructions

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. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
