First Visit to our Dallas Office
New patients often remark how “homey” our practice is. That’s good, because our goal is to offer state-of-the-art chiropractic care in a comfortable surrounding. So, make yourself at home!
You’ll be greeted by name when you enter our practice and given a short tour to get you acquainted with our facilities. If you’ve already completed your admitting paperwork, great!
The purpose of your pre-care consultation is to discuss your health goals and see if you’re a good candidate for chiropractic care. If it looks promising, a thorough examination will help us identify the likely cause of your problem.
Our patients appreciate that we explain everything in advance. You should allow at least one hour for your first visit. You are welcome to bring children. We have a children’s play area where they can have fun while they wait their turn.
Second Visit – Report of Findings
On your report of findings visit, we explain your exam and x-ray findings, and how we may be able to help you. We’ll make recommendations designed to help you get and keep your health and begin treatment with your first specific chiropractic adjustment.
We call this the Report of Findings, which is scheduled within a day or two following your first visit. This two-visit approach accomplishes several things:
1. Reduces the length of your first visit
2. Gives us time to correlate our findings
3. Avoids overloading you with too much information
In certain circumstances, we make exceptions depending on your unique situation. But, for the most part, your first adjustment will take place after we review the Report of Findings together on your second visit.
A Typical Office Visit
After the investment of time needed on the first and second visit, many patients become concerned that every visit will be of equal length.
In a word: no. A typical visit may require just a few, highly-focused minutes.
But, don’t think the brevity of a regular visit lessens its value! With the groundwork laid, we can quickly size up your spine and nervous system, and assess your progress. Regular visits are where the true healing takes place.
Like a regular workout at the gym, each visit builds on the ones before. Miss a visit and we can lose the momentum necessary to make the needed changes.
We recognize your time is valuable. Remember, you are making an investment in your future by following the recommended visit protocol by your doctor for your individual case.
