What to Expect on Your First Visit at Health First Wellness Center
Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Next, you will have a consultation with our doctors to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for our doctors to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, our doctors will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
4. X-ray or Other Imaging (MRI, CT, US) and/or Lab Work
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays, order an MRI or CT, and/or collect blood as well. For musculoskletal conditions X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
5. Report of findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, our doctors will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, our doctors will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Our doctors will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
