Going to a chiropractor is a new experience for many people. Maybe you've heard about chiropractic through a friend or have done some research online. It's possible that you are just fed up with living in pain or suffering from your particular health condition; and, it's time to do something about it. In either case, your first visit with our chiropractor will really be about you getting to know our doctor and discussing with her your history, current condition, and future health goals.
As with any doctor's visit, you'll begin with filling out the necessary intake forms via our kiosk system. Due to the amount of time this may take, new patients are encouraged to complete these forms prior to their arrival via the email link provided after scheduling the new patient appointment. Upon meeting with the doctor, you'll discuss your concerns and expectations for care as well as have the chance to ask any questions you may have. Dr. Brooks will then perform a detailed physical examination and possibly order diagnostic imaging (x-rays, MRI's, CT scans, etc) only if medically necessary, and/or laboratory tests to better assess your current state or physical health. This will conclude the first visit. Please note that chiropractic services or treatment are not rendered on the first visit (no exceptions). Dr. Brooks strongly believes in having adequate time to consider your health history and your examination findings before rendering any care.
Upon completion of your first visit, an attempt will be made to schedule you for your Report of Findings. It is during this visit that Dr. Brooks will inform you of your x-ray/MRI/CT findings (if applicable) and examination findings; and, if she believes chiropractic care is an option for resolving your health issues. Should it be determined that your condition is one that may benefit from chiropractic care, Dr. Brooks will then offer you specific treatment recommendations which may include chiropractic services, nutritional supplements, or healthcare products. In the event that chiropractic care is not a valid option for your condition, Dr. Brooks will refer you to the necessary healthcare specialist or provider.
