Your First Visit
 
What to Expect On Your First Visit

Our office is centrally located and easy to get to from just about anywhere in the CNY region. Our location is safe, well lit and has plenty of parking. (click here for directions)

You should plan to be in the office for about 90 minutes on your first visit.

Once inside the office, our warm friendly staff will be available to greet you and assist you with your initial "new patient" paperwork. We participate with most insurance plans, and also offer affordable cash plans for those without chiropractic coverage.

Our chiropractic assistant will take and notate your height & weight, grip strength, and blood pressure. You will then meet with the doctor for a thorough medical history, examination, and consultation.
This consultation is your opportunity to ask any questions as well as express any concerns or expectations you may have regarding your health.

In some cases x-rays may be necessary to help determine an exact diagnosis. X-rays can usually be done at our office and the doctor will go over the results with you. As part of the consultation the doctor will determine a diagnosis and treatment plan with you, OR if your problem is not a chiropractic case at this time, we will refer you to an appropriate specialist.

If we do accept your case, treatment is often started on the first visit. Most patients leave our office after the first visit feeling better. You will be given a 'goody bag' with sample products and self-care information to help you get started on your return to feeling great!

Follow up care includes regular treatment, exercise and lifestyle recommendations with periodic reevaluations to chart progress. Our primary focus is to help you feel better as quickly as possible. We understand that your life does not revolve around going to the doctor and that your ultimate goal is to be able to do the things you find meaningful while feeling good! We will aim to help you achieve that goal on an ongoing basis. First working towards symptom relief and secondly striving for long-term healing so you are less likely to have a recurrence of the problems that you came in to resolve.

Our bodies are similar to machines in that they require reasonable daily care and periodic maintenance. Once your symptoms improve we will guide you towards better overall health with recommendations appropriate for your situation.

Sometimes collaborative care with other providers is indicated to achieve optimal results. Your primary care doctor can help you with pain medications when needed in severe cases. Recommendations and referrals for physical therapy and massage therapy also may be added to your treatment plan.

Diet, exercise, posture and nutritional recommendations are usually reviewed.

Chiropractic care can 'recalibrate' the alignment and functio
n in your body. With healthful living and proper body mechanics many people find an improved quality of life returning that they never thought they would have again.

This is our goal for you!
