Your First Visit

Information

Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family.  We will request that you bring with you any x-rays, CTs,  MRIs or other labs or studies in which you have recently had performed. Additionally, we will need to know all of the medicines you are taking. Of course, you will need to bring your insurance information. This information provides us with the data we need need to efficiently address your problem. Our office uses the latest, certified electronic record systems to make us more efficient for you. 


 

Examination

Next, you will go to an exam room where our staff will take your blood pressure, pulse and temperature and specific questions will be asked about your condition. Dr. Allen will further discuss your health-related problems,  listen to your concerns, and complete a comprehensive physical examination. Listening is a vital part of any history and physical exam process. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Allen to learn more about you, your condition and expectations as well as to determine if and how chiropractic care can meet your goals.


Diagnostics

Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays in our clinic or order a CT scan, bone scan, diagnostic ultrasound or MRI. Additionally, for your convience, blood or urine tests can be performed in our office . Of course, only tests that absolutely necessary for an accurate diagnosis will be ordered.

 

 


Report of Findings

Once the information is collected  and examinations are performed, Dr. Briggs Allen will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer all of your questions. Options for treatment will be discussed and should your condition be better treated by another healthcare provider an appropriate referral will be made. The more you understand about your problem, the easier it will be for you to make decisions and follow recommendations regarding your health.

   At the conclusion of your initial  appointment, if appropriate, your treatment may begin. This could include various types (one type does not fit all) of spinal manipulation, physical therapeutics, lifestyle modifcations, workplace ergonomics or simply suggestions for treatment you can do at home.  Healthcare is not a one sided event. To have good results the patient as well as the doctor must fully actively participate in all phases of the healing process.
