FAQ About The Office

The first appointment lasts about 45-60 minutes as it entails a review of your complete medical history, orthopedic exam for areas of pain and then treatment. Doctors of Chiropractic are considered Primary Care Physicians which is why a thorough exam is done. The only time treatment would not be done at the first visit is if there is a contraindication to treatment where imaging would need first to ensure no injuries would occur from the treatment.
The Free 15 Minute Consultation allows you time to ask any questions you have about how she treats, insurance questions (answered to the best of our ability), areas of complaint that you would want worked on to see if it is something we can help with. Feel free to come in with a list of questions! No question is too silly!
