If you've ever gone to a social event where you didn't know anyone, you know how uncomfortable that can make you feel. Our goal is to eliminate every shred of apprehension and make you feel at home.
Since chiropractic care usually involves a series of visits, it's important that our relationship can go the distance. We've found that one of the best ways to have successful patient relationships is to explain everything in advance. No surprises!
The more you understand who we are, what we do and why we do it, the better results you'll enjoy. It's as simple as that.
Check us out, poke around and get to know us.
Then contact us to make an appointment so we can get to know you.
We offer our paperwork online so you can complete it in the convenience of your own home if you choose.
On this visit, our receptionist will greet you and welcome you as a new patient to our office. We will request you fill out our new patient forms and we will obtain your insurance information. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition. Next you will have a consultation with Dr. Michael Keehn to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.
Your first visit is designed to learn more about you, your condition and your expectations to determine whether chiropractic care will help meet your goals. After your consultation, Dr. Michael Keehn will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes, your ability to turn and bend, as well as neurologic, orthopedic, postural and physical examinations. At this point, Dr. Michael Keehn will determine which x-rays will need to be taken, if any. After discussing with you your history and your goals, examining your spine and reviewing your x-rays or tests, Dr. Michael Keehn will discuss his recommended treatment plan with you. In some cases, patients may be provided their first treatment at the conclusion of the appointment.
After we study your health history and correlate examination findings, we'll make recommendations designed to help you get and keep your health. We call this the Report of Findings.
This is usually attended to on your second visit, which may be later the same day or the following day. This two-visit approach accomplishes several things:
• Reduces the length of your first visit
• Gives us time to correlate our findings
• Avoids overloading you with too much information
In certain situations, and in the professional judgment of your chiropractor, we sometimes make exceptions. It just depends on your unique situation.
After the investment of time needed on the first and second visits, many patients become concerned that every visit will be of equal length.
Follow up visits usually require just a few highly focused minutes.
But don't think the brevity of a follow up visit lessens its value! With the groundwork laid, we can quickly size up your spine and nervous system, adjust you and get you on your way.
Like a regular workout at the gym, each visit builds on the previous visit. Miss a visit and we can lose the momentum necessary to make the needed changes.
We recognize your time is valuable. We do everything possible to run on time and minimize the impact on your busy life.
