NEW PATIENT PAPERWORK
You have three options for filling out new patient paperwork.
IN OUR OFFICE
Arrive 15 minutes early for your appointment, and fill out the paperwork in our office.
ABOUT YOUR FIRST VISIT
Your initial visit with us is a very important one.
We want you to choose the option that is best for you. Then it is important that we share information with you, such as possible side-effects of treatment, our expectations for payment, and how we handle your private health information, as outlined in HIPPA. Currently, we have all of this paperwork in our office so you do not have to print it at home. Most of these forms require that you read them and sign them.
Once you have completed your paperwork, we will go over your current condition and health history with you. This makes sure that we have all the information we need to give you the best care possible.
Once a treatment plan is in place and all needed information has been obtained, I will be able to begin treatment. This will usually be during your first visit. Your initial visit may include chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, therapies, and/or soft tissue work.
Your Role – If you are able to do anything at home to improve your condition and speed up your care, I will send you home with the information. This could include simply using ice or heat, using natural supplements, stretches, exercises, or lifestyle changes.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM MY FIRST VISIT TO A CHIROPRACTOR?
While most patients do not actually begin their chiropractic treatment during their first visit, there are some things you can expect. With your first visit to a Denver chiropractor, patients can expect the following:
- Completing patient paperwork.
- A complete physical examination.
- X-ray studies (in certain cases).
- Development of a personalized treatment plan made just for you.
- The opportunity to ask any questions.
YOUR ROLE IN TREATMENT
Not all of my patients run marathons or compete at professional levels. Most of my patients are everyday people that want to be active and pain-free. My role is an advisor. You tell me where you want to go and I will help you get there.
During your treatment, I will make recommendations. This may include treatment frequency, therapies, home activities that can accelerate your care, such as exercise or stretching, vitamins or supplements that may help you heal, dietary changes, and activities to avoid that may be aggravating your condition, such as poor posture at work. This being said, I realize that we live in the real world and some things cannot be avoided or done. I understand that finances get in the way and sometimes, as humans, we just like doing things that are bad for us. You and I will discuss my recommendations and together we will come up with a realistic treatment plan that will work for you.
STAGES OF CARE
Not only is every patient unique, but so is each injury.
- The severity of your injury.
- How long you waited before seeking care.
- Whether you come in for regular chiropractic check-ups.
- The details of your medical history.
- Overall health and fitness level.
- Genetics and family history.
After your initial exam, I am able to provide you with a good estimate concerning your treatment needs. At each appointment, I’ll check in to determine what needs to be treated during that session and to also gauge how you are responding to your treatment plan. This way, I am able to immediately make any changes if needed. I have found that all of my patients go through the same stages during recovery, just at different speeds.
