Your First Visit

For your convenience, now you can download your New Patient paperwork here. We're also happy to fax it to you, if you prefer, or you can wait until your first appointment and fill it in when you're here. Plan to arrive at least fifteen minutes before your scheduled appointment time if you plan on completing the forms in the office.

Please remember to contact your insurance company before you come in to verify what your policy covers for chiropractic care. We are happy to help you navigate your policy and provide support if you have questions regarding your insurance. However, it is important that you remember that your insurance is a contract between you (the patient) and the insurance company.

What to Expect During Your First Visit

Dr. Mark will review your information with you and will discuss your pain, discomfort and any issues relevent to your care. Following an examination, you can expect to receive a manipulation, if needed. Your first appointment will last approximately one hour.

Chiropractors do not give shots, prescribe medication, or do surgery. If Dr. Mark feels that you need X-rays, you will be scheduled for x-rays through a local facility.

Subsequent Visits

After your first visit, you can expect your subsequent visits to take about twenty minutes. Every patient is different and the frequency of your return visits can vary greatly. Keep in mind that ultimately you, the patient are the healer. We believe that YOU are in control of your care! We will recommend a course of treatment for you but it's up to you to decide what to do and what not to do.

Consultation

Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Mark Wasowski to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Mark Wasowski to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.

After your consultation, Dr. Mark Wasowski will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.

X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.

Report of Findings

Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Mark Wasowski will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

  1. How can you help me?
  2. How often do I need to come in?
  3. What will my treatment cost?

After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Mark Wasowski will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Mark Wasowski will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.

Treatment

At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.

Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
