Your First Visit to Our Norwood Practice
New patients often remark how “homey” the practice is. That’s good, because my goal is to offer state-of-the-art chiropractic care in a comfortable surrounding.
Make Yourself at Home
You’ll find plenty of convenient parking and a well-lit parking lot. You’ll be greeted by name when you enter the office and given a short tour to get you acquainted with our facilities.
If you’ve already completed your admitting paperwork, great! If not, after doing so you’ll have a consultation with Dr. Marc.
We Explain Everything First
The purpose of your consultation with the doctor is to discuss your health goals and see if Chiropractic is likely to help you. If it looks promising, a thorough examination will help identify the cause of your problem.
Your Second Visit
After we study your health history and correlate our 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. 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 Dr. Marc, 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.
In a word: no. A typical office visit may require just 5 to 10 minutes.
But don’t think the brevity of a regular visit lessens its value! With the groundwork laid, we can quickly size up the condition of 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 ones before. Miss a visit and you can lose the momentum necessary to make the needed changes.
We recognize your time is valuable. So we do everything possible to run on time and minimize the impact on your busy life.
