What to expect
1st Visit: Patient Forms
Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your major complaints.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Chris Perkins to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Perkins to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Perkins 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.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays. 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.
2nd Visit: Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Chris Perkins will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- What’s wrong?
- Is Perkins Family Wellness the right place for you?
- How much time will be involved?
- How much will you spend in order to get the best results
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Perkins will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Chris Perkins will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of this appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments in one or more areas. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
