Your First Visit
What to expect on your first visit:
Here at Trochim Family Chiropractic, we do our best to make you feel at home and help you receive the highest quality care possible. When you walk through our front door, you will be greeted with smiles by our friendly office staff. Click Here and fill out our patient intake form on your smart phone, tablet, or computer. This will not only save you time on your first visit, but also give our doctors the opportunity to get to know more about you and your condition prior to your appointment. Based on the information you provide on the intake forms, there may be additional, but minimal forms for you to electronically fill out in our office.
Once we have gathered all necessary information from you, you will be accompanied to the exam room by one of the office staff. There one of our doctors will talk with you about your medical history and then you will receive a thorough new patient examination. The examination involves simple physical tests and measuring your range of motion. From that point, the doctor will decide whether or not it will be necessary for you to receive spinal X-Rays. For your convenience, we have an X-ray unit on site and your X-rays will be taken immediately following your examination. To conclude your new patient visit, you will be accompanied back out to the front desk where our staff will schedule you for a Report of Findings.
On your second visit you will be presented with a Report of Findings, where the doctor will discuss with you your examination findings and any X-Ray imaging that was taken on the first visit. You will be given a well-thought out treatment plan as well as a financial care plan and payment options. Immediately following the report, you will begin care and receive your first adjustment. We strongly encourage your spouse or other support system attend the second visit with you so that they can understand how to best support you throughout your care. Feel free to ask any questions you have, as we want you to understand everything that’s going on concerning your care. You will then be on your way to better health!
Upon checkout from your second visit, you will be given a folder containing all of the doctor’s recommendations and at-home exercises with instructions.
