Brief Paperwork Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition.
Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.
History and Examination
In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.
In most cases, treatment will be performed right after the history and initial examination. The doctor will go over the treatment options with you to formulate a treatment plan that is most suitable for you.
Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.
Schedule Your Next Appointment
The doctor will discuss how frequency you will need to return for your condition and your prognosis. You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit.
