At your first visit, we will have you fill out patient intake forms and discuss insurance and what payment method will be the right choice for you. You can always find and print off our patient intake forms in the New Patient Center above.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Bantz to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Bantz will take your baseline vitals, and complete a chiropractic examination and adjustment, however, nothing will be done in our office without your consent. Your first appointment takes about 30 minutes, and subsequent visits are 15 minutes.
While we do not take X-rays in our facility, if you have recently had x-rays taken, we may ask that you bring in a copy for Dr. Bantz to review. X-rays may 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 misalignment and degeneration themselves.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, we can answer any questions you may have including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Eric Bantz will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Your health and success are our top priority, and we will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs. Sometimes, those wellness programs may include ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches.
