What to expect on your first visit:
The first visit is about 45 minutes to 1 hour in length. The doctor will spend some time taking a general health history and then a detailed history specific to the patients complaint. After that a thorough physical examination will be conducted. She will then provide a report of findings which includes the diagnosis and treatments required. If the doctor feels that advanced imaging is required she will inform the patient. Not all patients require advanced imaging, most do not and therefore the first treatment can be administered. The doctor will also give her recommendations on how many treatment may be required. Each subsequent treatment is about 30 minutes in length, depending on the areas being treated and what is required that day.
