WELCOME TO OUR OFFICE
Our goal is to provide to you superior care. If at any time we feel as though our treatment is not sufficient for your condition, we will then refer you to the appropriate source. We hope your experience is educational as well. We will strive to teach you about Chiropractic, your specific condition, home management and prevention. Our goal is to provide you with relief, correct your problem to prevent recurrent flare-ups, and maintain the correction.
Your cooperation is absolutely essential for a successful outcome. Most conditions take TIME to develop and will take TIME to correct. In order for outcomes to be successful, we ask that you comply with the best of your ability to our recommendations for appointments, diet & nutrition, exercise and home care. Please understand that we are correcting an underlying cause, not just treating a symptom. In almost every instance, the underlying cause of a condition develops long before the symptoms appear. While we expect everyone to improve symptomatically, in some instances your symptoms may worsen initially as the healing process begins. Our technology allows us to confidently monitor your response and correct your condition to its ideal level. Every patient is unique and has a different correction point. We invite questions and/or concerns along the way. We want your experience at our clinic to be as pleasant as possible, and for you to be comfortable with the entire process.
Additional points of interest–
Information is powerful and gives you knowledge. We are here to EDUCATE you- Please do not hesitate to ask questions.
Our success in resolving your condition may rely heavily in your understanding and your expectations. Occasionally, a patient may have unreasonable expectations in spite of the expectation of the doctor. This usually results in frustration, and often times treatment is discontinued prematurely, and sadly the patient fails to benefit from our treatment. We are always happy to discuss treatment status or even options for adjunct treatment when indicated.
**Our office runs primarily on an appointment schedule. We ask that you allow 30-40 minutes per office visit. We will accommodate early and late arrivals as our schedule permits. If you have a time constraint, please inform one of our staff members upon arrival and we will be happy to accommodate you as best as we can. **
Thank you for the confidence you have placed in us, we look forward to giving you better quality of life. We hope your experience at our clinic is a great one, and that you will recommend others as well.
