During your first visit at ASC, most of the time is spent gathering information. You will complete the new patient paperwork and have a conversation with the doctor about your health history and what brought you to us. You'll also have a complete set of x-rays as well as a chiropractic, orthopedic and neurologic exam.
If you're in intense pain, we may begin treatment on your first visit, but usually we prefer to gather all the information and study it before we treat you.
Your first visit usually lasts between 45 minutes an an hour.
Our Report of findings
At your second visit our ASC doctors will share their report of findings by doing a complete case presentation. This is when they tell you what they learned from your first visit and when they offer you their best recommendation. They'll also explain to you what all of your options are.
Once your care has been agreed upon, it will begin. Your second visit usually lasts about 30-40 minutes.
