We Explain Everything First

Your first visit to our office is your chance to tell us about you. You’ll be greeted by Janet, our office manager, and asked to fill out some paperwork — basic information about you and your reasons for seeking care. Then, you’ll meet with Dr. DeGroat who will review your case history with you in detail. From there, Dr. DeGroat will perform a thorough evaluation of your spine and nervous system, including orthopedic, neurologic and chiropractic examinations, computerized spinal scans and x rays as needed. Once the exams are completed, you’ll return to Janet to schedule your next visit – your “Report of Findings”. The total time for your first visit usually averages about 45 minutes.

As you can see, this first visit is all about gathering information about you and your health. Between your first and second visits, the doctor will review all of your exam findings, x rays and case history information to determine the best course of care in your case. He’ll also compile a written summary of your exam findings to review with you on your next visit.

Patient appreciate that we explain everything in advance!
