First Visit

NEW PATIENTS

As a new patient to this practice, we will ask you to complete a Confidential Health Questionnaire and bring any xays, CT Scans or MRI’s you may have had taken in the past. The Chiropractor will then discuss your personal health issues and goals in greater detail and perform a detailed examination. It is important we obtain as much information as possible so an accurate diagnosis can be made before we commence treating you. We will refer you for xrays if they are required. Most patients will be treated at their initial consultation.

Please allow 1 Hour for your initial consultation.

Booking Deposit:   Unfortunately we have been forced to take a $30 card deposit due to the high number of people not showing up for their initial appointment.  This will come off your initial consultation fee.  The deposit is only non-refundable whereby you fail to show for your appointment or cancel with short notice. Should you need to change your appointment please try to give us 24 hours notice so that somebody in need of care can take your place.

HOW OFTEN WILL I HAVE TO SEE A CHIROPRACTOR?

Our first priority is to make you comfortable and feeling better in the shortest amount of time. However problems which have been lingering for a long time rarely have a quick fix. In most cases a treatment program outlining the type of treatment which will be best suited to your body, rehabilitation exercises and home management and ergonomic advice will be discussed at your second visit. Your program is based on a collaboration of information obtained during your initial consultation. In the first couple of weeks we may need to see you more frequently and then less often. Not unlike going to a gym or embarking on a weight loss program, each visit works and builds on the previous visit.

REFERRALS AND PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE

You do not need a referral to see a Chiropractor.
