First Visit

NEW PATIENTS

As a new patient to this practice, we will ask you to complete a Confidential Health Questionnaire. We will then discuss your personal health issues 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.

  • Please bring along any Xrays or CT scan and MRI reports you may have.
  • Allow 1 hour for your initial consultation
  • If xrays are required we will refer you to a radiologist nearby.
  • You do not require a referral to see a Chiropractor.

PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE

Consultations are covered by all Private Health funds. Claims may be processed through the HICAPS system whereby you pay only the gap at your consultation.

  • Please bring along your health fund membership card.

GP REFERRALS

If your GP has referred you under a Chronic Disease Management plan, please bring your referral and care plan with you. Your consultation will be billed as normal however we will be able to process your claim via the HICAPS system and medicare will credit your nominated bank account usually within 24 hours.

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
