Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete a few simple patient forms. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition. If you visit us on-line you can simply print out the forms, complete them at your convenience and bring them with you to your appointment.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Amodeo to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Amodeo to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations and to help him determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Amodeo will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. Nothing will be done in our office without your consent and there is no need to undress.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us to any serious spinal conditions.
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Amodeo will, in most instances, ask you to return so that he can thoroughly review your results and give you a detailed report of all findings. He will also answer any questions you may have at that time including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
