Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a new member of our family! We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history, and information on your condition.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Yoon to discuss your health related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Yoon to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals, and resolve any issues.
After your consultation, Dr. Yoon will perform a complete a chiropractic examination, and begin by testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as necessary. Nothing will ever be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may refer you to have X-rays taken. These help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and they can alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays! In some cases, patients can easily identify their own misalignments and degeneration.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Yoon will give you a detailed report of all his findings, and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Yoon will discuss recommendations, and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Our family will always provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs, even if it means recommending you to a different physician for some of your issues.
