Going to a new health care provider can be a little intimidating and stressful. The core of a patient/client relationship is built on trust, and it naturally takes some time for that trust to develop. You may have had negative experiences with health care providers in your past perhaps because you were dissatisfied with their response to you, or maybe you just did not see the results that you were promised. While trust can be difficult to build in one visit, the team at St. Paul Chiropractic & Natural Medicine Center works hard to make you feel comfortable, important, and heard in your very first visit with us. Your first (and subsequent) visits will be positive and productive to meet your unique needs. Here is what you can expect when you make an appointment with our staff:
● Warm greeting from our receptionist and office staff. We can answer any questions you have about insurance coverage, duration of appointment and provide any other resources that you might need.
● Your first appointment begins with a consultation session, where our staff can get to know you, listen to your concerns about your health, ask questions about injuries, pain and discuss your goals for your treatment. We listen carefully to you so that we can design a treatment plan that meets your individual needs.
● Also, during your first appointment, we will complete a spinal scan as well as an examination so that we can better understand any physical issues that you might be dealing with. We may also take x-rays if necessary.
● After your first appointment, our staff will carefully review notes from your first visit as well as results from your spinal scan and x-rays. When you come for your second visit, you will receive the results of these scans and our staff will talk to you about our recommendations for your individualized treatment plan. We make sure and talk to you in a way that you can understand so that you are an active participant in the process. We are open to questions at any step of the process and consider us partners working together to achieve your optimal health.
