First Visit

Brief Paperwork

Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with detailed information about you and your health history (or your child's). Paperwork can be printed at home and filled out at your convenience before your appointment. If you choose to fill paperwork out at the office, please arrive 15 minutes earlier than your scheduled appointment.

All patients:
HIPAA
Informed Consent

Adult patients - 18 years and older

Pediatric - 2-17 years

Infant/Baby - up to 2 years old

Consultation

Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with Dr. Margie to discuss your health history, your health concerns, and your future health goals.

History and Examination

Dr. Margie will determine the overall health of your spine and nervous system through a series of important tests. All tests are non-invasive and cause no discomfort (some might tickle!). The purpose of our examination is to determine if any areas of subluxation are present in your spine.

Dr. Margie utlizes the most advanced technology in chiropractic today for her examinations with patients - the InSight by CLA . This technology includes non-invasive scanning of the body's spine and nervous system which can give us a big picture of the underlying reasons for health concerns. Or...will detect a stress in your system prior to symptoms even beginning.



Once the scans are complete, Dr. Margie explain your results and what it means for your overall health and wellness. Patients will later have re-examinations as well to show comparions with future scans.

X-ray Studies

If X-rays are needed, Dr. Margie will order the appropriate films for you and/or your child. X-rays are not performed in our office but can be scheduled at other local facitlities. If you are getting your X-rays done through Dr. Margie's referral, please click here for more information on how to set up the appointment.

Your Report of Findings

After your first visit is finished, Dr. Margie will take time to review all of the findings from the examination, history, and consultation and formulate your specific Report of Findings.
Reports can typically be ready within a couple of days of the first visit. Most patients will not have any chiropractic treatment administered until the initial reports are all reviewed. On rare instances, Dr. Margie is able to accommodate this on the same day.
