What to Expect on Your First Visit:
- You will be greeted and welcomed by Dr. Bob 🙂
- You will receive some new patient forms to complete, which usually takes about 10-15 minutes.
- If you are trying to use insurance please bring your most current insurance card or the insurance card of the insured, a method of paying for your co-pay or co-insurance. Checks, cash, HSA, debit cards & Venmo are accepted.
- Dr. Bob will then perform a new patient holistic intake, consultation and physical examination. He will listen to your health concerns. Anything discussed in your session is confidential.
- A holistic chiropractic treatment would follow; the length of treatment can vary from 3o, 60, 75 minutes depending upon what is needed. Some other chiropractic offices may spend five minutes with you and are less expensive. Healing is more of a process & a dialogue.
- There are different types of chiropractic adjustments. Dr. Bob Seiler, chiropractic physician, Doctor of Chiropractic, DC, uses a neuro-mechanical instrument which is more gentle than an Activator, which allows Dr. Bob to adjust all the vertebrae in your spine and to lessen the muscle tightness of the erector spinae muscles. There is also a manual chiropractic adjustment which elicits an audible release of pressure, which stimulates and calms your sympathetic and para-sympathetic nervous system. Depending on your condition Dr. Bob will choose what he thinks is the best type of chiropractic adjustment/care for you. If you’re uncomfortable with a manual “popping chiropractic adjustment” Dr. Bob will not deliver that.
- Feedback, recommendations, options to your chiropractic care: usually 4-6 holistic chiropractic sessions are recommended to see how your body responds to our holistic chiropractic care and to help Dr. Bob determine the best methods and technology to use for your treatment. If any imaging is needed like x-rays, MRI’s, CT Scans, ultrasound it can be referred out to a near-by imaging clinic.
- Parking is available about twenty-five feet from our reception area. You do not need to park on the adjacent street. If you have recent blood tests, lab work, x-rays, MRI’s (those within 9 months) you can also bring that information to your new patient appointment.
