Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a 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. Darryl Thomson to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for the doctor to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Thomson will complete a thorough chiropractic examination that includes a spinal and postural exam. Nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays, as well. X-rays alerts us of any serious spinal conditions, such as misalignments and degeneration, and helps us determine the most effective treatment plan for you.
The Doctor's Report of Findings
The doctor's report is done in a small group setting on your second visit to the clinic and just prior to your personal review of the doctor's findings. In the group report, Dr. Thomson will explain how structural chiropractic works and the scientific evidence supporting the specialized work we do at Better Life Chiropractic. The doctor's report is very detailed and informative. It is very important that your spouse or loved one comes with you. Health information can be very complicated and very difficult to explain to a loved one. It is easier for a spouse to come to the report and ask the doctor questions directly about your condition.
After the presentation, Dr Thomson will review the results of your examination privately with you and your loved one. The doctor will outline a course of action that will include the suggested length of care, the regularity of treatment, as well as the financial plan for your treatment. At the end of your private report, you will have all the information you require about your condition and the doctor's recommended health care plan.
Better Life Chiropractic is a family chiropractic office. We believe in helping families improve their well being and live life to the fullest.
