What to Expect at Health Center of Hillsborough
If you’ve ever gone to a social event where you didn’t know anyone, you know how uncomfortable that can make you feel. Our goal is to eliminate every shred of apprehension and make you feel at home.
Since chiropractic care involves a series of visits, with each one building on the ones before, it’s important that our relationship can go the distance. We’ve found that one of the best ways to have successful patient relationships is to explain everything in advance. No surprises!
The more you understand who we are, what we do and why we do it, the better results you’ll enjoy. It’s as simple as that.
So, check us out here. Poke around. Get to know us. Then, contact our Hillsborough chiropractic office to make an appointment so we can get to know you.
- First Visit. To find out if we can help you, we ask questions and listen.
- Second Visit. We’ll report what we found and answer all your questions.
- Regular Visit. A typical visit will be much shorter, but just as important!
Your First Visit
New patients often remark how “homey” our office is. That’s good, because our goal is to offer state-of-the-art chiropractic care in a comfortable surrounding.
Please make yourself at home. You’ll find plenty of convenient parking across the street. You’ll be greeted and welcomed when you enter our office and offered a cup of tea.
If you’ve already completed your admitting paperwork, great! If not, after doing so you will meet with your doctor.
The purpose of your consultation with the doctor is to discuss your health goals and see if chiropractic, acupuncture, nutritional counseling, and/or massage therapy is likely to help you. Your doctor is invested in your care and will not rush you in this first visit as he gains a thorough understanding of your health history. Following the consultation, a comprehensive examination will help identify the cause of your problem. You may expect this first visit to take up to an hour to complete.
Patients appreciate that we explain everything in advance!
Your Second Visit
On your second visit we explain what we found and how we may be able to help you.
After we study your health history and correlate our examination findings, we’ll offer to give you your first treatment.
During your subsequent visits, we’ll make recommendations designed to help you get and keep your health.
After the investment of time needed on the first and second visits, many patients become concerned that every visit will be of equal length.
In a word: no. A typical practice visit may require just five to 10 minutes.
But don’t think the brevity of a regular visit lessens its value! With the groundwork laid, we can quickly size up the condition of your spine and nervous system, adjust you and get you on your way.
Like a regular workout at the gym, each visit builds on the ones before. Miss a visit and you can lose the momentum necessary to make the needed changes.
We recognize your time is valuable. So we do everything possible to run on time and minimize the impact on your busy life. Call our Hillsborough chiropractic office to learn more!
