If you’ve never sought chiropractic care before, here’s what to expect at your first visit:
- Before you arrive at our Anoka office: Dress comfortably and be sure to bring your photo ID, insurance card, and any health information you feel could affect your treatment.
- Checking in at the front desk: Upon arrival at the clinic, we will gather all relevant information, including health insurance. We will ask you to finalize paperwork while we verify your insurance coverage.
- Initial exam and treatment: Dr. Will will examine you and explain his findings to help you understand your condition. He’ll then present you with a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs before initiating any therapy. If you consent to the plan, Dr. Will will begin your treatment at this first session.
- X-rays: In some instances, x-rays, CT scans or MRIs may be necessary to rule out more serious injury prior to adjustments, as well as to determine the best course of treatment. If you need any imaging services, we will refer you to your primary care physician or to a local imaging center such as Centers for Diagnostic Imaging (CDI) or Suburban Imaging. Depending on your insurance plan, you may be responsible for partial or full payment of the imaging services.
In total, your first appointment will last approximately 50-60 minutes, including completion of paperwork.
