You should expect, on the initial visit, to be with the doctor for about 45 minutes. This allows us to spend time with you doing a thorough case history, evaluation and examination. If further tests, such as X-Rays, are needed, these will be obtained in order to more specifically help you with your problem.
In many cases we are able to perform treatment on the first visit to get you started on your road to recovery. Our goal is for you to be feeling better in as few visits as possible.
Many times we are asked how long will it take to feel better. This is a hard question to answer. It is dependent on the severity of your problem or injury, the individual and the length of time of the involved problem. In many cases we expect improvement early in the treatment process.
