What to Expect on your first visit

Step One

All new patients are requested to fill out the new patient paperwork as completely as possible BEFORE the appointment. The doctor really takes time to look at the answers to your questions as it helps him to understand your condition, and how to best serve your needs.

Step Two

Please read, review and sign all forms.

Step Three

A one-on-one consultation and exam will be scheduled with Dr. Loy to discuss your health issues and goals, uncover the layers of past damage and help determine what may be causing your health problems. To determine if you are the right fit for our office, you will be required to go through an examination and evaluation, including digital postural pictures, x-rays* (determined by the Doctor), a functional movement screen, palpation of the spine, etc. These tests help to determine the precise cause of your problem. *X-rays are performed at another location outside of the office

Step Four

At this time, the doctor will advise you if any additional tests such as MRI’s or laboratory tests that are needed. Also, you will be required to schedule another appointment for a “Report of Findings” with the doctor. The doctor will need time to review your case and make sure that we are the right office for you. In this report of findings, the doctor will be going over:

  1. What’s causing your problem.
  2. How it’s affecting your health right now.
  3. What is the appropriate course of action that needs to be taken to correct your problem.
  4. What are the time and financial commitments that need to be made to resolve your health problem.

Step Five

If you accept your care plan and we accept your case, we will start care and schedule your future appointments. Congratulations on taking the first step to better health naturally!
