You will be warmly welcomed and made to feel at home. Help is on its way!

New patients often remark on how ‘beautiful’ and ‘relaxing’ our office is. We’re pleased, because our goal is to offer you the best chiropractic care in a comfortable surrounding.

When we make your first appointment we will send you an email confirmation which contains links to the new patient forms we will need you to complete before your appointment  – this will give us your basic details and some information regarding you or your child’s current and previous health history.

You should set aside approximately an hour for your first appointment. When you come into our reception area one of our clinic assistants, Marlene or Marie, will be here to greet you and help you feel at ease while you wait for your chiropractor.

Consultation & Examination

Then, during your consultation, your chiropractor will ask you a few questions and do a lot of listening. This not only allows us to get to know each other, it also gives us the opportunity to discuss your unique health goals, relieve any concerns you have and establish if chiropractic is likely to help you. If it looks promising, we will then continue with a thorough examination, so we can identify the cause of your problem.

If after your examination specialist imaging is needed, for example an X-ray, we will arrange this for you quickly and directly with the medical imaging department at the Gilbert Bain Hospital.

On your Second Visit we will review all of the exam findings from today’s initial visit.
