What You can Expect on Your First Visit
Hi, I’m Dr. Joe Papia and if you are considering becoming a new patient in my office, I wanted to just take a minute and walk you through a typical first visit here at the office.
First you would fill out the information that will be give us some details for the purpose of your visit, past history, family history.
As soon as you finish with your paper work we try to get you back immediately into our consultation room.
I will go over the paperwork with you and try to pinpoint exactly where your problem is, how it started, and maybe how severe it is and how long you have had it.
That will lead me directly into my examination and what I need to do for the examination.
Based upon what we find in the consultation and exam, it may be necessary to take some x-rays.
We may or may not take x-rays depending on your condition.
The x-rays are either going to confirm the consultation and examination findings or tell me there are other findings such as arthritis.
We may treat you right away or start some therapy.
Therapy is geared towards giving you some relief or alleviating some of the pain and muscle spasms.
Start to finish it should take right about 20-30 minutes depending how long it took you to do the initial paperwork.
That’s what a typical first visit would look like.
I look forward to helping you.
