Being a new patient at any clinic can be very intimidating, especially for the first visit or two. At Wellness Professionals we try to eliminate as much of the discomfort and anxiety that comes along with being a new patient as much as possible. What most people do not know is that a consultation with one of our professionals (physical therapist, chiropractor, etc.) is absolutely free. In this first meeting symptoms and concerns can be discussed, and sometimes solutions can be reached just within the free consultation! If it is necessary to take x-rays or other use other methods to obtain objective information then there will be an associated charge. Most patients do not require x-rays on he first visit, and do receive their consultation at no cost.
The second visit to our clinic usually consists of another meeting with one of our professionals to discuss the findings of the first visit. During this time we will also look at different treatment options, and will work with you in order to determine the most effective and convenient treatment option for each individual. We understand that time is a big concern for most patients, and we try to schedule our appointments in the best interest of each patient. We also try to tailor the treatments in order to meet any time constraints that a patient may have.
Once the treatment plan has been decided upon, we begin treatment. Treatment may last anywhere from ten minutes to an hour depending on the type of care you are receiving. if you are only receiving a chiropractic adjustment your treatment may not last long, but if you are going through a full therapy session with our physical therapist.
Each of our providers work hand in hand in order to ensure the most effective and efficient treatment possible for each of our patients. Treatments usually progress over a period of six weeks, and in this time most of our patients see tremendous improvement without need of more treatments. Once all treatments have been completed, we continue to offer maintenance care in order to keep patients on the track to wellness and a healthier life even after they have recovered from what brought them to us initially. We truly care about our patients, and nothing is more fulfilling to us than helping our patients achieve a higher quality of life through comprehensive care!
