Due to the time commitment of the first appointment, all new patients must confirm their appointment by 5pm the business day prior. We will call you the business day before and we must receive a verbal or email confirmation that you will be at your appointment. If you do not have voicemail set up, we will attempt to call twice the business day before. However, it is ultimately your responsibility to call back to confirm or cancel your appointment. New patients that do not confirm their appointment will have their appointment canceled and this time slot will be offered to other patients. All New Patients that confirm their appointment but fail to show up for their first appointment will not be permitted to reschedule with our office.
To save time on your first visit you may download, print off and fill out the paperwork ahead of time. If you are unable to do this before your first visit, please arrive 30 minutes before your appointment time to fill out this paperwork. Please be on time for your appointment and we strive to see patients right at their scheduled appointment time.
On your first visit you will spend about 30 minutes with Dr. Ryan Gutierrez. During this time he will perform a consultation to learn more about your health history and current health issues. You can discuss any questions or concerns you have as well. He will then perform a full chiropractic examination. Upon completion of the exam, he will determine if you are a good candidate for chiropractic care. If Dr. Ryan feels he can help you, he will perform a chiropractic adjustment on your first visit. After your adjustment, Dr. Ryan will discuss your chiropractic course of action. We do not use treatment plans in our office as every patients needs are unique. Dr. Ryan will discuss what he thinks it will take for you to reach your health goals.
Follow-up appointments will last approximately 15 minutes. During your appointments you will receive your chiropractic adjustment. Dr. Ryan may also give you exercises to perform at home to better facilitate your adjustments.
