Initial Office Visit Expectations
Initial exams last 45 minutes or more. We want to make sure we have listened to your story and performed a thorough evaluation. Because of this, we will only evaluate up to two different areas at a time.
We will gladly review any x-rays or MRI’s that you have already had on your injury.
We will perform a physical exam. Our hands and eyes are critical to your care.
In most instances we will also perform a diagnostic ultrasound to help confirm the physical exam and gain a better understanding of your injury. This helps determine the severity of your injury and your best possible treatment options.
We will provide an excellent educational session. Knowing that patients understand their injury and all possible treatment options is very important to us.
You will not feel pressured. We like to say, “The ball is in your court—YOU decide the direction you want to take for treatment.”
