    • All patients must have a valid state or federally issued ID card to be seen.  If you would like us to bill your insurance company, please bring your insurance card as well.  
  • I had an x-ray/MRI/etc. done previously.  Should I bring it with me?
    • If you have copies of pertinent medical records and/or tests, feel free to bring them along for the doctor to review.
  • Do I need x-rays to be seen?
    • A full examination will be performed prior to treatment.  Based on what is found during the exam, x-rays may be necessary to safely and effectively proceed with care.  If needed, we will send you to a local imaging center for x-rays.
  • I'm pregnant, do I need a note from my OB to be treated?
    • No note is needed.  Prior to any examination and treatment, Dr. Adrienne will discuss your pregnancy and any related health concerns to ensure Chiropractic is a good fit for you.

    • Be comfy!  We recommend wearing comfy clothes which allow your body to move without restriction.  If you're experiencing discomfort in a shoulder or knee, be sure to wear or bring clothes that will allow us to examine the affected area.  
  • How long will my appointment last?
    • New chiropractic patient visits typically last 40-60 minutes, depending on complexity.  Routine chiropractic visit lengths vary based on what treatment the doctor recommends.  We recommend planning 10-20 minutes for a routine visit.

Commonly asked questions

HISTORY: To begin your appointment, Dr. Adrienne will review your medical history and ask questions regarding your current symptoms.  

EXAM: A full examination will be performed on ALL new patients.  The exam will consist of a variety of neurological assessments and orthopedic tests to determine the cause of any presenting symptoms and/or pain.  You may experience temporary mild discomfort during the exam.  An exam is required for all new patients and any existing patients who have not been under active care for a prolonged period of time.

REPORT OF FINDINGS: Once a detailed history has been obtained and a full examination performed, Dr. Adrienne will discuss her findings with you and answer any questions you may have regarding your diagnosis, treatment plan, etc.  

TREATMENT: We customize a treatment plan to fit each individual patient and case.  We will typically begin treatment on the first visit.  In some cases, further imaging or evaluation may be needed to safely and effectively begin treatment.  If the doctor has any concerns or referrals, she will present them to you in the Report of Findings portion of your visit.

OUR GOAL is to get you back to doing the things you enjoy, as quickly and effectively as we can.  In almost all cases, a follow up appointment is necessary to assess your response to care, and will be scheduled at the front desk at the end of your appointment.  

If you have any questions or concerns during your appointment, please notify Dr. Adrienne or one of our staff members ASAP.
