Before the first appointment, please ask your patient to complete our new patient form. It provides us with a complete picture of their past history, medication and any other comorbidities. Having this information to hand ensures that the first appointment can be focused on helping the patient with their pain.
A new patient appointment takes between 30 and 45 minutes and, as noted above, includes a full evaluation, assessment and treatment plan. Where suitable and necessary, some interventions can be offered on the spot, with follow up to ensure patient satisfaction.
Our aim is to keep the patient well informed at all times and we usually send the referring clinician our report, as well. Please feel free to contact any of our clinicians at any time before, during or after treatment if you would like to discuss your patient’s progress.
