In preparation for the chiropractic consultation, the patient will be asked to fill out forms with a series of background information about his/her symptoms & conditions. For your convenience, you may print and fill out the forms at home prior to the initial visit or the forms are available to fill out in the office when you arrive.
After the initial intake forms are complete, the patient then has a consultation with Dr. Kosak. This is when Dr. Kosak and the patient discuss medical history and major complaints and decide together if chiropractic may be beneficial for the condition(s) and what diagnostic procedures may be needed.
The office staff at this point will go over first day costs before any charges occur. Based upon the patient’s history, diagnostic x-rays may be performed in the office, if necessary, to reveal pathologies and to identify structural abnormalities. The patient will then undergo a thorough orthopedic/neurological exam performed by Dr. Kosak. After the exam, Dr. Kosak will then offer a light relief treatment for the day. All data gathered on the first visit will be assessed and a detailed treatment plan will be established and discussed on the second visit.
