What to expect your first few visits to our clinic.
Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our New Patient Forms. These can be downloaded and completed prior to your first visit. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on any of your conditions.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Castillo to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for him to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals
After your consultation, Dr. Castillo will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may order X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop
the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
Report of Findings
Once all examinations have been performed and Dr. Castillo has studied the results, you will receive a report of findings from him. Usually, this will occur at your second visit. During this report he will thoroughly explain his findings as well as offer recommendations and treatment options. The purpose of this report is not to tell you what to do, but rather to educate you about your spinal health and assist you in making an informed decision about your health care needs.
Our goal is to answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, the doctor will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Castillo will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
