What to Bring with You

We ask that you bring any pertinent information regarding your condition, such as recent X-rays or MRI reports.  Remember to bring your insurance card, also.

Patient Forms

Upon entering our office, we require completion of health history and patient information forms.  These forms provide information to help the doctor determine the nature and extent of your health condition.


Consultation

Next, you will have a complimentary consultation with Dr. Gary Lett to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Gary Lett to learn more about you, your condition, and  expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.


Examination

After your consultation, if you consent to receive treatment, Dr. Lett  will perform a chiropractic examination to determine the cause of your symptoms.  This may include spinal analysis, physical, orthopedic and neurologial tests.  Your case history and exmination findings will help determine your diagnosis and the most effective treatment plan based on your individual neesds.


X-Ray Studies

X-rays will only be taken if the doctor deems them necessary. 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.  "Seeing is knowing."


                         Treatment

 Upon completion of the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with treatment during this first visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage.  Treatment is interactive, so  you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.

 


 

 Schedule Your Next Appointment

You will be given an appointment time for your follow-up visit with Dr. Lett.  At this time the doctor will review his findings and recommended treatment options. 

It is our goal that you have a clear understanding of what is wrong and how as a team we will be able to obtain optimal results.

 


 

  Report of Findings and Plan of Care

After reviewing your health history,  goals, and examining your spine and any X-rays, Dr. Lett  will discuss recommendations and answer any questions including:

  1. How can you help me?
  2. How often do I need to come in?
  3. What  will  my treatment  cost?

Dr. Lett is well versed in diagnosis and treatment of neuromusculoskeletal conditions, many of which have failed to respond to typical medical treatment.  Because each patient is different, he believes in an individualized program to provide the best  treatment and  wellness program for your needs.


Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, the doctor may suggest a  wellness program  to incorporate outside of treatment.  If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches.  If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle.  Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan.  The purpose  of our wellness program is for  you  to achieve good spinal alignment, have a  healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
