Your First Visit
Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Jeremy Turley or Dr. Debra Corum to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Jeremy Turley or Dr. Debra Corum to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how our care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, your doctor 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 take 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 the information is collected and examinations are performed, your doctor will give you a detailed report of all findings and 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, Dr. Jeremy Turley and Dr. Debra Corum will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Rest assured, your doctor will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. 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.
Similar to a chiropractic new patient, Dr. Debra Corum will provide the patient with a detailed consultation, allowing you to discuss all of your health history questions and concerns. An
extensive health history discussion will take place with your doctor, to try to get to the root of your problem or concern. A brief examination will take place to allow Dr. Debra the
opportunity to see how your body has reacted to your health issues. Dr. Debra will then put all the pieces of the puzzle together to derive the best treatment plan for you possible. During
the consultation, you will be introduced to the acupuncture techniques used in the office, to put your mind at ease for your upcoming acupuncture session. The acupuncture session itself will
last 30 minutes. Most patients compare the sessions to a massage - allowing for complete relaxation. Even if you have a fear of needles, please do not hesitate to explore this amazing healing
