Your First Visit

What to expect on your first visit.

Brief Paperwork

You’ll be asked to fill out an initial intake form. Please let us know if you’ve been involved in a work related or automobile accident as you will need to provide us with some additional information regarding the nature of your accident. We value your time, so we always make a point of not having you wait long to be seen by Dr. Parrish. To save time you can print forms by clicking here.

Consultation
Dr. Parrish will sit down and have an in depth consultation with you in order to get detailed information regarding your problem. This will allow the doctor to determine which exams and x-rays need to be performed. At that time you can discuss with the doctor your health goals and see if chiropractic is likely to help you. There is never a charge for your initial consultation. This is our way of removing a barrier to sitting down with the doctor and discovering if chiropractic is the right choice for you.

Exam
A thorough examination will be performed by Dr. Parrish; and will include appropriate orthopedic and neurological tests, motion and static palpation of your spine to locate misaligned or locked up joints, and an evaluation of spinal ranges of motion to look for excessive or restricted movements. In addition we have available computerized diagnostic testing to determine muscle injury, weakness, and/or imbalance.

X-Ray (if medically needed)
If needed, the appropriate x-rays will be taken to provide the doctor with valuable information regarding the health of your spine and help rule out more serious conditions that may need other types of treatment. X-rays also help in determining the appropriate treatment plan for your condition.

Follow-Up Visit
At Parrish Chiropractic Center, special focus is placed on educating our patients and allowing you to choose the type of care you're seeking. On your follow-up visit with Dr. Parrish, you will review your exam and x-ray findings. Treatment recommendations are given to each patient on an individual basis and different options of care are discussed. After understanding your condition, you can decide if short term, pain relief care is what you desire; or if you'd rather undergo a treatment plan designed to not only help alleviate your pain but to also correct the underlying cause of your condition.

Insurance
Our warm and friendly office staff will take care of all insurance paperwork – from verifying benefits, to filing claims, to following up with your insurance company.
