New patient filling out paperwork

When you first arrive there will be some brief paperwork to complete.

Your First Visit

Please arrive about 20 minutes before your scheduled appointment time to complete the initial paperwork. Please bring your insurance card(s) and ID with you to your first visit.

Next, you will have a consultation with the doctor. During this question and answer time, we will learn about:

  • Your health history
  • Your current symptoms
  • Your health goals

If Dr. Ashman feels that your case could benefit from chiropractic care, he will perform a thorough examination to begin to get to the root cause of your problem, and may suggest X-rays or discuss other test options with you.

Depending on your health situation, your chiropractic care may begin on this visit. For more complicated cases, your first adjustment may be done on a follow-up visit. This gives Dr. Ashman time to coordinate all of the findings and arrive at a “game plan” for your case. Please expect your first visit to last around 30-45 minutes.

Your Second Visit

This visit might be scheduled later the same day or on a different day. During this time Dr. Ashman will discuss his findings with you and make his recommendations so that you can get better as quickly as possible. He will explain what he found and how he can help you with chiropractic care or with our other services.

With modern, state of the art equipment and a variety of adjusting tables for your comfort, we’ll tailor your care precisely to your needs.

Regular Visits

Our visits are not rushed, and we take any necessary time with you in order to evaluate your progress and your present status. We evaluate you on each visit prior to your adjustment.

We recommend wearing loose-fitting clothing so that Dr. Ashman can perform his typical evaluation, including palpation and instrumentation, which requires that he have access to the skin overlying your spine. This can also help contribute to more gentle and comfortable adjustment. Men may be asked to remove their shirts. We provide gowns for any female patients wearing prohibitive clothing.

You’ve Met Your Goals, Now What?

We’ll provide the attention to detail so you get the thorough care you need right from the start. Together, we’ll work to achieve the goals set for your health and for a better lifestyle.

Once you’ve reached your goals, we will honor your decision to stop receiving chiropractic care if that’s what you choose. We do not keep you coming back and back and back again against your wishes.

If Dr. Ashman feels your case could benefit from continued care once your health goals have been met, he will discuss his recommendations and reasoning with you, as well as recommended visit frequency. Then the decision is yours. Our patients who have chosen to continue with maintenance chiropractic care have found that this preventative approach keeps them well, prevents future problems and decreases future expenses.
