New Patient Center
We are so glad you have chosen Drs. Hamilton & Roddy for your healthcare needs! As a new patient, please explore this section to learn what you can expect during your first visit. Please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment. In general, you should plan to be in our office for an hour for your initial appointment. If you need to change your appointment, please call us at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled time.
During your first visit, we will request that you complete our new patient paperwork, which provides us with your health history and information about your condition. To save time, you may download this paperwork, complete it, and bring it with you to your first appointment. Click here to download the required forms.
When a patient comes in for their first visit of chiropractic care, Dr. Roddy will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well.
Depending on your specific condition, X-rays may be deemed necessary to 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. Once all information is collected and exams are performed, Dr. Roddy will give you a detailed report of all findings and a recommended treatment plan, including frequency of visits.
If you elect to proceed with neurofeedback therapy, you will be scheduled for a QEEG brain mapping session. You should expect this process to take about an hour. The brain map is the guide Dr. Hamilton and her technicians will use to ensure the affected brainwaves are being trained properly. Prior to starting the training you will meet with Dr. Hamilton to review your brain map and discuss the recommended number of sessions and treatment packages available.
Dr. Roddy will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. This program will be tailored to the treatment you are receiving. 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. Our wellness team will work with you 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.
