What to Expect
We know your first time at any doctors' office can be a stressful experience - and since we're in the business of reducing stress, we've worked hard to ensure that your first visit will be as stress free as possible.When you first come in
you'll be greeted by our amazing front desk staff. They'll show you how to sign in and will give you our new patient paperwork. Since we know paperwork can be stressful, ours is straightforward, and can be filled out ahead of time using the button above if you want to finish it at home. When you arrive we'll ask for a Drivers' License and proof of your health insurance (if you have insurance). As soon as your paperwork is filled out your doctor will review it briefly before sitting down and starting your initial consultation. This initial visit usually takes no more than 45 minutes.
After your first visit
your doctor will want to sit down with what they learned from meeting with you - they will go over the results of any tests they did and will put together an individualized care plan to help you get better. Our office doesn't believe in cookie-cutter care plans - unlike many offices which decide to treat areas of your body that aren't hurting, or try to make your healing process match everyone else. We want everyone to get exactly the care they need, and Desert West Chiropractic is dedicated to treating each patient individually.
Your second appointment
is called a "Report of Findings" - an appointment where we go over how we think we can help you and your care plan. This appointment is usually 30-45 minutes, and will also cover any financial solutions we have to ensure you get better rather than focusing on cost. We have multiple payment plan options - we will work with you if you're willing to work with us!
Once you've had your first 2 visits,
your remaining care is much easier - visits take about 15 minutes and can be scheduled throughout the day. Our front desk will work with you and make sure your visits don't interfere with your life! We like to make the terrible pun that we are, by definition, flexible - so don't worry about fitting us into your life - we'll make it as seamless as possible.
If you have any questions about becoming a patient with our office, don't hesitate to contact us - we will happily answer any questions you may have.
