After the investment of time needed on the first and second visits, many patients become concerned that every visit will be of equal length.
Typically, subsequent visits are very short. This is done to allow you to be able to come in without disturbing your daily schedule. There is rarely a wait to be seen. You will be asked if there has been a change in your condition. Is it improving? In what ways? You will be treated, or if necessary, I will do a short exam. When you are done, you will make arrangements for your next appointment. On most occasions, you will be in the office less than 20 minutes.
Once a month you will have an appointment that will be slightly longer. This is your re-exam appointment. At this time, I will be reviewing how your visits have been going and how your health has been improving, and do an exam as well. After this re-exam you will be adjusted. The findings of this re-exam will be gone over at your next appointment.
Like a regular workout at the gym, each visit builds on the ones before. Miss a visit and you can lose the momentum necessary to make the needed changes.
I recognize your time is valuable. So I do everything possible to run on time and minimize the impact on your busy life.
