We want to help make this process as easy and wonderful as it can be. If you are coming to the office for the first time, your first visit will take around thirty minutes. We will review your history, perform an evaluation and if necessary, refer you for x-rays. We will discuss with you how we can help.
How to Begin
Please call 603-880-4150 to make your new patient appointment. If you are reading this outside of our regular business hours, we set aside a limited number of spots that can be scheduled online. If you need a different time, please call. We will call you, to confirm your appointment.
If you have any recent Xrays, MRIs or CT Scans, related to your spine, please bring those to your first appointment. We ask that you download the forms in the next section and fill them out to the best of your knowledge. The more complete your history and current condition forms, the more time will be saved during your consultation and the better we will be able to know if we can help you. We ask that you arrive 15 minutes before your appointment if you have completed the form; and 30 minutes before the appointment, if you intend to complete the forms in the office. This allows us to continue to make sure all patients are seen timely. We pride ourselves in always running on time and ask your consideration with this appointment to help us continue that.
Please wear comfortable clothing you can move around in to your first appointment.
When you arrive at the office, please hand your completed forms to the front desk. We may have additional forms for you to complete as well. You can download the forms below.
To start, you will have a consultation with Dr. Johanna to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. During the consultation, we will listen to you and your concerns and set goals specific to your needs.
After the consultation, Dr. Johanna will perform a focused examination. She will explain the various tests and will welcome your questions during the exam process.
Motion X-Ray Study
Dr. Johanna will order a motion x-ray study—the most efficient way to view the structure and movement of your spine. A motion x-ray study will help her pin point the specific areas of your spine which may not be moving and determine if there are areas of early degeneration. This process is similar to a dentist taking an x-ray to view cavities that may be forming or are hidden from view.
Follow Up Appointment
At the end of your first visit, we will schedule a follow-up appointment. The follow up is often scheduled for the next day. We will review your motion study, answer any of your questions and start your specific care.
Receiving Care In Our Office
Before we adjust you for the first time, we will explain the various chiropractic-specific tools and the table. We want to ease the fear of the unknown so that you can relax. Visits typically last 5-10 mins and we schedule to respect your time, so you will avoid having to wait in our reception area.
Over the past few years in practice, we’ve repeatedly received feedback detailing how valuable our affordable care is to the families who use our service. We have many payment options available. In addition to accepting many forms of insurance, health savings plans, flexible spending accounts, we also accept Visa/MasterCard/Discover/AMEX.
We understand that health care costs can be confusing. We work hard to clearly communicate upfront about any fees to avoid unpleasant billing surprises.
