Upon entering our office our office manager will greet you and welcome you as a member of our family. We will request you fill our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. If you have an opportunity, please download these and fill them out prior to your appointment. All our new patient forms are found on the home page.
The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition.
Next you will have a consultation with Dr. Jamie Kirschner or Dr. Daniel Kirschner to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options. Your first visit is designed for the Doctors to learn more about you, your condition and your expectations to determine whether chiropractic care will you meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Daniel or Dr. Jamie will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes, your ability to turn and bend as well as other standard neurologic, orthopedic, postural, and physical examinations. Nothing will be done in our office without your consent.

After discussing with you your history and your goals, examining your spine and reviewing any x-rays or tests, your Doctor will discuss recommendations with you. If you have a condition that requires care with other providers, the doctor will tell you. If we believe that either Dr. Daniel Kirschner or Dr. Jamie Kirschner can help you, we will recommend treatment and a wellness program will begin.
Patients will generally be provided with their first treatment at the conclusion of the appointment. This may include spinal adjustments, physicaltherapies, and/or soft tissue therapies. Treatment is interactive with you so you can express any concerns you have about the style of adjustment you will be most comfortable with.
