First Visit

New Patient Paperwork

Patients are able to visit our website to download the paperwork. New Patient can go to the Home page to locate the new patient forms. Patients will need to print, complete and bring the forms to the new patient appointment.

If any patient has been in an automobile accident, patient would need to complete both sets of paperwork.

Patients may also arrive 20 minutes early to their scheduled appointment. Upon entering the office, patient will complete paperwork but should allow 20-30 minutes depending on patients health history. The paperwork provides Dr. Hastings with general health history information, present concerns and conditions, acknowledgement of HIPAA and patient will provide individual consent to file with insurance and consent for treatment. Please bring a copy of your photo ID & insurance card.

Consultation

Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.

History and Examination

In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which structural areas and/or soft tissue areas are affected and to what extent.

X-ray Studies

Your specific condition may require us to complete x-ray examination to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.

Same Day Treatment

Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during the same initial visit. Dr. Hastings does reserve the right to postpone any treatment on the first visit based on a patient's health history and present conditon. Additional time may be needed to review findings before a treatment is performed. Please allocate 60-75 minutes for the initial visit. If a treatment were to be received, it may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.

Home Instructions

Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.

Schedule Your Next Appointment

You will be given a convenient appointment time for the second follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
