The following is a description of the typical new patient experience with Dr. Magnuson:
New patients should call our office and we can email/mail/fax you a packet of the appropriate forms for your case or these forms can be completed at your first appointment. This paperwork provides us with your comprehensive health history and information about your health concerns, so it is important to answer all questions that apply to you.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Magnuson, either in-person or by phone for non-residents, to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Magnuson to learn more about you, assess your health concerns, and expectations to determine how wellness care can meet your healthcare goals.
After your examination, if you are choosing chiropractic care, Dr. Magnuson will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes, flexibility, and range of motion. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. An x-ray may be required if assessed as clinically necessary. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
If choosing chiropractic care you will be adjusted usually on the first or second visit. For nutritional, hormonal, or lifestyle consultations those will be addressed in the report of findings.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, usually on your second visit/phone consult, Dr. Magnuson will give you a detailed report of all findings, answer any questions you may have concerning your care, clarify the details of your wellness program, and explain the benefits to you.
Dr. Magnuson will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
