Your First Visit

As you arrive, JoAnn will greet you and make sure you’re ready for your appointment. You will probably have spoken with her on the phone when booking your appointment, and she’ll remind you of a few key things:

  • You’ll fill out our new patient forms.
  • Set aside about one hour for this initial appointment.
  • Feel free to wear whatever clothing you find most comfortable.
  • Bring along reports or test results from other providers, if you have them handy. These things may assist Dr. G in grasping the full scope of your condition.

Dr. Garner will listen to your concerns, assess your condition, and discuss his findings and his diagnosis with you. Throughout your visit, he encourages an open dialogue and is known for educating the patient at every step. Feel free to ask questions. Some he commonly answers are:

  • How long will I need to come in?
  • How much will this cost me?
  • Will chiropractic care really help me?

Dr. Garner will adjust you, if possible, at this first visit. He uses the Activator Method®, which you can read more about on our Techniques page. This method allows for fast relief with minimal discomfort.

Follow-Up Visits

Follow up visits are designed to assess how your chief complaint is resolving, and to deal with any other complaints.

Pattie will meet with you privately to discuss your health history and the condition you’re being treated for. She’ll ensure Dr. G receives the details he needs to continue your care. We’ll attempt to answer the following:

  • Are we moving ahead?
  • If not, what is the next step?

You can expect follow-up visits last around 15-20 minutes.

You may need only a couple of follow-up visits before you are well. If you do need more, rest assured we’ll be working at each visit to move you quickly toward recovery.
