First Visit

Brief Paperwork

When you come into the office on your initial consultation, you will be given some paperwork before your exam which will help give the doctor an idea of your health-related problems and concerns.

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 specialised tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.

X-Ray Studies

Your specific condition may require us to take X-Rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. We do not perform X-Rays in the office, but will refer you to a facility which can provide this service.

Treatment

Treatment will not be given during the initial consultation. The doctor requires a full picture of your case before beginning a treatment plan, or administering any treatment.

Schedule Your Next Appointment

After your consultation, you will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Ideally, 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.
