Before Your First Visit
The first step is to call and schedule your first visits at Haven Chiropractic Care. After we find a convenient time for your first and follow-up appointments, we ask that you fill out the paperwork for your new patient appointment before arriving at the office. This means you don’t have to spend a ton of time filling out written forms AND Dr. Randi will have a chance to get familiar with you or your child’s history before you arrive. Please be as detailed as possible with your responses so we can accurately assess your needs and concerns. If you have any questions, please contact us.
Day One: Discovery Day
Your first visit to the office will give us an opportunity to put a face to a name and officially connect with you! We want to make sure you feel as comfortable in our space as we do, so we will start by showing you around our space first. Once you feel at home, you will sit down with Dr. Randi to dig in to your intake documents and look a little to deeper into what brought you into the office. At Haven Chiropractic Care, we want to partner with you on your health goals and ask that you provide as much detail as you can.
After connecting one-on-one, we will utilize our state of the art Insight technologies to gather up additional information. This is what we refer to as your “Scans”; our way of checking in on your nervous system to see how your brain and body is adapting and handling stress. This neuro-spinal assessment is an extremely important part of our initial intake process as we are able to test, rather than just guess, how your nervous system is performing. It’s totally safe and painless! Next, Dr. Randi will perform a structural, biomechanical examination. This helps us connect the data we see on the scans to the changes and adaptations in the body’s structure.
Once your history, neuro-spinal and physical analysis are completed, we will go over your health goals and answer questions you may have. That completes your first day, this usually takes about 45 minutes.
One final note, if you are a parent bringing in a child with sensory challenges or neuro-developmental delays, we recognize that going into busy, public spaces can be very tough for your kiddos at times. We gladly offer special accommodations in these cases and provide a specific sensory-based assessment for your child. Please let us know before your first visit how we can best serve you and your family. Phone consultations, split office appointments, or blocked-off hours for an in-office examination are just a few of the accommodations that we are happy to provide to make you and your child feel more at home.
Day Two: Care Report
By the time we see you for your second visit to the office, Dr. Randi will have performed a full review of your Discovery visit and present you with a report of those findings. She will explain the findings from your first visit. If it is determined we can help you, she will explain in detail the recommended care plan for your personal goals. If any additional evaluation, examination, referral or co-management is needed, we will go over those as well. It is very important that you have a good understanding of what is going on with your body, so we expect questions here! Once the care plan schedule is discussed, we will go over the financial details of your care and your options with our affordable cash family plans.
Starting Care and Beyond
When you decide that starting your care plan is right for you, following your report of findings on Day 2, we get to deliver your first chiropractic adjustment.
Once you begin your personal care plan, things will pick up in pace! At Haven, a typical visit looks something like this: coming into the office and getting checked in on our tablet kiosk (We’ll teach you all about that at the start). Grab yourself a beverage and let the kids grab a piece of fruit or head to the kids zone, our dream is for our space to feel as comfortable as home. When it’s time for your adjustment we’ll call you to a room with Dr. Randi. Plus, remember your scans at the first visit? We will be re-doing those exams on a specific schedule so that we can track and view changes in your system. You will know when these are coming and only add a little time to your regularly scheduled adjustment visit. We want to serve your family the best we can and we know big, long appointments don’t fit into your to deliver awesome care. We but we love when practice members hang around with their coffee and let the kids color or play!
