Welcome To Our Office!
Your First Visit With Us...
As a new patient phoning or entering our office, you will be greeted by our friendly, knowledgable staff who will welcome you and answer any questions you may have. Once your appointment has been made, our staff will request that you complete New Patient Paperwork forms, located on this website. This paperwork provides us with your health history, as well as information on your condition. In addition, these forms give us permission to treat you, and also explain your privacy rights, under the law. New Patient Paperwork is standard protocol in any medical office.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Laura Korman to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Laura Korman to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations in order to better determine how chiropractic care can meet your needs and goals. You are welcome, and encouraged, to invite your spouse, partner or significant other to join you in this, and any, appointments at our office.
Examination / Evaluation
After your consultation, Dr. Laura Korman will perform a complete and thorough examination, testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed, as well. Nothing will be done in our office, without your consent and participation.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays, as well. X-rays help us determine the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves. Unlike many of today’s medical offices, at Korman Relief & Wellness Center, we perform all X-rays in house, at our location on Toledo Blade Blvd, for your convenience. We use “digital” X-rays at our office, which expose you to just a small fraction of the radiation of traditional, film X-rays of the past.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Laura Korman will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Laura Korman will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care from other providers. Dr. Laura Korman is dedicated to provide the best, customized, treatment and/or wellness program for your specific needs.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, various therapies, and/or soft tissue massage. Your treatment is interactive, so you are invited to give feedback, or ask questions, at any time during your appointments. We are here to serve YOU.
Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment at our office. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at-home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle.
