Your First Visit to Our Clarksville Practice
Welcome to Harris Chiropractic Clinic
From the moment you arrive you will feel welcome in our new, “state-of-the-art” healing facility. It looks like a home and it feels like a home. It won’t be long until you recognize you are definitely in the right place. Our friendly staff will gladly meet any of your needs and you will feel like part of a family before your visit is done. The unfortunate need for paperwork remains, but it has been minimized as much as possible so as not to be a burden. If you completed the paperwork from downloading online, it will expedite the process significantly. The staff can assist you in accomplishing that task. Should you need help filing for health insurance benefits, that information will be obtained at this time, as well.
Your Consultation & Examination
You will then be taken to an examination room where the consultation and examination will be conducted. At the conclusion of the consultation, you will be advised of what procedures and tests the doctor is recommending. The costs of those procedures will be explained to your satisfaction and your agreement to proceed will be obtained before anything else is done. As we said before, you are the boss. As you are the one ultimately responsible for any expenses incurred in the office, we think it is only fair that you understand what the process is every step of the way to preclude any misunderstanding and confusion. The last thing we want to do is add to the stress load that may have even resulted in your visit.
Please come prepared to describe your condition as precisely as you can from onset, to severity, to the impact it is having on your life day-to-day. Any medications being used should be described to include purpose, dosage, and length of time used. Any severe emotional stresses in the last six to nine months should be mentioned to your doctor during your visit, as well.
Finding the Cause
Please allow 45-60 minutes for you first visit to permit for the thorough, professional, and comprehensive evaluation and examination we have become known for. The first step is to find the cause of your health challenge. That will happen today.
At the conclusion of your visit, our staff will re-schedule you for your second visit which we refer to as the “Report of Findings”. We strongly encourage you to bring your spouse or the person you rely on to assist you in making health decisions for yourself. They can help you better understand what is being said and assist in recalling more of the information presented once you get home. You will be expected to pay for services rendered on your first visit unless prior arrangements have been made.
When our staff tells you “goodbye” at the end of your visit, you will be given information concerning the clinic and doctors to review before your next appointment. Should you have any questions come to mind after leaving the office, do not hesitate to call us immediately. Should the staff be unable to handle your concern, rest assured your doctor will respond as soon as they are available.
