NEW PATIENTS

First Visit

Our vision is a community where everyone integrates holistic practitioners into their health care team. Dr. Goodman has put together a team of practitioners who will ensure that your body is capable and functioning at its peak. We do not subscribe to weekly treatments, our approach is individual and thorough. Our team will empower you to optimal health through joint adjustments, nutritional advice, acupuncture, massage, exercise suggestions, and muscle work. And rest assured, if we don’t have what you need - we know someone who does. Our network of trusted medical professionals in dozens of specialities is extensive and we work swiftly to obtain an x-ray or MRI if needed to formulate a proper diagnosis. If you have any questions or need more information please reach out via text or phone to 303-744-7100. 

 

What To Expect During Your First Visit

If your first visit involves seeing one of our chiropractors or our acupuncturist, you will receive a detailed health history and exam. The history will include family, occupational, and past medical histories, as well as a history of your dietary and exercise habits and previous care received. All too often in today’s medical climate, the patient is rushed through their initial consult with the doctor, and critical elements of their health are missed. We work outside of the high-volume medical model and will spend the time necessary to completely understand your complex medical situation. Next, a physical examination will be performed including movement screens, orthopedic and neurological testing. In addition, a careful spinal and muscular examination and analysis will be performed to detect any abnormalities which may be affecting or causing your condition. All of these elements are important components of your total health profile, and vital in evaluating your health status. If seeing a chiropractor, once we have identified the cause of your health problem you will be given a diagnosis which will be explained and our doctors may follow up with an email or phone call to ensure that you have all of the information you need to understand your current condition. 

 

If your initial appointment is for massage, the therapist will take a brief history of your current symptoms and condition. They will then provide a therapeutic massage, cupping or exercise recommendations. In some cases our therapists may provide recommendations for additional evaluation within our office. It is important to understand that massage therapists are extremely skilled and well trained - but they are not licensed to diagnose any health conditions. If there is ever a doubt that your condition is more serious, we recommend a full exam with one of our chiropractors. 

 

How to Prepare

Please arrive on time with your online forms completed. In addition, please dress appropriately for a thorough examination. You may want to bring or wear shorts for a lower extremity exam or a tank top/sports bra for a shoulder exam. Bring any shoes or other equipment you would like our providers to evaluate. Please also bring imaging reports or photos as well as any activity video for our review. We look forward to a relaxed and enjoyable first visit.
