Your First Visit

Patient Forms

Upon entering our office, our receptionist will  welcome you and introduce you to our office.  We will request that you complete our  patient forms, including your contact information, insurance if applicable, and your health history. This paperwork provides us with a good understanding of who you are so we can serve you with the best care.


Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Donovan Hutchings or Dr. Stephen Edwards to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Hutchings and Dr. Edwards to learn more about you, your condition, and  expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.

After your consultation, Dr. Hutchings or Dr. Edwards will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing  will be done in our office  without your consent.

X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop  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.

Report of Findings

Once the information is collected  and examinations are performed, Dr. Hutchings or Dr. Edwards will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

  1. How can you help me?
  2. How often do I need to come in?
  3. What  will  my treatment  cost?

After reviewing your health history,  goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr.  Hutchings or Dr. Edwards will discuss recommendations and notify you if  your condition  requires care with other providers.   Dr. Hutchings and Dr. Edwards will  provide the best  treatment and  wellness program for your needs.


 At the conclusion of this initial  appointment, you can choose to  have your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, ultrasound, light massage, and other treatments.  Your treatment is interactive, so  you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment  anytime.

New Patient Care Plan

Your Care Plan

Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a  care plan  to incorporate outside of treatment.  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,  we will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle.  Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires specific and specialized care.  The purpose  of our care plans are for   you  to achieve good spinal alignment, have a  healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
