Your First Visit: Welcome to Your Hoover Chiropractor
Welcome to our new patient center at Hoover Health and Wellness Center, Inc.!
We're proud to be the area's trusted chiropractor, and we look forward to meeting you at your first appointment. We understand that visiting a new doctor for the first time can be a bit of a nerve-racking and stressful experience, which is why we've put together this new patient portal that's packed with useful and time-saving resources that will help you best prepare for your first visit to our office.
Save Time With Online Forms
We know the last thing you probably want to do when you come into our office is to spend the first half hour filling out paperwork in our waiting room. That's not a good use of your time. We value your time, which is why we've made all our new patient forms available for viewing and downloading right here on our website. This gives you the opportunity to view, print, and fill out all your new patient paperwork before you ever step foot inside our office.
On the day of your appointment, simply bring your completed paperwork to our office staff and we'll make sure you see our chiropractic team as soon as possible! If you have any questions about your paperwork as you're filling it out, don't hesitate to give our office a call; we'd be happy to help.
Prepare for Your First Appointment
Once we've processed your paperwork, we'll begin your consultation with our very own Dr. G. Forrest Edwards. This is a great opportunity for us to get to know you and vice versa. During this time, we'll discuss your health-concerns as well as your medical history and potential treatment options. The purpose of this initial consultation is for us to develop a customized plan for chiropractic care that will best suit your goals and lifestyle.
Next, it's onto your chiropractic examination, which will involve:
- testing of your reflexes and flexibility
- neurological, orthopedic, and postural screenings
- physical tests
- X-rays, if needed
Before we perform any tests or procedures, we'll be sure that you fully understand what to expect and we will not perform anything without your explicit consent.
Once we have reached our findings, we'll begin putting together your customized treatment plan. This may include anything from spinal adjustments or physical therapy to soft tissue massage or other treatments. We may also make recommendations for at-home lifestyle changes that will aid you in reaching your optimal level of health and wellness. This may include dietary changes, incorporation of exercise, or other tweaks to your everyday life.
