Your first visit to our office is our first opportunity to exceed all of your expectations. You will be greeted by our fantastic front desk receptionist. She will assist you with your paper work and answer all questions you may have before your consultation begins.
Your next step is to meet with Dr. Flikke in a private one on one consultation. This private time gives each of us the opportunity to get to know one another and what your unique health challenges have been and what you want your health future to look like. We will discuss why you are here as well as any other additional details you wish to discuss prior to the examination related to your case.
We will take you through the examination process consisting of orthopedic examination and tests, muscle strength testing, range of motion testing and many other chiropractic tests. We will make sure that you understand everything. Do not hesitate to ask questions, they are expected. One of the major premises of this office is that you are responsible for your own health. After all how can a person make the best decisions for them selves if they do not have all the facts?
After having completed the consultation and examination, Dr. Flikke will help you participate in your own health by answering four main questions:
CAN WE HELP?
Our staff is highly trained to determine whether or not your condition is one that can be helped in this office. If we can we will tell you that. If not, we will tell you that too. If necessary, we work openly with other healthcare professionals to assure you receive the appropriate care.
WHAT IS CAUSING MY PROBLEM?
We will summarize your exam findings in words you understand, and what we believe to be causing your health condition.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
The duration of care depends upon how long you have been dealing with chronic pain, the extent of your acute injury, past injuries (if any), and your health goals. It is truly different for each individual. We will give you estimates based upon other practice members with similar health conditions.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
Each of us has the freedom to place a different value on our health. Ultimately, good health is about personal responsibility. While an insurance company or other third party may be helpful, be careful. Don’t allow a profit-motivated company to make decisions about what you do with your health. We will be straight forward with you on the cost of care. Practice members in our clinic are happy to find out that our rates are reasonable and very affordable, whether you have insurance coverage or not (in fact, most of our patients don’t have insurance). We do work with all insurance companies, and will verify what your coverage is for our office.
Your first treatment, should you decide to start care, will occur immediately after the results of your examination have been given.
We look forward to helping you and your family experience a lifetime full of optimal health and well-being!
