WHAT TO EXPECT AT SFC NORTH
Welcome to our wellness family! You are about to embark on a journey with us that leads to a HEALTHIER YOU! We thank you for this honour and look forward to serving you. Please read below to learn about what you can expect on your initial visits with us.
When people are exploring a new doctor for the first time, it is normal to have some concerns and uncertainty. Our goal for every patient is to make their experience with us a wonderful one!
PRIOR TO YOUR FIRST VISIT WITH SFC
Prior to your visit, one of our team members will send you (by email) our New Patient Intake forms, which can be filled out and submitted to us online. We recommend having this done before your appointment because it will allow us to prepare for your first visit and will shorten the amount of time you spend in the clinic. We encourage you to take your time when filling out the New Patient Intake forms, as it gives us a great deal of information about your health and your lifestyle habits. A thorough health history will help your doctor and your examination specialists take better care of you. If you are unable to complete and submit your New Patient Intake form online or if you require assistance with completing your forms, please express that to one of our chiropractic assistants when booking your appointment. You will be asked to come in 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time to fill out these forms in the clinic.
YOUR FIRST VISIT WITH SFC
When you enter the clinic, you will be greeted by one of our friendly chiropractic assistants who will welcome you into our home-like atmosphere. You can rest assured that your health and safety will be our top priority. Our clinic follows the recommended health and safety guidelines to ensure that every patient who comes into our clinic feels safe and comfortable.
Having previously reviewed your New Patient Intake forms, one of our exam specialists will then welcome you into one of our examination rooms. They will begin the examination with a review of your health history, to assess what past traumas and life stresses may be contributing to your current health concerns. Dr. Scott and your examination specialist will perform a complete and comprehensive chiropractic wellness examination, following your consultation, where we will assess your posture, range of motion, equilibrium, and other neurological and orthopedic physical examinations that are relevant. Sometimes, x-rays are necessary to allow us to clearly determine a proper corrective care recommendation. If you have any questions or concerns, Dr. Scott or one of our team members will be happy to answer them.
If you require any statements for insurance purposes, these can be provided. Please request them at the front desk.
YOUR SECOND VISIT WITH SFC
After your examination is completed, we will schedule a time to review your exam results. This is the most important visit you will ever have in the clinic. At this time, Dr. Scott will be able to make a recommendation of how to best help you going forward. This recommendation will be made based on your examination results, your health concerns, and your individual health goals. Dr. Scott will take the time to make sure that you have a complete understanding of not only your condition, but also what needs to be done to correct your condition. If you have any additional questions for Dr. Scott or our team, you are welcome to ask them at any time.
