Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
What to Expect on the First Visit
1) Your first visit includes a consultation with Dr. Kavulich, and a comprehensive orthopedic and neurological examination. Dr. Kavulich will evaluate whether our office can accommodate your needs or if it is important to refer you to another specialist.
2) If your insurance covers the visit, we accept your co-payment. The visit is $85 if insurance does not apply.
3) Your appointment fee of $85 (or co-payment) and includes the second visit review of your radiology orthopedic and neurological findings. In addition, Dr. Kavulich will determine if you could benefit from our chiropractic, massage or nutrition services. You may begin treatment that day.
4) We participate with some insurances and we have affordable payment plans. Do not worry if we are not in your insurance plan. Even if we do not participate with your insurance, your co-pay is often comparable to our chiropractic fee. In our office it is common to pay the same with a participating doctor.
Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program 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, our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
