What to Expect on Your First Visit
After being welcomed into the office, you will have a consultation with the doctor and she will go over your main concerns for your office visit, your personal health history, and your ultimate goals for better health. The doctor will then perform a physical and orthopedic examination that will help determine the best course of treatment in order to help you reach your goals for better health.
Children will be examined very much the same depending on the age of the child. We try our best to help make your child's visit as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
We understand that health care can be costly and therefore believe that finding the root cause of your problems and treating it early will ultimately save you time and more costs in the future. It is far less costly to maintain your good health, rather than waiting until serious problems arise!
Some Frequently Asked Questions
How long is the initial visit? Follow-up visits?
Depending on your condition, initial visits usually range from 45 minutes to 1 hour. This includes going over your present complaints, your pertinent health history, spinal examination, and first treatment session.
Follow-up visits are approximately 15-20 minutes. Frequency of visits are determined based on your diagnosis and how well your body responds to treatments.
Can I fill out the initial intake forms beforehand?
Yes! The initial intake form is located on the bottom of this page. Please fill them out and bring them with you on your first visit. Each new patient must have a signed intake form, informed consent and office policy.
Can I bring my children with me to my office visits?
Yes of course! We are a family-based practice with a very kid-friendly atmosphere. Our assistants are usually available to keep an eye on the little ones while they play in the kids corner. We're also more than happy to hold the younger babies while you get adjusted. We would love to meet you and the rest of your family!
Do you accept health insurance?
Our office accepts most PPO plans - However, we are considered out-of-network providers. Chiropractic benefits vary from plan to plan and therefore need to be verified during the initial visit. If your insurance has a high "out-of-network" deductible we have discounted cash plans to help make things more affordable.
What if I don't have health insurance?
Not a problem! Dr. Sepulveda will estimate the amount of visits needed in order to reach your health goals and will present an affordable care plan that is right for you.
