We at Back and Body Medical New York are dedicated to making your visits with us as comfortable, efficient and as pleasant as possible. It is vital to us that you are happy not only with your care and treatment, but also with how we interact with you and work with you in helping you get better. So here’s a two part post which delves into some of the things you can expect to go through, particularly on your first visit with us.
Upon entry, you will be greeted by one of our friendly staff members who will give you intake history forms to fill out. It is very important to get this information because your past medical history can have a lot of bearing on the problem occurring now and what treatment we will use for you.
You will then be escorted into a room where will take an initial history. Before we perform our examination, we will have you change into disposable shorts or a gown. The doctor will leave the office and go to another room where he will discuss your history with the team of doctors at Back and Body. This way, it is a very comprehensible approach to the patient and we are covering as many bases as possible from the unique perspectives of each doctor.
The doctor will come back into the room and perform a musculoskeletal examine. This consists of an examine for any joint or muscle pain, and a neuromuscular examine if you have any radiating components. After the examination, all of the doctors will group back together to discuss what treatment we think will be best for the patient.
There are many different treatments we offer here at Back and Body Medical New York such as physical therapy, acupuncture, and chiropractic. Stay tuned to learn more about the specific treatment plans we give, and more of what to expect upon a first visit in our next article.
