Patient Forms
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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does Insurance Cover All Treatments?

We accept most insurances but there are specific insurances that may only cover certain services. We recommend patients check with their insurance on what is covered on their plan. Please bring your insurance information to our office so we can verify your benefits.

Is the therapy painful?

The treatments offered by our clinic alleviate pain and are found by most patients to feel great. Certain treatments may cause minor soreness especially if you have experienced a recent injury, but we do have very gentle treatment methods available to make any potential treatment soreness minimal or none at all.

How long is each appointment?

How long a visit takes depends on each person’s unique situation. The initial exam and successive exams take more time then visits that are purely treatment in general. We value your time, but also make sure that our quality of care for you is our number one priority.

Will I be able to drive myself home?

The vast majority of patients are completely fine to drive after treatment but there are unique cases in which the patient needs a driver, such as severe injury, and this can be discussed with the doctor.

Next, you will have a consultation with John Stoetzel to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for John Stoetzel to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.

After your consultation, John Stoetzel will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.

X-Ray Studies
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.

Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, John Stoetzel will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

  • How can you help me?
  • How often do I need to come in?
  • What will my treatment cost?

After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, John Stoetzel will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. John Stoetzel will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.

At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.

Wellness Program
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.
