What to expect your first and second visits

On your first visit you will begin by completing the necessary new patient paperwork. After completion you will be taken into the consultation room. Here you will have the opportunity to talk with Dr. Phillips about your current symptoms, past symptoms and any other health concerns you may have. Dr. Phillips will then perform examinations relevant to your complaints. After the exams are finished, Dr. Phillips will take you into a treatment room for a preliminary treatment. This treatment is designed to reduce your symptoms and may treat the underlying cause. On your second visit you will again be taken into the consultation room to discuss your diagnosis, treatment plan and what you can expect from treatment.
