Dr Marilyn Moss, DC
What to Expect on Your First Appointment:
The first time you visit our office, your appointment will be an hour in length. This will include a review of your medical history, pregnancy history (if appropriate), exam and treatment.
After an in depth discussion of your symptoms and history, Dr Moss will examine you structurally to determine patterns of decreased range of motion, joint restrictions, and muscle tightness. All her findings will be explained to you in detail so you have a thorough understanding of what is being addressed with your treatment. For patients new to chiropractic, Dr Moss will be happy to explain the nature of her profession, her personal treatment protocols, and what to expect with treatment.
Dr Moss' personal philosophy is that patients need to feel comfortable and relaxed in order to receive optimal benefit from her care.
All adjusting techniques will be explained clearly to ensure you have a complete understanding of her treatment methods. If you are uncomfortable with any part of the treatment, alternate techniques can be used to address the issue. Most treatment sessions will include soft tissue massage focused on your problem areas. This allows the adjustments to have a more thorough and longer lasting effect.
Follow up sessions are key to gauging your body's response to treatment. Expect to have a first follow up session within 3 to 7 days. Further sessions and treatment frequency are determined based on length of the injury time and your response to the initial treatments.
If there are other modalities or lifestyle factors that may benefit you, Dr Moss will make recommendations to you, with the intention of expediting your recovery time.
If you have xrays, MRI’s or lab reports from other offices, please bring them with you to your initial appointment for review. Films and lab reports can also be requested by Dr Moss’ office if you do not have a copy of your own.
Payment is taken by check, cash or credit card, and a billing statement will be supplied upon request for submission to your insurance company, who will then reimburse you directly.
