New Patient Center
Our expert team is ready to determine how best to help you reach the highest levels of health. The first step is finding out what services would best benefit your specific needs and goals.
Your free consultation is the first part of your visit with us. You’ll discuss your concerns with one of our doctors. Together, we’ll decide whether it’s something we can help you with. If so, we’ll offer you a formal examination. In this thorough process, you’ll meet several types of health care professionals that will evaluate you. We’ll take X-rays, and then you’re done for the day. The duration of this visit is about an hour.
The Plan of Care
After your consultation and evaluation, our entire team will meet and discuss your case. From this meeting, we’ll put together a plan of how we can best help you. It will assist greatly in the process if you bring any prior medical records, including imaging, with you to your first appointment. The more we’re informed about your problems, the better we’re able to determine the best plan of action.
On your next appointment, we’ll spend 30-40 minutes discussing our plan with you. If you agree with our recommendations, your treatment will begin at this visit. Depending on your customized care plan, you may see different types of health care professionals on each visit with us. Your follow-up visits will take about 30-45 minutes.
Duration of Care
Many people think that if you visit us for your health care needs, you’ll have to continue going forever. There is some truth to this. Our bodies are just like cars that need maintenance regularly. We need to keep our bodies in good condition. If we stop our healthy habits, we’ll revert back to the same patterns. Your problems may return and your pain will come back. We’re trying to alter the pattern you’re in, and it’s important to maintain that with regular care. Many of our patients graduate to a maintenance program after their care has ended which often includes some of our fitness and nutrition services.
Educational Talks and Screenings
At Advanced Health and Wellness Center our mission is to try and educate both our patients and the public on health promotion and disease prevention. We want to give people all the information possible to learn about their health and how best to maintain a lifetime of well-being. Internally we host a variety of educational classes about subjects such as home care, stress reduction, nutrition and exercise. We are also a part of a non-profit organization called The Foundation of Wellness Professionals which requires us to perform lectures on some of the topics above as well as hold screenings outside of our office for local businesses, groups and organizations. These lectures and screenings help us expose our mission and purpose to the public and allow our office to meet more people and determine if we’re able to help them.
