Your Initial Exam

Once a new patient is scheduled for their initial visit, an initial evaluation is conducted. This includes a review of your health history followed by a thorough assessment to include vital signs, systems review, orthopedic, neurologic, and chiropractic tests to diagnose your condition.

If necessary, diagnostic imaging or lab tests can be ordered as well. Positive or relevant findings will be discussed during the exam to assist your understanding of the diagnosis, and once a clinical impression is formulated, your treatment options will be discussed. You should print out your new patient paperwork from this site to expedite your visit, but please allow 30-60 minutes for your first visit with Dr. Downs. Depending upon your exam findings and condition, treatment can usually be implemented on your first visit, so results can start immediately!
