New Patient Information
Paperwork: New patient forms 2012
- Forms can all be done online, call (314) 439-5548 to get started! Or….
- You can download a paper version of our paperwork to fill out at home prior to your visit.
- All initails and signatures must be done by hand, cannot be typed in.
- Additional paperwork may be required at your first visit and we will guide you through this.
- Please bring with you or have your primary care physician fax to us any radiographic reports, MRI/CT reports, or blood work to help us help you and to prevent any need to order tests unnecessarily.
- If at all possible we would like for you to bring in prior radiographs (x-rays) so we can assess these in person.
- Please bring your most up-to-date suppliment and medication list.
- Don’t forget to bring in your insurance card!
- It is a good idea to know your chiropractic benefits before coming in, but as a service to you we will also verify this information for you.
- We are providers for a lot of insurance companies. We will file your claims for you and follow up on unpaid claims to the best of our ability.
- We may need your help in this area. Your insurance company may ask you to fill out paperwork, send prior records or have your primary care physician send in paperwork before they will pay for our claims.
- We are no longer Cigna providers.
What to expect with your first visit
- Your first visit will be the longest, maybe 45 minutes. It is important for Dr. Gina to get familiar with your case.
- Consultation: We will guide a discussion and listen, yes, listen – as you detail how your problem started, things that make it worse, or anything else you believe is relevant.
- Examination including a chiropractic analysis, orthopedic and neurologic testing – and if necessary order specialized tests including, but not limited to radiographs, MRI, or CT scans.
- We may or may not treat you in the first visit. This is decided on a case by case basis. Our decision is based on what is best for your situation and recovery.
How long will it take to feel better?
- Every case is different and everybody heals at their own rate. It is difficult for us to tell you exactly how long it will take to get you better. Part of that equation is you and how much you participate in your own care.
- Our practice growth is largely due to referrals and that says a lot. We will provide care that is effective, as long as it’s prudent, and only as it’s needed!
