New Patient Center

Your First Visit

You’ll be warmly welcomed and made to feel at home. Help is on its way!

New patient filling out paperwork

If you have not already filled out the forms we provide online, you will complete them when you arrive at our office.

New patients often remark how “homey” our practice is. That’s good, because our goal is to offer state-of-the-art chiropractic care in a comfortable surrounding. So, make yourself at home!

Make Yourself at Home

You’ll find plenty of convenient parking and well-lit parking. You’ll be greeted by name when you enter our practice and given a short tour to get you acquainted with our facilities.

If you’ve already completed your admitting paperwork, great! If not, after doing so we’ll likely show you a short video to acquaint you with our practice.

We Explain Everything First

Once all forms are completed you will be escorted by a chiropractic assistant to the examination room. You will meet with Dr. Ancone who will discuss the specifics of your case. After the discussion, he will make a determination if chiropractic care is for you. If so, he will proceed with a thorough examination to include:

  • Orthopedic – This examination tests your ability to turn, bend and move key joints of your skeletal system through their expected range of motion.
  • Neurological – We’ll test your deep tendon reflexes, muscle strength and other aspects pointing to the health of your central nervous system.
  • Chiropractic – These tests can include postural evaluation, bilateral weight scales, static and dynamic palpation and other procedures to reveal neurological problems.

Practice Members appreciate that we explain everything in advance!

Your Second Visit

Report of findings

On your report visit we explain what we found and how we may be able to help you.

On your report visit we explain what we found and how we may be able to help you.

After we study your health history and correlate our examination findings, we’ll make recommendations designed to help you get and keep your health. We call this the Report of Findings.

This is usually attended to on your second visit, which may be later the same day or the following day. This two-visit approach accomplishes several things:

Reduces the length of your first visit
Gives us time to correlate our findings
Avoids overloading you with too much information

In certain circumstances we make exceptions. It just depends on your unique situation.

Regular Visits

Avoid relapse with regular visits.

After the investment of time needed on the first and second visits, many patients become concerned that every visit will be of equal length.

In a word: no. A typical visit may require just a few, highly-focused, minutes.

But don’t think the brevity of a regular visit lessens its value! With the groundwork laid, we can quickly size up what your spine and nervous system, adjust you and get you on your way.

Like a regular workout at the gym, each visit builds on the ones before. Miss a visit and we can lose the momentum necessary to make the needed changes.

We recognize your time is valuable. We do everything possible to run on time and minimize the impact on your busy life. Call Onondaga Hill Chiropractic today to make an appointment!
