What to Expect From Your Visit
Prior to your consultation with the doctor, you will be asked to complete some brief paperwork that will give the doctor a synopsis of your health history. This assists the doctor in more accurately making his diagnosis.
At Delaware Integrative Healthcare, we offer a free consultation whereby the doctor will personally review your case to determine if you are a good candidate for care in our office. If he determines, based on the patient history and clinical experience, that you are a good candidate for care, he will then perform a thorough exam of the spine and extremities. If we determines that you are not a good candidate for care, we will then refer you to an appropriate specialist.
