Your First Visit

New patient filling out paperwork

When you first arrive there will be some brief paperwork to complete.

New patients often remark how friendly and relaxed our office is. That’s good, because our goal is to offer state-of-the-art chiropractic care in a comfortable surrounding..

Make Yourself at Home

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

If you’ve already completed your admitting on-line paperwork, great! If not, after doing so you’ll meet Dr. Ron Latch or the therapist you have chosen for acupuncture or massage therapy.

We Explain Everything First

The purpose of your consultation with the doctor is to discuss your health goals and see if chiropractic is likely to help you. If it looks promising, a thorough examination will help identify the cause of your problem.

If it is determined x-rays are a necessity an off-site, independent, medical x-ray facility and radiologists are used. Using this x-ray facility negates any cost of x-rays to the patient if the patient possesses an Alberta Health Care number. Not all patients will require x-rays,only those whose examination/history determines it necessary. Dr. Latch interprets patient x-rays for free.

Your First Adjustment

Treatment is provided if possible during the first visit. Sometimes the first visit is divided into a second visit if x-rays, information, or a more complex case analysis is needed. If the second visit is necessary for further examination/history there is no charge to the patient unless treatment is started. Expect to spend around one hour for the first visit, the majority of the time will be spent with Dr. Latch.

Patients appreciate that we explain everything in advance!
