Patient Forms

Upon entering our office, our receptionist will  welcome you as a member of our family.  We will request that you complete our  patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.


Consultation

Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Robert Gucciardo to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Robert Gucciardo to learn more about you, your condition, and  expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.


Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Robert Gucciardo will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your nerve system and flexibility. Most importantly the Doctor will perform a thorough nerve study using thermocouple technology designed in conjunction with NASA space program. Any previous test results and medical records will also be reviewed. Your first visit requires approximately 60-90 minutes. Please allow ample time and do not rush the Doctor. We are looking to uncover the cause of your health concerns. The Doctor will review your exam findings and study your new x-rays.  Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests might be performed as well.  However, nothing  will be done in our office  without your consent.

 


 

X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we will take state of the art digital laser aligned X-rays. X-rays help us identify the upper cervical misalignment and to develop the appropriate correction to make and the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of  any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments themselves. The Doctor will review your exam findings and study your new x-rays.

 


 

Report of Findings

Once the information is collected  and examinations are performed, Dr. Robert Gucciardo will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

  1. How can you help me?
  2. How often do I need to come in?
  3. What  will  my treatment  cost?

After reviewing your health history,  goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Robert Gucciardo will discuss recommendations and notify you if  your condition  requires care with other providers.   Dr. Robert Gucciardo  will  provide the best  treatment and  wellness program for your needs.


Treatment

 At the conclusion of this initial  appointment, you can choose to  experience your first treatment. This will include an upper cervical spinal adjustment.  Treatment is interactive, so  you can express concerns about the treatment  at anytime.


Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, the doctor may suggest a  wellness program  to incorporate outside of treatment.  If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches.  If you desire,  our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle.  Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a  customized wellness plan.  The purpose  of our wellness program is for  you  to achieve good spinal alignment, have a  healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
