Patient Forms

Upon entering our clinic our receptionist will greet you at the 1st floor main reception area and welcome you as a member of our patients.  We will request you fill patient intake forms. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition.

 

 




Consultation

Next you will have a consultation with one of our doctors for your condition and need, and you will be able to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options. Your first visit is designed for the doctors to learn more about you, your condition and your expectations to determine whether our care will you meet your goals. During the consultation, if the doctor makes a judgment that your condition needs another treatment method in another department then you will be referred to an appropriate doctor to have you the best treatment plan for your optimal recovery.   




Examination

After your consultation, the doctor will perform a complete examination testing your reflexes, your ability to turn and bend as well as other standard neurologic, orthopedic, postural, and physical examinations. If you are getting Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine treatment, general physical examination, visual observation including colors of face, tongue and cornea of eyes, pulse examination, and Computerized Meridian Test will be performed.   

 




X-Ray Studies

Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to get a full evaluation of a patient. X-rays help us rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.  Most people are amazed once they their x-rays and can often immediately identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.






Report of Findings

Once all the information and examinations have been performed, the doctor will give you a report of findings to answer the three most popular questions: 

        1. Can you help me?
        2. What do you recommend that I do to get better?
        3. How much is it going to cost?

    After discussing with you about your history and your goals, examining your spine and reviewing any x-rays or tests, the doctor will discuss recommendations with you. If you have a condition that requires care with other providers, the doctor will inform you what will be a proper treatment field for your condition. For the conditions that we can help at Good Day Total Health Clinic, we will recommend appropriate treatment and our wellness program.


Treatment

Patients will generally be provided with their first treatment at the conclusion of the appointment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, soft tissue therapies and/or therapeutic exercises. For Acupucnture & Oriental Medicine treatment, acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping and herbal medicine will be prescribed.  Treatment is interactive with you so you can express any concerns you have about the style of treatment you will be most comfortable with.

 

 



Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, patients will be instructed on a wellness program to be conducted at home. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.  If you desire a wellness lifestyle with an active participation of our wellness program at Good Day facility, we will work with you to create an individual wellness program to complete you optimal health. The foundation of our overall wellness lifestyle is maintaining healthy posture and good spinal alignment, eating a healthy diet, taking proper supplements, keeping your weight under control and stress relief.
