We’re are so excited you are interested in visiting the clinic and we know that, as with any new experience, there is a level of uncertainty on what you can expect. We at Dearing Chiropractic Neurology make it our priority to offer quality care centered around you! We invite your questions and are glad to partner with you to help you achieve your health and wellness goals. The first step is to reach out to our team so we can get you scheduled. We offer flexible hours with extended hours on Thursday to accommodate work schedules. When you call and schedule your first appointment, a member of our staff will take down some general information. Once we have this information, we will send you a link to access our online portal. This secure portal will allow you add your demographic information and health history, as well as allow you to sign our HIPAA and "Consent to Treatment" forms. Once you have completed these forms you are ready for your first visit.
On your first visit, you can expect to begin your appointment by spending 15-30 minutes with the doctor for an examination. It is important to have a solid understanding of your health and medical history in order to achieve the best results. We take great pride in getting to know you and the details that brought you to us. Once we have established a foundation of your past and current history, we will transition into a time of recommendation and then treatment.
Depending on the specifics of your case, we may recommend some intel testing to be done here in our office. These tests allow us to track, assess, and develop a better understanding of your current state. Not all patients require these tests. However, if necessary, we will use these multiple times throughout your treatment as a tangible assessment of your improvement.
Upon completing the recommendation portion of the appointment, you will receive your first treatment. If you have any questions about treatment, we will also answer them at this time and ensure that you know exactly what issues your specific treatment will address and what the treatment is. After we have answered your questions, we will begin the treatment.
One of the most important parts of your first visit is the follow up. Obtaining optimal health is a journey and, while we do expect some immediate results, we typically want to see you again with in the first 10 days of your initial visit. This allows us to monitor your progress and continue to develop an in-depth plan.
"Dr. Dearing looks at your health concern from every angle and devises a treatment plan specific to you. Even if surgery is what other doctors recommend, he starts with a clean slate and really listens to you to understand your goals. I highly recommend him for any health problem you have, as the first doctor you see. He's been wonderful for me and my family."
