Welcome to our office! When you come here for the first time, we want to make your visit as smooth and effective as possible, and give you a better understanding of what will happen. So, to any of our practitioners, it is very helpful if you could bring: any previous health records; imaging reports (x-rays, MRI’s, CT Scans); lab tests, etc. – to your first appointment. Please also wear or bring comfortable, non-restrictive clothing as this will assist your practitioner in performing an assessment.
When you arrive at the clinic, please check-in with our front office staff.
Payment methods accepted at the clinic are cash, cheque, and debit. Only Dr. Thomson currently accepts credit card payments.
Drs. Orchard, Moeller and Lusk (Chiropractors)
The first visit with your chiropractor involves intake paperwork that needs to be completed when you arrive. There is also a short video to watch that will provide you with some education regarding chiropractic. The initial contact with the chiropractor involves a history taking session, a physical examination, a report of findings, and possibly some treatment. This first appointment is usually longer than any subsequent therapy visit (up to 45 minutes).
Dr. Erica Thomson (Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine)
You will have been instructed to fill in the paperwork that is attached to our website prior to the first visit. Please bring the completed forms with you to your appointment or plan to arrive 25 minutes before your visit to fill them out. Also, please bring any relevant imaging/lab results as well as any medications/supplements you take with you to the visit.
The initial visit is approximately 90 minutes long during which time we will discuss your primary concerns, go over your health history and perform a relevant physical exam. Lab testing may be suggested, depending on the clinical picture. The purpose of your first visit is to collect enough information to determine the root cause of your concerns, and in most cases some initial recommendations will be made.
Follow-up appointments are 60 minutes. The number and frequency of subsequent visits will be determined based on your needs.
