Upon Arrival

Upon arrival at the Center for the Functional Restoration of the Spine, please check in at the front desk, where the completion of all appropriate forms will be verified, and where you will be asked for personal and insurance information. You will also be asked to review and sign a Healthcare Proxy form.

Once registration is complete, you will be escorted to the first available exam room where you will change into a dressing gown. Our staff will review medical history and perform a physical examination. A physician will then meet with you for your examination and consultation.

After your examination and consultation, you will receive an explanation of your condition and may be provided with instructions on necessary follow-up diagnostics or appointments. Your physician will discuss the range of treatment options for your diagnosis.

It will take approximately two hours to complete your initial visit and may be longer depending on the complexity of the care required.
