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 which are also available to download 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. Douglas Catoggio to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Catoggio to learn more about you, your condition, and  expectations to determine how treatment care can meet your goals.


Examination

After your consultation we will perform an examination testing your muscles, Joints,  and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.


Diagnostic Studies if Necessary

Depending on your specific condition, we may recommend certain diagnostic testing to help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of  any serious spinal, nerve or muscular conditions.


Report of Findings

Once the information is collected  and examinations are performed, we 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 and how long will it take?
  3. What  will  my treatment consist of and will my insurance cover it?

After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your condition we will discuss recommendations and notify you if  your condition can be treated within our facility and/or  requires care with other providers.   Dr. Catoggio  will  provide the best  treatment and recommendations he can without wasting your precious time or his. Most cases can achieve relief in a short period of time. The goal is to get you feeling better as quickly as possible.


Treatment

At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include Active Muscle Release Therapy (ART),  Physical therapy, Spinal Adjustments, or Soft Tissue Massage. Treatment is interactive, so  you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment  anytime. Other on site pain management treatments are also available when needed.


Wellness/Home care Recommendations

Prior to leaving, the doctor will 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. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized recomendation plan.  The purpose of our recommendations is for  you  to achieve less pain, better function, more flexibilty, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
