What should I expect at my first visit with the chiropractor?
After being greeted you will be asked to fill out intake paperwork. Once completed, you will be escorted to your room and Dr. Kouzes will meet with you to evaluate your condition.

When your care is completed you will be escorted back to the front desk where the receptionist will schedule a follow up visit. Treatment frequency is determined by the severity and nature of the condition. Occasionally, Dr. Kouzes will order imaging studies to further investigate a patient's condition.
