Your First Visit at Hoover Wellness Care
A consultation with Dr. Hoover is the first step in determining how we may help you and your unique concerns. Dr. Hoover uses the “Home Run Formula” as a metaphor to communicate with patients. Addressing each of the bases (structure, emotions, toxins, nutrition) ensures that all four aspects of this mind-body model are evaluated and addressed to provide a complete solution to your health and emotional needs.
Dr. Hoover will answer questions and address any concerns you may have. We understand that any new experience, especially when it comes to your health, can be unnerving and we will make every effort to make your first visit very comfortable.
We recommend for your first appointment, you arrive 20 minutes early to complete the required paperwork or you may choose to decrease the time spent in our office on your initial visit by printing and completing our forms ahead of time (please refer to the links at the bottom of this section)!
First Visit —What Can You Expect?
Dr. Hoover will tailor your first office visit depending upon whether or not you are interested in traditional chiropractic care or NET. For all new patients, an in-depth analysis of your current problem(s) will be performed.
Chiropractic Patients will be asked:
- Health history
- Life-style habits
- Current problems
For traditional Chiropractic Patients, Dr. Hoover will also perform an orthopedic and neurological exam. When necessary, x-rays and other diagnostic tests will be requested.
NET Patients will be asked:
- History of similar events
- Previous care or interventions
For patients interested in NET, Dr. Hoover will apply the Home Run Formula to assess your concerns and then determine the best way to meet your goals and concerns.
Health History (Chiropractic Only)
A complete health history is the first step for any new chiropractic patient. We will ask about old injuries, chronic problems, and your current symptoms. Dr. Hoover may also inquire about your family history, dietary habits, job or work habits, and previous treatments for the current condition.
After reviewing your health/emotional history, Dr. Hoover will discuss his findings with you and determine how your condition could best be treated. If he feels you will benefit from his care, then (and only then) will he recommend a treatment plan – or if conditions allow, discuss a choice of treatment options.
Treatments will be tailored to specifically address any health problems or personal concerns. For Chiropractic patients, other therapeutic methods, massage techniques, or home care remedies may also be recommended.
