“You are…in for a ‘treat’ not just a treatment.  Dr. Robert is one of the most qualified, unique health professionals I have ever had the experience of having care for me.  This huge ‘bear’ of a man is a compassionate, caring and totally intuitive professional.  He has helped turn my 62 year old body, which has arthritis, herniated discs and at times sciatica pains and was performing like a very old ‘Model T’ into a top of the line, finely tuned Mercedes.” – Toby Blender

Brief Paperwork:

Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out.  The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your health situation.

 

Prior.to your visit, we can fax you some or all of the paperwork, if you provide us with your fax number and that specific request.

 

If you have had any diagnostic tests done previously—e.g., x-rays, M.R.I.’s, CT scans, lab tests and so forth—kindly consider bringing those with you.  If that is not possible, please provide us with the specific examination and the place where the examinations were performed.

 

Consultation:

Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with Dr. Stein to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.

 

History & Examination:

The first visit is mostly about data gathering.  In order to arrive at a working diagnosis, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your health concerns.  Next, a number of appropriate tests and exams will be performed to help determine the scope and ramifications of each health concern.

 

X-Ray and Advanced Diagnostic Studies:

Your specific condition may require us to refer you for x-rays and/or other diagnostic tests to either rule out more serious conditions or to assist us in developing the most appropriate treatment plan for you.

 

Same Day Treatment:

Once finished with the history, consultation and examination, patients will usually be provided with some kind of treatment during their first visit.  The treatment may include spinal and/or extremity adjustments, physical therapies, therapeutic exercises and/or soft tissue therapies.

 

Home Instructions:

Prior to leaving, patients may be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be followed at home. These may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.  Nutitional supplements, when appropriate, may be recommended as well.

 

Schedule Your Next Appointment:

You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen again within a few days and are provided with a report of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
