Your First Visit
The most important question for Dr. Alexander to answer is whether or not you are a candidate for care here. We are interested in trying to completely understand your health condition. We will ask you questions related to how your condition started, what makes your symptoms better or worse, the severity of your symptoms, how long you have had them and other related aspects of your health.
A physical examination will follow your consultation. This may or may not lead to services such as x-rays. After ruling out conditions that might require referral, Dr. Alexander will perform an evaluation of your neuromusculoskeletal system (a long word for nerves, muscles, and bones).
Report of Findings
Upon completion of the physical examination, an assessment of your condition will be given to you in what is known as a report of findings. Dr. Alexander and you will discuss your diagnosis and your treatment plan, including the duration and number of visits. At this point, you will usually begin the recommended treatment.
