New Patients

Welcome to Gillis Chiropractic! New patients often remark how “homey” our practice is. That’s good, because our goal is to offer state-of-the-art chiropractic care in a comfortable surrounding. So, make yourself at home!

You’ll find plenty of convenient parking and well-lit parking. You’ll be greeted by name when you enter our practice and given a short tour to get you acquainted with our facilities.

First Visit

Man extending hand for handshakeWhen you first arrive there will be some brief paperwork to complete. If you’ve already completed your admitting paperwork, great! If not, after doing so we’ll likely show you a short video to acquaint you with our practice.

The purpose of your pre-care consultation is to discuss your health goals and see if you’re a good candidate for chiropractic care. If it looks promising, a thorough examination will help us identify the likely cause of your problem.

The purpose of your consultation with the doctor is to discuss your health goals and see if chiropractic is likely to help you. If it looks promising, a thorough examination will help identify the cause of your problem. Patients appreciate that we explain everything in advance!

After we study your health history and correlate our examination findings, we’ll make recommendations designed to help you get and keep your health. We call this the Report of Findings. Together, we will plan the best way to reach your health goals!

Second Visit

On your report visit we explain what we found and how we may be able to help you.

On their second visit, most patients are evaluated using a state of the art nervous system evaluation tool called the Insight Millenium. The Insight scan will allow us to quantify the severity and extent of the neurological component to your main complaint.

This is one of the most important tests that we perform, as it helps us to determine what it will take to return you to optimal health.

Regular Visits

After the investment of time needed on the first and second visits, many patients become concerned that every visit will be of equal length.

In a word: no. A typical visit may require just a few, highly-focused, minutes. We recognize your time is valuable. We do everything possible to run on time and minimize the impact on your busy life.

But don’t think the brevity of a regular visit lessens its value! With the groundwork laid, we can quickly size up what your spine and nervous system, adjust you and get you on your way. Like a regular workout at the gym, each visit builds on the ones before. Miss a visit and we can lose the momentum necessary to make the needed changes.

Give our Saint John chiropractic office a call to schedule an appointment so we can help you and your family.
