We want to help make this process as easy and wonderful as it can be. If you are coming to the office for the first time, your first visit will last approximately half an hour. We will review your history, perform an evaluation, and if necessary, refer you for x-rays. We will discuss with you how we can help you and explain every process.
Please call (201) 385-7800 to make your new patient appointment.

New Patient Appointment:
Upon entering our office, we will help you to get settled. You will complete any additional paperwork, providing us with your health history and information.
First, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for the doctors to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, the doctor will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your spinal health. Some of the tests we utilize are:
- Weight bearing test
- Computerized postural assessments
- Facilitative pattern palpation
- Range of motion evaluation
- Motion palpation
- Flexion and lateral flexion adverse cord and connective tissue assessment
First, you will, depending on your specific condition, we may refer you for x-rays. X-rays can help us develop the most effective care plan for you and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their x-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignment and degeneration themselves.
We do not automatically x-ray every patient.
Follow Up Appointment
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, you will be scheduled for a follow-up visit, usually within a week or as your scheduale allows. During this follow-up visit, the doctor will give you a detailed report on your spine and answer questions like:
- Can we help you?
- How often do you need to come in?
- What will my care cost?
Receiving Care In Our Office:
At the conclusion of this second visit, you can choose to experience your first spinal adjustment. People in our office are amazed at how gentle and effective adjustments feel. Some adjustments use the same amount of force that you would use to squeeze a tomato. Other adjustments require the use of a specific tool that provides exact vectors to correct nerve blockages. The chiropractic care in our office involves highly specialized training and is custom tailored to each person. We offer care to newborn babies all the way up to our eldest patient.
