The purpose of the initial visit is to determine the cause of your problem.
On the initial visit you will fill out paperwork describing your problem. Dr. DeVreugd will then review your complaint areas with you and ask additional questions regarding your health.
After the consultation, Dr. DeVreugd will perform a thorough examination, including range of motion tests, orthopedic tests, neurological tests and a spinal examination. If necessary, X-rays of the complaint area may be taken.
At the completion of the consultation and examination, Dr. DeVreugd will instruct you to return to our office to discuss your examination and X-ray results with you. He spends extra time every evening reviewing all new patient cases.
