QUESTION:

How long does each visit take?

ANSWER:

It is of utmost importance to us to respect your time and minimize how long each visit takes.  Obviously, your first one will be longer, since there is a bit of paperwork to do, and the doctors always spend the time needed to diagnose your problem and determine treatment.  Sometimes it also takes more time to take on-site x-rays or order out for other diagnostics.  Generally, though, we try to make your first visit one hour at most.  Subsequent ones generally last from 30 to 40 minutes, unless we are conducting evaluation or discussing your test results.
