On your first visit to our office you will be welcomed as a member of our family and our receptionist will greet you with a warm smile. You will then be asked to fill out our required forms which will help us gain some information about yourself and your condition.
Dr. Shelby Glazer or Dr. Richard Ruffini will then talk with you and ask you some specific questions regarding your condition to determine if chiropractic care may be of benefit to you. If Dr. Glazer or Dr. Ruffini can help you, the doctor will let you know. If they cannot help you, you will be refered to a specialist who can. Nothing will be done in our office without your consent.Examination
After a thorough consultation with the doctors, you will have a complete chiropractic examination. This will include testing your reflexes, your ability to turn and bend as well as other standard orthopedic, neurologic, postural, and physical examinations. The doctor will gain valuable information regarding your condition so that a better understanding of how chiropractic can help you. If necessary, the doctor may take X-rays or refer you for additional testing procedures.
X-ray is sometimes required to get a full evaluation of a patient. The need for X-ray is considered on a case by case basis. Our equipment is state of the art for imaging.
Report of Findings
Once all the information and examinations have been performed, the doctor will give you a report of findings and tell you recommendations for treatment.
Most of our patients begin to see results from the very first adjustment. Our special gentle yet effective alignment of the body is interactive with the patient, gentle enough for kids (they love us), yet able to restore function and movement for the athlete and senior.
Our office participates in many insurance programs. We also accept auto accident liens and workers compensation cases. To find out if your insurance covers chiropractic care, you can call Dr. Shelby Glazer or Dr. Richard Ruffini directly or schedule your free consultation at 248.353.2225 or fill out the insurance form. We offer everyone a free no obligation consultation.
