"My mission is to help as many people in my lifetime as I can... especially children!"
-Dr. Michael Schultz
We understand that everyone wants to just jump into things and get started as fast as possible. We are just as enthusiastic! But please know that the purpose of the new patient visit is for the doctor to determine the underlying cause of your, or your child’s, health concerns. We want to learn as much about you as we can so that we can solve whatever health concerns you may be having. In our chiropractic and wellness centre, the process may involve up to 3 appointments, depending on if x-rays are required. The doctor will let you know during the first appointment in the office what is required.
Day 1: The Consultation and Examination
When you arrive at the centre you will be greeted by one of our friendly staff members and asked to fill out intake forms. It is important that you arrive to your appointment on time. Your initial visit will begin with a very thorough, one on one, consultation with the doctor. The doctor will discuss with you any health concerns you have. At this visit the doctor will perform a complete examination, which will include detailed neurological, orthopedic and chiropractic tests. If this appointment is for your child, know that you will experience, very likely, the most thorough and incredible exam your child has ever been through. We take very special pride in the quality of the pediatric side of our practice. Your child is in very gentle and good hands with our doctor!
Day 2: The X-Ray Appointment (if needed)
The doctor may recommend x-rays. If he does, a separate x-ray appointment will be set up. We have our own on-site digital x-ray facility for your convenience.
Day 3: Your Report of Findings
After the doctor has had a chance to review all of your test results and view your x-rays, you will come back for your report of findings. At this visit the doctor will sit down with you, one-on-one, and discuss the findings. The doctor will provide a recommended plan of management to correct the problem and restore your health. It is at this visit that you will be able to receive your first chiropractic adjustment.
A Fun Note To Parents Who Are Bringing In Their Child For A Check-Up: Dr. Mike has personally custom built arguably the worlds best pediatric table! Its a Fire Engine, built from scratch, with all the bells and whistles! Flashing lights, leather seats for all of the teddy bears to sit on while they drive, stairs for children to walk up onto the table, Ontario license plates, and much more! Kids absolutely love getting adjusted on the Fire Engine. Sorry Adults, there is both a height and a weight restriction so No Adults Allowed on the Fire Engine!
