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.
How to Begin
Please call 978.682-9639 to make your new patient appointment.
New Patient Appointment
We ask that you bring any recent x-rays, MRIs, or CAT Scans that are related to any spinal problems you may be suffering from. Please download the New Patient form in the next section and fill it out to the best of your knowledge. All history is helpful in this assessment. Please arrive to the exam 15 minutes early so that we can process your paperwork
Upon entering our office, we will help you to get settled. You will complete any additional paperwork needed, providing us with your health history form.
Patients under 18: New Patient Child form
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 Dr. Maryellen 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.
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.
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 few days or as your schedule 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?
