My First Visit

Consultation

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. Eric Cohen 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. Eric Cohen can help you, the doctor will let you know. If Dr. Eric Cohen cannot help you, you will be refered to a doctor that will be able to help you the most. Nothing will be done in our office without your consent.

Examination

After a thorough consultation with the doctor, 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

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.

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. Eric Cohen directly or schedule your free consultation at 561.641.1111 or fill out the insurance form. We offer everyone a free no obligation consultation.

For patients who have little or no chiropractic insurance coverage, flexible payment programs can be arranged.
