New Patients

Welcome to Coastal Family Wellness! Our welcoming, airy and relaxing environment is the ideal place to begin your journey toward healing and optimal health. You will be offered tea or water from one of our staff members. We are also a very kid-friendly practice with an assortment of toys and puzzles available for your little ones.

The First Visit

To save time we will email our new patient paperwork to you ahead of time, so you can complete it at home and bring it in. During your first appointment with Dr. Lisa, you can expect the following:

  • A consultation
  • Health history
  • An exam
  • A chiropractic adjustment (in most cases)

Please note that we don’t do X-rays on-site. We refer out for them when we think they’re necessary. Allow 45 minutes to an hour for this appointment.

The Second Visit

You will be encouraged to come back for the second appointment as soon as possible, such as the following day. This appointment is the report of findings visit. It typically takes about half an hour. Dr. Lisa will let you know the results of your exam and will review with you her recommendations for care. This is called the initial care plan. During your care, her objectives are to get your chief complaint or issue resolved then move into the corrective phase.

We do offer discounted packages for care at our practice so we will discuss those with you as well.

Ongoing Visits

Regularly scheduled visit are much quicker at about 10 to 15 minutes each.

Do I Have to Go Forever?

After the eight-week phase, you will transition into the corrective phase and maintenance stage. When it comes to kids who have neurosensory issues, their care plans are more long term (usually 3-6 months). Again, we offer packages that allow for unlimited visits.

Are you ready to get on the path toward better health? Contact us today to schedule an appointment. We’re open Saturday.
