Your First Visit

Patient Forms

If possible, we ask that you complete our new patient forms located under the New Patient tab of our website. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.  This will allow you to see the doctor as soon as possible once you get to our office.  Please bring your insurance card with you to your first visit.  You can expect your first visit in our office to take 45 minutes to an hour.

 


 

Consultation

Next, you will have a consultation with either Dr. Sorrentino or Dr. Peddie to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for the doctor to learn more about you, your condition, and  expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.


Examination

After your consultation the doctor will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well.  This allows the doctor to make the most accurate diagnosis of your condition.

 


 

X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, the doctor may refer you for X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop  the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of  any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.  We do not take X-rays at our facility, but refer our patients to Scottsdale Medical Imaging for any required studies, located at Thompson Peak and Scottsdale Rd, less than a mile away.


Report of Findings

Once the information is collected  and examinations are performed, your doctor will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

  1. How can you help me?
  2. How often do I need to come in?
  3. What  will  my treatment  cost?

After reviewing your health history,  goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, your doctor will discuss recommendations and notify you if  your condition  requires care with other providers.   Drs. Sorrentino and Peddie will  provide the best  treatment and  wellness program for your needs.


Treatment

 At the conclusion of your report of findings, you can choose to  experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage.  Treatment is interactive, so  you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment  anytime.


Home Recommendations

Prior to leaving, your doctor will suggest a  wellness program  to incorporate outside of treatment.  If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches.  If you desire,  we will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle.  Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a  customized wellness plan.  The purpose  of our wellness program is for   you  to achieve good spinal alignment, have a  healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
