Consultation

On your first visit, 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. These forms are also located on this website.

Dr. Mike will then talk with you and ask you some specific questions regarding your health concerns to determine if chiropractic care may be of benefit to you. If the doctor can help you, we will let you know and if you need to be refered to another specialist who may be able to help you the most. Nothing will be done in our office without your consent.


Examination

After a thorough consultation in our office, you will have a complete chiropractic examination.

This will include standard orthopedic, neurologic, postural, and physical examinations. The doctor will gain valuable information regarding your condition so that you can have  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 Studies

Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to to get a full evaluation of a patient. X-rays help us rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.  Most people are amazed once they see their x-rays and can often immediately identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.


Report of Findings

Once all the information and examinations have been performed, Dr. Michael Burak will give you a report of findings to answer the three most popular questions: 

  1. Can you help me?
  2. What do you recommend that I do to get better?
  3. How much is it going to cost?

After discussing with you your history and your goals, examining your spine and reviewing any x-rays or tests, Dr. Burak will discuss recommendations with you. If you have a condition that requires care with other providers, the doctor will tell you. If Dr. Mike believes we can help you, he will recommend treatment and a wellness program.
