As a new patient, you’ll need to give us some information about your background, medical history and the nature of your condition. This will enable us to provide you with the best possible care, tailored to your specific circumstances.

Initial Paperwork

We will need to fill out forms that provide general information about you and your condition. Our staff is happy to assist you with the paperwork and if you prefer you may download and complete some of the information prior to coming into our office.

Consultation

During your first consultation with Dr. Burle, you’ll discuss any health-related issues and concerns and learn about potential treatment options.

History and examination
In order to pinpoint the problem, Dr. Burle will ask you a number of questions related to your condition. A variety of targeted tests may be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.

X-rays
Your specific condition may require x-rays be taken to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in assessing the most effective treatment plan for you.

Same-day treatment
Patients will generally undergo their first treatment on their first visit after the examination and x-rays are completed. This may include spinal adjustments and physiotherapy.

Home instructions
Before leaving, you will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat applications, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as some home exercises.

Scheduling the next appointment

Regular treatment is essential to the process. We work our treatments around your schedule. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days of their initial visit and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed at this time.

We realize as a new patient you will have many questions and concerns. Please feel free to review our website for helpful information and if you have further questions, just contact us.
