What should I expect on my first consult?
The first consult is used to take a really good look at the patient and it enables the practitioner to collect a vast amount of information about your problem. This is done through taking a history and examination of your presenting issue. (40 Minutes)
In this first consult treatment may or may not be given depending on the presenting issue as the patient may need more testing such as an X ray before treatment can commence.
An in depth discussion of your problem and the plan of action on how to treat it will be given. This consult also enables the patient to ask any questions they may have in regards to treatment. (40 minutes)
The standard consult it where we perform our treatment. (20 mins)
