What To Expect
Although we consider ourselves experts at what we do, we certainly don’t pretend to be experts on every health issue or condition. Therefore, our first step is to determine if your case is something that fits under our umbrella of expertise. Secondly, although our programs produce some amazing results, achieving these results take WORK on our patients part. True healing takes time and our programs are not “quick fix” solutions. They take dedication to following our recommendations and determination in changing some of your lifestyle habits.
We coach clients both in our office and virtually (via phone & internet) from all over the country. It is impossible for us to accept every case as we are limited with both our time slots and how many hours there are in a day, which is why we are very selective in who we accept for care. However, we do offer every potential client a free phone consult with Dr. Thompson to find out if their condition is something he believes he can help and if he believes they would have the commitment necessary to achieve success in regaining their health with our program.
If you believe that you are someone who would be committed to their health and you would like to see if your condition is something Dr. Thompson feels he could help you with then please call our office to schedule a phone consultation.
Your first visit
What we do at our office is very unique and different even compared to most other health providers and medical doctors. However, it is what we do different that enables us to get the amazing results that we see in our office.
All new patients are requested to fill out, read and sign the new patient application forms as completely as possible. These can be printed out by clicking the button below and faxed to 307-637-5458 when completed, or you can call the office and we will send you paperwork that can be filled out on your computer and sent back via email (this option does not work well with smart phones).
It is important that we have your paperwork in the office before your appointment. This allows Dr. Thompson the time to become familiar with your case before you arrive for your appointment and it also decreases the amount of waiting time you will have to do in the office.
A one-on-one consultation with Dr. Thompson will be done to discuss your health issues and goals, uncover any layers of past damage and to help determine what may be causing your problem(s).
A comprehensive chiropractic examination and evaluation including all necessary tests will be performed to further help determine the precise cause of your problem. These tests could include orthopedic and neurologic tests, palpation, posture analysis, body composition analysis, nerve function analysis and specific bio-mechanical x-ray analysis. These tests will enable us to pin point, measure, and determine the cause of your problems.
When it comes to the importance and crucial role of your spine and nervous system controlling every cell, tissue and organ in your body, we do not want to guess on your health. To see is to know.
If the doctor finds any damage in your spine, which is causing and or contributing to the problems that you are experiencing, you will be scheduled for a special follow-up appointment called the Doctor’s Report.
At the Doctor’s Report, Dr. Thompson will review with you:
- What’s causing your problem(s).
- How it’s affecting your health right now and how it will affect it in the future.
- What needs to be done in the office and at home to fix the problem.
- What the cost will be for care.
For those reasons, if you have a spouse or a significant other who needs to be present in the decision making of your health and care they MUST be at this appointment. One of the main reasons we get such amazing, life changing results in our office is because we educate our patients and we teach them how to help themselves. If a patient is not willing to take an active part in correcting their problems (doing rehab exercises at home etc) then we will be fighting a losing battle and they would not be a good candidate for care in our office.
Once accepted as a patient, due to the specific requirements and conditions needed to correct your problem, you will initiate care and start on your path to reaching your God-given health potential.
Congratulations on taking the first steps to creating true wellness from within. Remember, your health outcomes are based on your health choices.
Typical Office Visit
After Dr. Thompson has developed an individualized plan of attack for getting your health back on track and has given you instructions on how to perform any in office therapy needed you will be ready to begin correcting your problem(s). Our goal is not only to provide you with the best quality of chiropractic care but also to respect your time and provide this care in an efficient manner.
The average visit at this point in time takes only about 10-15 minutes in our office. We respect your time as much as ours. We know you are busy and the last thing you want to do is spend the day at our office so we run our office in an efficient manner to make sure that we are on time for your appointments. A really bad day in our office is when Dr. Thompson is running five minutes late.
