What can I expect at my first appointment?
Your first appointment involves a thorough medical history and physical examination. You can expect your appointment to last for an hour as your doctor learns about your health and concerns, performs a physical exam, and performs any follow-up testing.
During the exam, our Paragon team takes your vitals and then checks your breathing and reflexes. He also assesses the muscle strength, range of motion, and neurologic function of the affected body part.
Your doctor may order X-rays or other imaging tests during your appointment if he suspects you might have an underlying structural problem. After he gathers all your information and test results, our Paragon team can make his diagnosis and provide treatment recommendations.
To prepare for your first appointment, you should gather the following items to bring with you:
- A list of your current prescriptions and conditions you’re being treated for
- Any information about the circumstances surrounding your pain or injury
- A list of questions you have for your doctor
