New Patients

Our doctors use an all-encompassing approach to health care. They both strongly believe that everyone heals differently and therefore may need a varied plan to achieve health. With their variety of practice techniques and training through Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Emily & Dr. Ricci are well equipped to help you and your family today!


Items to Bring With You

  • If you plan on using your insurance, bring that information with you

  • Valid driver’s license

  • Current insurance card

  • Spinal X-rays (if you have a copy available to you)

Appointment Duration

New patient appointments last approximately 45-60 minutes. After that adjustments will only take about 5 to 15 minutes. 

Your Consultation

Your new patient appointment will consist of a history review with either Dr. Emily Brown or Dr. Ricci Swiderek. Following this will be a spinal examination and evaluation of the functioning of your nervous system. Included in this exam is a 3D foot scan to determine weight distribution. X-rays may be necessary pending what the examination reveals. Assuming no further testing is needed and it is safe to proceed with treatment, an adjustment may be given on your first visit.


Your Treatment

Your second appointment will consist of a brief review of findings from your examination. Your doctor will share her findings with you and the best course of treatment. At this time it is up to you to determine what best fits your schedule and individual health goals.  

Wellness Recommendations

A full wellness treatment plan may be given to each individual upon request based on their health goals. This plan may include adjustments, nutrition, and any other procedures that your doctor feels will benefit the individual and aid in their healing process.
