New Patients :: What to Expect

We warmly welcome you to Dr Frank C Bemis & Associates. We’re here to support you on your journey to wellness!

The First Day

New Patient Forms

Please download, print, and complete these forms so you can bring them with you to your first visit:

New Patient Paperwork

You will be greeted by our friendly staff and welcomed to our office. Forms will be available for you to fill out, or you can download them here and bring them in with you already competed. Then you’ll receive a complimentary consultation from the doctor. An evaluation will help us determine if chiropractic will help you and if our office is the right place for you. If so, a focused examination is given on the spinal column and the rest of your body. X-rays will be taken on-site if needed. Your first visit with us will take 45-60 minutes, including the time necessary to complete paperwork.

The Second Day

This visit will consist of going over the findings from your initial evaluation and receiving a chiropractic adjustment. We encourage your spouse or another family member to attend this visit with you, so they understand what to expect. Your second visit with us will take 30-45 minutes.

Regular Visits

The following visits will take 10-15 minutes. We will work with you to educate you on the benefits of chiropractic and the effects of helping you create a better quality of life. We’ll never decide what’s best for you, so the choice is always yours.
