When you arrive at The Joint & Injury Institute, you will be greeted by our friendly staff and will be asked to complete your Patient Qualification Intake Form (you can also conveniently complete your Patient Qualification Intake Form online by clicking HERE).
After you have completed your Intake Form, you’ll be introduced to Dr. Richard R Shaker, D.C. where he will take a complete history of your condition, followed by our comprehensive examination to determine if you’re a good candidate for care.
Furthermore, Dr. Richard R Shaker, D.C. will assess any imaging (e.g. MRI, CT or X-Rays) that you may have to get a better insight into your concern. If you don’t have any imaging, we may take x-rays.
After your examination, you will be booked for your Report Of Findings Appointment at which time Dr. Richard R Shaker, D.C.
will inform you of your examination findings and if you’re a potential candidate for our care.
Please Note: Treatments will not be perform on your first visit as Dr. Richard R Shaker, D.C. must assess your findings first.
