What to Expect

The First Visit

When you come in we will ask you to complete some paperwork. The goal is to determine why you’re here. We’ll give you ample time to discuss your concerns and what you’re hoping to achieve. As part of the conversation, Dr. Drake will do a lifestyle evaluation and find out what areas in your life are being compromised from your current health status. She will explain her approach and style.

I’ll ask if they think this is a good fit and will tell them if I can help them or not.

Next, she will perform an exam and treatment. You’ll be asked to make an appointment for the following visit. Dr. Drake usually likes to see patients come back within the first week. Expect this first appointment to take just under an hour.

The Second Visit

At this appointment, we’ll ask what improvements you are seeking for your health. Dr. Drake will discuss the lifestyle evaluation and will determine if small personal changes will speed up the recovery process.. “Real health is a journey, not a destination. Patients need to understand their own role and responsibility.” Dr. Drake wants to ensure that you are clear in moving forward of what is expected of you and what you can expect from her. She will then treat you and set the appointment for the next visit. This appointment takes approximately 20 minutes.

Regular Visits

We know you’re busy. That’s why follow-up visits are brief, taking only 5-10 minutes.

Monthly Workshops

Monthly workshops are held at the practice on Monday evenings. While Dr. Drake will speak from time to time, she likes to bring in other health care practitioners to share their knowledge about various health and wellness topics. Future topics will include stress relief, yoga, nutrition and essential oils.

If you’re ready to put pain in your past and progress toward better health, contact us to schedule an appointment!
