Before You Arrive
Make sure to bring the following with you to your appointment:
- New patient paperwork, if printed at home
- Your insurance card(s)
- Any X-rays, MRIs or medical reports
- Recommendations from other doctors
- A list of your medications
Your First Visit
Once you arrive at our office, you will be greeted by one of our receptionists. We will request that you complete our patient forms prior to coming to the office. We can email you the forms, or have you fill them out when you arrive at the office. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Kashi. In the consultation you will discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for our team to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals. If you have questions prior to the consultation, please call our office at 410-285-2600.
Once your consultation is complete, Dr. Kashi will perform a chiropractic examination. The examination will test your range of motion and examine your spine. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical examination tests will be performed as well as needed. Please note that nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
- Depending on your specific condition, we may request to see X-Rays that you have and we may ask you to take X-rays.
- Why X-rays? X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and give us insight into any serious spinal conditions. In some cases, X-Rays can even identify any misalignments and degeneration that is occurring.
Your Second Visit
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Kashi will give you a detailed report of all the findings and answer any questions you may have, including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, our team will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Our team often co-manages patient’s conditions with other providers, including physical therapists, orthopedic surgeons, neurologists, pain management physicians, and primary care physicians in Baltimore and the surrounding communities.
