What to Expect

We want to help you get well and be well, by giving you the tools to help you lead a healthy life.

The First Step

The first step in taking charge of your health is to call 480-219-1042 and make an appointment to see Dr. Istok.

Welcome mat

You will immediately feel at home the moment you walk in the door.

You can download your new patient paperwork and complete it at your leisure. This helps us know more about your medical history, maintain records and file your insurance claim. Bring the paperwork and your insurance card to your first visit.

When We First Meet

During your first visit, Dr. Istok will ask for a more in-depth history of your previous medical conditions, specifically what’s going on with the areas of complaint that brought you in for your appointment.

From there, she’ll perform a thorough exam, testing your reflexes, range of motion and other aspects of your current state. This will help her know whether or not to recommend X-rays. If she feels X-rays are needed, they’ll be done right here at our office.

After X-rays, you’ll get a spinal exam. Typically Dr. Istok won’t adjust on the first visit because she needs time to analyze the X-Rays in order to recommend the correct care for your body. Exceptions may be made on a case by case basis.

Second Visit

If you’re a first time chiropractic patient we’ll spend some time with you and answer your questions. We’ll explain the following:

  • What is chiropractic?
  • How does it work?
  • How will it affect different parts of your body?

Dr. Istok will go over the results of your X-rays and show you the trouble areas or subluxations. She’ll explain the cause of your problem and talk about how to go about making the most improvement and getting the best results in the shortest amount of time. Then you’ll get your adjustment. Because of her varied experience she has multiple ways of adjusting to make sure you are as comfortable as possible during this and each additional adjustment.
