On your first visit to Dr. Gerard in Austin, you should expect to be greeted by our friendly staff when you arrive for your appointment. To save time and secure your appointment, fill out your paperwork online here.
One of the things that make us so unique is your first visit in our office. Dr. Gerard will begin with a thorough and specific consultation regarding all areas of your health, not just your current symptoms. She will then perform a comprehensive examination, including evaluating your posture for any abnormal postural distortions, palpation of your spine for vertebral misalignments and tone, range of motion, and other neurological testing, as needed. Following your exam, we generally take standing, postural x-rays on adults. We rarely take x-rays on children, and never on pregnant women. We truly believe that to see is to know, not to see is to guess, and we do not guess with your health. Dr. Gerard will analyze your x-rays in great detail and combine the information with your consultation and examination findings. She will then go over these results in-depth with you on your next visit so that you understand exactly what is going on with your nervous system, spine, and health.
If we find that you are a candidate for care in our office and we decide to work together, Dr. Gerard’s commitment to you is that she will tell you honestly if she believes she can help you and how much improvement you are likely to experience. She will also tell you if she ever thinks you need to do something else in addition to, or instead of chiropractic care and provide appropriate referrals for you.
Are you ready to take the next step toward better health? Call us today at (512) 346-3536 to schedule or request your appointment here. We will then have an in-depth conversation to see if we can help you and if you are a candidate for chiropractic care in our office.
