Your first visit — what to expect

Your first appointment with our team of compassionate specialists begins with a thorough exam and background discussion. We’ll ask you questions about any pain or discomfort you are experiencing, and find out more about your personal goals for treatment — more strength or increased endurance for example.

After your exam, you’ll receive a treatment plan and a complete explanation of your journey to greater mobility and independence.

To ensure your visit goes smoothly:

  • Arrive 15 minutes before your appointment time to complete paperwork.
  • Please bring any outside records related to the reason for your visit.
  • Bring a disc of x-rays or MRIs that pertain to your visit if they were not done within The University of Kansas Health System.
  • Have a list of current medications you are taking that includes names, dosage and frequency of use.
  • Have a current ID and insurance card with you.

We look forward to working with you along the road to recovery and a better quality of life.
