When you walk into our office, you will immediately notice we are not like other chiropractors. Our office is not stuffy and does not provide an overly clinical atmosphere; instead, it is an open space that allows for patients to get to know one another. You aren’t greeted by a receptionist or a front desk, but rather both doctors and a fridge with refreshments, likely from somewhere local to St. Pete. On most days you will find us in jeans or workout attire, and if you happen to schedule at the right time, you may even get to meet Pepper and Percy Maltese, our resident chihuahuas. We want our patients to feel as comfortable as possible from the moment they walk in, to the moment Dr. Joe says goodbye with his signature fist bump. We take the time to get to know each of our patients and build solid relationships with them. We truly look forward to treating each one.
What to Expect on Your First Visit
On your first visit, we will perform a consultation which we refer to as a functional evaluation, in which we cover your reason for your visit and what your goals are. After your consultation, you will receive your first treatment. Because treatment often involves soft tissue work like cupping and scraping, we recommend that patients wear clothing that will accommodate this, like a tank top for shoulder pain or shorts for hip or knee pain. If Dr. Joe or Dr. Natasha believe follow-up treatment is necessary, they will let you know.
Because we do not accept insurance, we are able to spend ample time with patients. Your first visit will typically last about 45 minutes, and follow-up treatments usually last for 15 minutes. We recommend arriving a few minutes early to your first appointment to meet your doctor and fill out a bit of paperwork.
