What You May Expect at Your First Visit

Initial Visit Paperwork

Upon entering the office, you will be asked to complete some initial paperwork which provides us with general information about yourself and your condition. However, as Dr. Hillis delves into the specifics of your concerns, he may ask you to complete questionnaires and other surveys that help him diagnose and treat your specific condition.


Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.

History & Examination

In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.

Diagnostic Studies

Dr. Hillis may order x-rays, scans, laboratory testing, or other diagnostic studies to aid in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. Determining your nutrition and functional medicine needs may also require bloodwork to ascertain your current levels and potential treatment.

Consultation & Treatment

Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies along with dietary or lifestyle suggestions toward your treatment.

Treatment is a Collaborative Effort

As Dr. Hillis' approach is unique and comprehensive, he may ask you to review certain websites, articles, or other information before your next visit. Being open and honest about your progress, symptoms, and opinions on your treatment is welcomed by the doctor at any time. Your Path to Wellness is a collaborative effort!
