In-Depth Examination & Imaging
After the initial phone consultation, all prospective patients must have a thorough examination and report of findings appointment, prior to receiving any treatment. After filling out the new patient questionnaires and reviewing with the doctor your health concerns, you will be examined. The full examination visit takes 60-90 minutes. You will be given a prescription to get X-rays (CT or MRI if needed) at a nearby imaging facility which you will schedule at your convenience. The imaging service will digitally send the results of your session to us.
By using the information gained from a patient’s exam and imaging, Dr. Kousouli can provide accurate information to the patient regarding their healing, rehabilitation, and - if necessary - their impairment rating. The measurements obtained from a patient’s X-rays also allow Dr. Kousouli to determine severity and arrive at a rational decision for spinal healing and rehabilitation. After all the data from your examination and imaging is collected by our office, you will be scheduled for a thourough 60 minute presentation of all the doctor's and radiologist's findings, called your "Report of Findings" Appointment. This appointment will be scheduled with our office seperately.
At this time, together with the doctor, you will choose the care plan that is right for you and you will start your personalized care program.
