Examination, Imaging and the Report of Findings
All patients must have an thorough examination prior to receiving treatment. After filling out the new patient questionnaire and talking with the doctor about your health concerns, you will be examined. The process takes about 60 minutes. You will be given a prescription to get X-rays ( and CT or MRI's if needed) at a nearby imaging facility scheduled at your convenience.
By using the information gained from a patient’s X-rays, 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 correction and rehabilitation. After all the data from your examination and imaging is collected, you will be scheduled for a presentation of all the doctor's and radiologist's findings, called your "Report of Findings" Appointment.
At this time, together with the doctor, you will choose the care plan that is right for you.
