Your First Appointment: New Patient Examination & History
At your first visit Dr. Kaminsky will go through your health history and intake forms. Your specific reasons for coming in will be addressed and the goals for your health will be discussed as you go through your health history of symptoms and conditions.
A comprehensive Initial Intake form must be filled out before seeing the doctor. Family medical history, pre-existing conditions, prior injuries, current health providers and past treatments are helpful to disclose.
In the office your goals will be discussed, followed by physical examination focusing on musculoskeletal, soft tissue and spinal alignment areas, and evaluation of your body’s energetic system, specifically Chakras, Meridian Points and Biofield / Aura.
These evaluation tools will be used to better assess your condition and help identify hands-on care needed.
After the session, treatment frequency and quantity will be recommended
The 10 Step Protocol is sometimes administered during the first session as it is a good way to establish a base line. More specific techniques are applied on a case by case basis. Techniques originate from the various treatment and healing methods Dr. Kaminsky has studied.
An evaluation of children is very comparable to that of adults but with the parent / guardian present. One point of importance to understand is that Dr. Kaminsky may need to discuss additional aspects without the child’s presence as he does not like to discuss sensitive topics in front of the kids of cognizant age, not wanting to put any self-limiting ideas in your child’s mind. In this case, he will always make time later or the next day to speak via telephone about anything left unsaid during the initial visit. This does not change or take away from the same-day care of the child. Everything is always thoroughly explained and discussed. Dr. Kaminsky makes it a point to be in touch and communicate openly with the child and the parents.
Same with adults, encouraged to communicate in-office or with call or text after the initial session. Communications are encouraged as valuable feedback is important for the further care of the patient.
