What to Expect From Dr. Passov

First visit

calabasas-alternative-healthDuring your first consultation we discuss your symptoms, your wellness goals, and how chiropractic care, acupuncture, and clinical nutrition can aid you. I conduct a thorough examination and history to help identify the underlying causes of your problem, and assess whether we need to order lab testing.

Your first visit can take anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half, so please schedule accordingly.

Report of findings visit

After studying your health history and examination findings, I present you with a report of findings. In this visit I review your health status and present a customized treatment plan designed to address your symptoms and the underlying problems causing them.

Regular chiropractic and acupuncture visits

After we have invested in developing a treatment plan, it’s time to implement it with regular care at the office and, when necessary, modifications to your diet or lifestyle at home. This is the heart of your care, during which we begin influencing your physiology and nudging your body back to its natural state of wellness.

I evaluate the condition of your spine and nervous system and use this information together with your history, exam findings, and lab results to begin treatments. Like workout at the gym, improvement depends on consistency, with each session building on the session before. Missing visits can stall the momentum necessary to make changes.

A typical office visit takes 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the modalities employed. I recognize your time is valuable and make punctuality and efficiency a priority.

Eating before visits

Stable blood sugar before appointments allows you to maximize the benefits from your treatments. Please make sure you have eaten a snack or meal within four hours prior to your appointment—please do not come in on an empty stomach.
