What to Expect

Welcome to Family Chiropractic Office! Our warm and friendly practice is the ideal place to improve your health, whether you’re looking for relief care or seeking optimal wellness. With locations on the North Fork and Shelter Island, we can provide our patients with convenient and effective chiropractic care. And because we respect our patients’ time, we run on time.

Your First Visit

To save time, we encourage you to download the new patient paperwork from our website and complete it in advance. Otherwise, please plan to arrive 15 minutes before your appointment to finish it.
This first visit takes about 30 minutes. You will have a conversation with Dr. Hinsch about your health concerns. He’ll then provide a brief explanation of chiropractic. In the majority of cases, he will then perform an examination and take X-rays if needed. If you have MRI studies, CT scans or X-rays that were performed elsewhere, please bring those to the appointment.

Your Second Visit

This appointment, which also takes approximately 30 minutes, is sometimes scheduled later that same day, or the following day. Dr. Hinsch will go over a report of his findings and let you know what’s wrong and what’s causing the problem. He’ll also provide recommendations for care and will let you know what you need to do to help us. We look at the doctor-patient relationship as a partnership. Those who get the most out of chiropractic are the ones who participate actively in their care.

Regular Visits

These visits take 10 minutes or less, though some can take longer depending on a patient’s condition. To save you time, Dr. Hinsch will recommend that you schedule out a series of chiropractic adjustment appointments, so you don’t have to make appointments at the end of each visit.

Do I Have to Go for Life?

To help you make an informed decision about how long you want to be a chiropractic patient, Dr. Hinsch will outline a program of care that may last 1, 2 or 3 weeks. At the end of that time, he will repeat the same examination that he performed on your first visit. Then he’ll show you your progress compared to your initial exam.

If you’re happy with the results and want to see if you can maintain those we invite you to continue care. If, on the other hand, you want to come back only when you feel you need care, we’re happy to see you on those occasions as well. The choice is always yours. We’re here for you!
