New Patients

Welcome to Lifetime Health & Wellness! Our welcoming, warm and family-friendly environment is the ideal place to get the natural healing your body needs to function at its best. Our practice features a large treatment area. As it’s an open bay concept families can get care without doors separating them. This feature is ideal for kids who are visiting the office for the first time.

If their parents are getting adjusted, they will have the opportunity to see other kids getting adjusted, which helps to alleviate any potential nervousness.

We try to accommodate parents as much as possible and even feature a Pack ‘n Play that their young children can play in safely. Plenty of toys are available for kids to play with and we also feature stuffed animals that can be adjusted!


The First Visit

During this first visit, you’ll receive a comprehensive consultation and examination. You’ll have the opportunity to discuss your health-related problems, concerns and potential treatment options.

Dr. Dougherty will perform a thorough chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and range of motion. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. We incorporate computerized spinal examinations as part of our diagnostic procedures.

Please allow an hour for this initial appointment.

The Second Visit

When you return either the next day or the soonest day possible. Dr. Dougherty will give you a detailed report of all findings. She’ll let you know if she can help you, how long it will take to correct, and how much care will cost. You’ll be given a customized game plan to address your particular concern. Every 12 visits Dr. Dougherty will re-examine you to ensure that you’re not only feeling better but that you’re getting better.

You will be given your first chiropractic adjustment at this appointment, which takes about 20-30 minutes.

Do I Have to Commit to Care for Life?

You’re always in the driver’s seat when it comes to your health. Once you’ve completed your plan of care, it’s up to you if you want to maintain the great changes you’ve made. It’s like exercising and eating well. You’re going to continue working out as long as you want to be strong and feel strong and you’re going to continue to eat well as long as you want to maintain a healthy weight or just feel good and be healthy.

It’s the same thing with dentistry. Just because you don’t have a cavity doesn’t mean you’d stop brushing and flossing your teeth, right? While regular checkups and good oral hygiene habits keep your teeth healthy, getting chiropractic maintenance care can keep your spine healthy and help you enjoy better overall health.
