Choosing a new healthcare doctor can be intimidating, especially if you're new to the idea of chiropractic. At Kinetic Chiropractic Studio, Dr. Cranfield will make sure your experience is as streamline and stress-free as possible.
First thing a new patient should know is the parking downtown Nashville is limited and confusing, but our office is supplied with a parking garage directly beside the building, free for our patients, so please feel free to park there!
When you enter the building, you take the elevator to the third floor and our office is directly to the right where you will be greeted by the receptionist. Dr. Cranfield will not keep you waiting and is diligent about respecting your time. The only paperwork you will need to fill out in office is our informed consent form, which will be fully explained to you and all your concerns will be addressed. All other paperwork will be filled out prior to your visit in the convenience of your home through our patient portal, where you can access all the forms beforehand. This will allow us to treat you promptly without the annoying delay of paperwork.
Dr. Cranfield will then perform a detailed examination on you in order to determine the best treatment options for your individual case. The exam can take up to 20 minutes and it is best to be prepared with loose-fitting, comfortable clothes. After your exam, Dr. Cranfield will determine if x-rays are needed, but not everyone will be receiving x-rays. If it is determined not necessary to have x-rays, you will be given a detailed explanation of what has been found on your exam and Dr. Cranfield's plans for your care, and you will be treated on this visit. Treatment will differ from person to person, but will include any myofascial work needed, a chiropractic adjustment best suited for the patient, therapeutic stretches, and exercises. If x-rays are necessary, you will be referred to an imaging facility and scheduled for your follow-up treatment and report of findings as soon as possible.
After your treatment you will be offered care plan options as well as Dr. Cranfield's suggestions as to what is needed for you personally to achieve your healthcare goals. There will be no pressure to sign up for any plan. This is your decision and it will be respected. After determining if you'd like a plan or not, you will pay for your visit and be asked if you'd like to get on our schedule for another appointment. You will be given home exercises to maximize your results. And that's it!
Kinetic Chiropractic Studio is a cash practice and does not accept insurance or Medicare. You can request a printout of your treatment and the associated costs and we will gladly provide it to you so you can file for insurance benefits. Dr. Cranfield designed her care plans to be affordable to all income levels so please call if you have any questions on cost of care prior to your appointment.
We look forward to your visit!
