When you first come to our office, you will be asked to complete our Confidential Patient Information questionnaire to allow us to get to know you and your problem better. Once the paperwork is completed, one of our staff will escort you to our examination room where they will explain our fees and office policies. They will also be happy to answer any questions about our office. To save time, you can download our questionnaire and bring it with you on your first visit, fax it to us at 416.747.9671 or scan it and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.

You will then meet Dr. McCarthy, who will review your health history and determine if yours is a chiropractic case. If chiropractic treatment cannot help your problem, you will be told this and you will be referred to someone that can help you. There is no charge for a consultation.
Standard physical, orthopaedic, neurological and chiropractic tests will then be performed to determine the exact cause(s) of your problem.
X-rays may be required to visualize any serious spinal problems such as pathology, disease, injury or damage to the joint structures. Chiropractors will also use x-rays as an important tool to help them determine exactly how to treat you. The information we get from those x-rays can often decrease the time necessary to get you better.
We have an x-ray lab near by that will perform all required x-rays to our personal standards. OHIP will cover the technical portion of your x-rays but they will NOT cover the reading fee for those x-rays. There will be an X-Ray reading fee for ALL x-rays viewed by Dr. McCarthy, including those already taken by your doctor. See our Fee Schedule for current fees.
