New Patients at Dr. Lichter and Associates

Sometimes it helps to know what to expect when you try something new. Even if you’ve had chiropractic care in the past, each chiropractor cares for their patients differently. We hope that by giving you an overview of what to expect in your first couple of visits, you will feel at ease with your Tampa chiropractors.

Thorough History & Customized Plan

Every patient undergoes a thorough health history, consultation and examination to determine if they are in the appropriate office. Following the evaluation process, every patient is presented with a treatment plan, a set of goals, and an estimated time frame for recovery. Because of our broad menu of services, many patients receive a combination of two or more modalities to help them find relief faster from back and neck pain.

Treatment plans are reasonable, and no scare tactics or pressure are placed on any patient to commit to excessively long programs of care. Frequent reassessments are done to determine if the initial plan is appropriate or needs to be modified.

Let’s Get Started

Your first visit will last between 45 minutes and an hour. During that time you will complete paperwork, have a consult, exam and X-rays (if necessary). If you want to fill out your paperwork before you arrive, please download/print our form, fill it out and bring it with you.


You may receive therapy and be given home care instructions. A report of the findings will be given to you the next day.

Second Visit

Your second visit will also last 45 minutes to an hour. We will review your exam findings and discuss treatment options, answer all your questions and if we feel we can help, we will begin your course of treatment.
