Your First Visit

New patient filling out paperwork

Our new patient forms can be downloaded and completed in the convenience of your own home.

Upon your first visit, our receptionist will greet you and welcome you as a new patient to our office. We will request you fill out our new patient forms and we will obtain your insurance information. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition. Next you will have a consultation with Dr. Bob DeFever to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.

We Explain Everything First

Your first visit is designed to learn more about you, your condition and your expectations to determine whether chiropractic care will help meet your goals. After your consultation, Dr. Bob DeFever will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes, your ability to turn and bend, as well as neurologic, orthopedic, postural and physical examinations. At this point, Dr. Bob DeFever will determine which x-rays will need to be taken, if any.

After discussing with you your history and your goals, examining your spine and reviewing your x-rays or tests, Dr. Bob DeFever will discuss his recommended treatment plan with you. Patients will then be provided with their first treatment at the conclusion of the appointment.


Dr. Bob DeFever, 1617 Grove St, Marysville, WA (360) 659-6241
