Welcome to Comal Springs Community Acupuncture!
Our goal at Comal Springs CA is to provide efficient, cost-effective care that helps you achieve your personal health goals, whatever they may be. We get quick, effective results so that you feel confident recommending us to your family, friends, loved ones and co-workers. We believe, and our experiences has shown, that once you are strong and well, you do not need ongoing visits or treatments.
Most new patients complete a Free Consultation as their first appointment at the clinic. This brief discussion is designed to allow you time to meet with your clinician to find out if our services are a good fit for you. Your clinician will briefly review your paperwork and may ask you questions relevant to your case. You will have the opportunity to ask your clinician questions as well. You may be referred to a physician for additional medical testing if needed. In most cases, however, once we determine that we are a good fit, we are able to proceed to the next step, which is your Intake Appointment.
Intake Appointment and Treatment Plan
At your intake appointment, your clinician will get all the necessary details about your case in order to formulate a customized Treatment Plan for you. This appointment generally lasts 60 to 90 minutes. If you are opting for acupuncture, you will receive your first treatment at this visit. Your printed treatment plan will detail the exact recommendations of your clinician including the number of visits appropriate for your case, nutritional supplements, herbal medications and dietary/lifestyle adjustments. After this session, we encourage you to pre-book future appointments as our schedule fills up very quickly.
Once you have completed your intake appointment, you will return for regular follow-up visits at a frequency that you and your clinician agree upon. The follow-up visits are designed to give ongoing support to the therapeutic goals. Your clinician will monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan. If you are an acupuncture patient, an acupuncture treatment is also performed at each follow-up visit.
As you progress through the treatments and improvements stabilize, your follow-up visits will become less frequent until you no longer need them. You and your clinician will work together to decide when it is appropriate to start reducing your follow-up visits.
Ongoing Wellness Care
Some patients choose to come back for periodic visits after their treatment plan has completed. This can be helpful in maintaining a higher level of wellness over the long term. We are happy to continue seeing you if it is something you are interested in. Of course, if for any reason your clinician feels that ongoing wellness care might be necessary for you, he/she will let you know.
