Your initial visit will consist of an assessment of your condition including relevant history and an examination. Dr. Nova Gibson will review your case history and any X-rays or CT scans you bring along. If required, further tests or X-rays may be ordered at your initial visit.

Following the initial visit and any further reviews of additional tests or X-rays; a treatment plan will be written for implementation.

If you have any questions or concerns during this process please feel free to contact us at any time.
