The goal of our office is to enable patients to gain control of their health. To attain this we believe communication is the key. There are often topics that are hard to understand and we hope this document will clarify those issues for you.

Please read the below and if you have any questions please feel free to ask one of our staff members. Informed Consent:

A patient, in coming to the chiropractic doctor, gives the doctor permission and authority to care for the patient in accordance with the chiropractic tests, diagnosis, and analysis. The chiropractic adjustment or other clinical procedures are usually beneficial and seldom cause

any problems. In rare cases, underlying physical defects, deformities or pathologies may render the patient susceptible to injury. The doctor, of course, will not give any treatment or care if he/she is aware that such care may be contra-indicated. Again, it is the responsibility of the patient to make it known, or to learn through healthcare procedures what he/she is suffering from: latent pathological

defects, illnesses or deformities which would otherwise not come to the attention of the chiropractic physician. The chiropractic doctor provides a specialized, non-duplicating health care service. Your doctor of chiropractic is licensed in a special practice and is available to

work with other types of providers in your health care regimen. I understand that if I am accepted as a patient by a physician at Mowry Chiropractic, I am authorizing them to proceed with any treatment that they deem necessary. Furthermore, any risk involved, regarding

chiropractic treatment, will be explained to me upon my request.

Women Only:

To the best of my knowledge I am / am NOT pregnant and (give my permission / don’t give permission) to x-ray me for diagnostic interpretation.

(Circle one above) (Circle one above)

Missed Appointments:

There is a possible fee charged for all appointments that are not canceled prior to scheduled visit. Any massage appointment that is not canceled 24 hours prior to scheduled appointment will be charged $35 - $70

Consent to Evaluate and Treat a Minor:

I, _______________________________ being the parent or legal guardian of _____________________________, have read and fully understand the above terms of acceptance and hereby grant permission for my child to receive chiropractic care.

Communications:

In the event that we would need to communicate your healthcare information, to whom may we do so? Spouse: ____________________________________________________

Children: ___________________________________________________ Others: _____________________________________________________ No one: ____

May we leave messages regarding your personal healthcare information on any answering device, i.e. home answering machines or voicemails? Yes [ ] No [ ]
