What to Expect at Dr. Tamara Kornelsen

Welcome mat

You will immediately feel at home the moment you walk in the door.

Since chiropractic care involves a series of visits, with each one building on the ones before, it’s important that our relationship can go the distance. We’ve found that one of the best ways to have successful patient relationships is to explain everything in advance. No surprises!

The more you understand who we are, what we do and why we do it, the better results you’ll enjoy. It’s as simple as that.

So, check us out here. Get to know us. Then, contact us at our Penticton chiropractic office to make an appointment so we can get to know you.

Your First Visit

New patients often remark how “homey” our practice is. That’s good, because our goal is to offer state-of-the-art chiropractic care in a comfortable surrounding.
Make Yourself at Home

You’ll find plenty of convenient parking and a well-lit parking lot. You’ll be greeted by name when you enter our practice and given a short tour to get you acquainted with our chiropractic facilities in Penticton.

If you’ve already completed your admitting paperwork, great! If not, after doing so we’ll likely show you a short 5-minute video and then you’ll meet Dr. Tamara Kornelsen.

We Explain Everything First

The purpose of your consultation with the chiropractor is to discuss your health goals and see if chiropractic is likely to help you. If it looks promising, a thorough examination will help identify the cause of your problem.

Patients appreciate that we explain everything in advance!


Your Second Visit

After we study your health history and correlate our examination findings, we’ll make recommendations designed to help you get and keep your health. We call this the Report of Findings.

This is usually attended to on your second visit, which may be later the same day or the following. This two-visit approach accomplishes several things:

Reduces the length of your first visit
Gives us time to correlate our findings
Avoids overloading you with too much information

In certain situations, and in the professional judgment of Dr. Kornelsen, we sometimes make exceptions. It just depends on your unique situation.


Regular Visits

Avoid relapse with regular visits.

After the investment of time needed on the first and second visits, many patients become concerned that every visit will be of equal length.

In a word: no. A typical visit may require just a few, highly-focused, minutes.

But don’t think the brevity of a regular visit lessens its value! With the groundwork laid, we can quickly size up what your spine and nervous system, adjust you and get you on your way.

Like a regular workout at the gym, each visit builds on the ones before. Miss a visit and we can lose the momentum necessary to make the needed changes.

We recognize your time is valuable. We do everything possible to run on time and minimize the impact on your busy life.
