Your First Visit

A typical initial encounter includes 60-90 minutes with me, during which our goals will be:

    1. To hear the full story of your health journey, your personal goals in health, and what we can do together to make them happen.
      • I want to hear what, how and when, and other details related to your concerns.
      • I need to know your past medical history, including any prior evaluations.
      • Old records are helpful, especially actual radiographs (xrays, MRIs, etc.), other diagnostic studies, and reports of procedures, including operative reports.
    2. To assess current health status with examination.
    3. To collaboratively develop a strategy aimed at wellness. We are looking for the ROOT causes of your issues.  This may require prioritizing, depending on the complexity of your concerns
      • Education is provided regarding current impressions and why.
      • You and I will discuss optional therapies and choices.
      • I may initiate further evaluations, if needed.
      • You and I will establish follow up plans.
      • You will have take-home educational materials on what you can do to help yourself right away.
    4. To start treatment of any pain concern, I generally begin with hands-on release of tension patterns through osteopathic manual therapies at the time of our first encounter.
    5. While Acupuncture is an optional tools for treatment,  due to time constraints, it is usually deferred until a later encounter, if desired.

Please wear or bring loose, comfortable clothing that allows movement and ready access for examination.

Testimonials

Trusting a doctor does not come easily to a guy who has had doctors misdiagnose him or recommend self-serving treatments, but I implicitly trust Dr. Fishburn. Her insight goes beyond the intellectual medical symptom analysis and diagnosis. You know with your heart that Dr. Fishburn has tuned into your body, mind and spirit. I feel gotten and understood … Healing requires letting go of old patterns of posture, belief, and life routine. She nurtures away your fear so that it is easier to take a leap you know needs to be done to move forward. Dr. Fishburn is very real, present, and wise about what I need for healing. Every encounter with Dr. Fishburn is a gift.
