What to expect from Advanced Alternative Healthcare

Your First Visit
Enjoy the peaceful waiting-room at Advanced Alternative HealthcareWhen you arrive at AAH for your scheduled appointment, you can expect to find a peaceful atmosphere in our relaxing waiting room. You will be assisted by our friendly front-desk staff, who will help you fill out the necessary paperwork to register with our practice. You should plan to arrive at least twenty minutes before your appointment time so that there is adequate time to complete the paper work. If you like, you can also download and print the New Patient Intake form (you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader) fill it out, and bring it to your first visit.

Examination and Treatment
During your initial visit, Dr. Douglas will perform a full medical history and physical exam. He will also perform an osteopathic structural exam in which he will evaluate your neuromusculoskeletal system. Dr. Douglas will also perform Chinese tongue and pulse diagnosis to assist in diagnosis. After your initial evaluation, Dr. Douglas will discuss your diagnoses and potential treatment options. These treatment options include osteopathic manipulation, acupuncture, herbal therapy, conventional medication, dietary recommendations, hypnosis, exercises, physical therapy, and more. Together,  you and Dr. Douglas will develop an individualized treatment plan.

Subsequent Visits
Subsequent visits will begin with a reevaluation of your current problems and response to treatment. Another osteopathic physical exam will help Dr. Douglas determine further recommendations on tests or treatment options as your condition changes. Your treatment may include OMT, acupuncture, hydrotherapy massage, herbal and dietary supplements, depending on your treatment plan.
