What To Expect the First Visit

What To Expect the First Visit

Starting a new journey

It is our goal to make your first visit to our office a pleasant experience.  Our office staff will answer any questions you may have prior to your visit.  We ask that you bring your completed New Patient Information, any recent lab work and any supplements and/or medications you are currently using.

During your consultation, the doctor will review your history and discuss with you our philosophical  approach to health. They will also ask you about your expectations and priorities for the work you will do together in restoring your health.

Depending on your needs, an adjustment may be needed during your visit. If this is necessary, the doctor will explain the technique as it is happening, so you are comfortable with the process.   Applied Kinesiology, also known as muscle testing, may be performed to help indicate where you need support and what diet/supplements may work best for you.

The doctor might find it necessary to order additional lab work, which may give us a better insight to your health needs. We have several labs we use and your options will be explained to you in detail.

Once we have gathered all of the necessary information, your doctor will discuss their thoughts on the development and progression of your health.  Your doctor will educate and instruct all wellness plans, so you may fully understand the philosophy of healing, and how the doctor intends to help you get back to the vibrant health you deserve.

We look forward to meeting and working with you on your path to healthful success.

"What our patients are saying"
  • I consider myself most privileged to have been under the watchful care of Dr. Jennifer Irvine and Dr. Roger Lyss since the spring of 2007. I had come to them at a critical time when I was experiencing what Dr. Jen so aptly referred to as “a healing crisis”. My weight was dangerously low and unable to eat most foods because of violent allergic reactions. I was literally wasting away. I know that without their intervention, I most likely would not have survived. Both have listened carefully, responded compassionately and guided me gently through critical years of recovery. I am most grateful for their commitment to even the most challenging patients. I believe Dr. Jen and Dr. Lyss to be God’s provision for me and I continue to be blessed by their practice, experiencing ever increasing strength and wellbeing and once again, I am able to enjoy being involved in life! Might I add that the Lyss Chiropractic support staff also graciously assists in making even the most difficult times most pleasant.

  • At the start of my senior year in high school, I fractured my skull. I had to stop everything. No sports and a late start to classes. For about two years I had been seeing different neurologists with no positive results. Eventually, things started to get worse during my sophomore year in college. With all the pain and migraines, I wasn’t able to concentrate, focus, or do anything without any pain. It started to look like I wasn’t going to finish my sophomore year. That’s when I found out about Dr. Lyss. After my first visit with him, I almost immediately started to feel better. There was a sense of relief and hope. And now, after just four visits, I have gotten back to running, doing my farm work, I can focus and simply do things without the fear of regretting it, due to pain. Dr. Lyss made me feel like family. He treats me like I’m his only patient (which I’m not) by spending a lot of time with me, not rushing things, being honest and just taking time to get to know me. The staff is super friendly and helpful. I am always looking forward to my visits there. I am so thankful to be a patient of Dr. Lyss’. He has changed my life for the better. I can finally say that I actually have my life back.

  • I strongly recommend Lyss Chiropractic. The entire staff is very professional, friendly and helpful. The doctors are very committed to providing high quality care to all of their patients. My family is extremely grateful for everything we have learned about health and wellness from both Dr. Lyss and Dr. Irvine and for the great care they have provided to all of us.

  • I started coming to Dr. Jen. I had been diagnosed with Lupus, Sjrogrens syndrome, auto immune, and cirrhosis of the liver and low thyroid. My joints were stiff and achy. Lots of knee and hip pain and a lot of digestive problems. With the manipulation and the supplements, I have improved and can do things that I couldn’t do before because I was too stiff and couldn’t walk much. I can now walk after Dr. Jen got my hips and knees in place. Digestion has greatly improved with enzyme supplements and eliminating gluten and sugar. I am 67 and feel better now than when I was 40.

  • After years of horseback riding, my body was screaming (neck and back). I finally went to a chiropractor and found the experience rough and the adjustments never holding. Then a friend recommended Dr. Jennifer Irvine. What a different experience! From the first adjustment everything was different. I felt like I had a new body and eight years later I’m still coming back a very happy patient.
