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"
  • By coming to Dr. Lyss, and learning from his knowledge and experience, I have gained so much. Without his guidance, I never would have realized there were so many factors that can contribute to overall health. He looks at the total body and not just a specific symptom to determine why a body reacts the way it does to different life situations. My daughter had so many things going on with her little body from a young age. Dr. Lyss was quickly and easily able to determine that the root of her problems was a weak hypothalamus. As soon as we started to support that organ, her whole world began to change for the better.

  • 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 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.

  • A friend recommended Dr. Lyss to me at a time when I was having what I thought were gall bladder attacks. Because of the diagnostic capabilities of the computron and Dr. Lyss’ experience with it, I found that the pain was actually due to inflammation of the bile duct and was soon free of it. That was the beginning of many years of a life giving health relationship with Lyss Chiropractic Center. I have been healed of rheumatoid arthritis, migraine headaches and auras. I have experienced improved liver function. Dr. Lyss also has educated and equipped me to take charge of my health as well as demonstrated adjustment techniques. In times of health emergencies, I have always found Dr. Lyss faithful to respond and guide. He has spent countless hours during our one-to-two hour appointment sessions formulating my unique health profile and needs. I remain forever grateful to have Lyss Chiropractic partnering with me for optimum life choices.

  • Dr. Jen is an amazing doctor! From the moment you walk into the room she makes you feel comfortable, listens to you, and she truly cares about you and making you feel better. Our whole family sees her, including my 5-year-old and little baby. I don’t know what we would do without her! We are so thankful to have her in our life!
