Results of Tests
Your second visit usually begins with the results of your tests. Dr. Paul Bruce will personally take the time to review your test results and discuss his findings in plain, easy to understand terms. Here, he will answer some very important questions:
- Can you help me?
- What do you recommend that I do to get better?
After discussing with you your history and your goals, and reviewing any x-rays or tests, Dr. Paul Bruce will discuss treatment recommendations with you. If you have a condition that requires care with other providers, the doctor will tell you at this time. If Dr. Paul Bruce believes we can help you, we will recommend a personalized treatment and wellness program.
