First Visit

We believe your first visit to Ozark Wellness Practice will be encouraging and helpful. We take the time to listen to your questions and concerns, so that we can offer you a comprehensive wellness analysis and holistic health plan. We will explain what we do, and tell you about the treatment options we offer. Please set aside about an hour for your first appointment. Here's a brief overview of what to expect:

Brief Paperwork

Upon entering the office, you will have some brief paperwork to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about you and your condition.


Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the patient educator to discuss your health-related problems and concerns, and to explain the alternative health treatment options that we offer.

History and Examination

In order to get to the root of your health issue(s), Dr. Tim Rhoads will ask you various questions related to your condition, and perform a number of specialized tests to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent. He may also ask for health history information, etc.

X-ray Studies

Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or to assist us in developing the most effective holistic treatment plan for you.

Schedule Your Next Appointment

You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings at that second visit. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed at that time, and you may receive your first chiropractic adjustment on the second visit.
