FAQs – You Asked, We Answered
What will happen during my visit?
To confirm his initial diagnosis, Dr. Baldinger may order X-rays, an MRI, or blood work. This is where he often discovers underlying medical or biomechanical problems that have never been diagnosed. With the correct diagnosis in hand, Dr. Baldinger will create your treatment plan. He will lay out your options in a way that you can understand, ask questions, and be an active partner in your care.
You will benefit from the doctor’s 30 years of clinical experience combined with the patience and understanding of the entire practice.
