What to Expect During Your First Orthopedic Services Visit 

During your first orthopedic appointment, your physician gathers your medical history. They speak to you about any symptoms you’re experiencing. Next, the orthopedist will take a series of X-rays, blood tests, and other examinations. These medical tests help the physician assess the current state of your physical health.

The specialist will conduct a lifestyle assessment. He or she will ask questions about your current activities, diet, and occupational duties. If necessary, the will doctor advise you to adjust activities that may aggravate your health condition. Your doctor will prescribe a treatment plan after assessing your injury.
