Dr. Laseter, Dr Clemson, and Office Manager Christine are here to help each patient feel comfortable and have the best possible experience while in our office.
We have recently made some procedural changes for in-office visits. All of these changes are found on this page, as well as additional relevant information.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call our office at 717.394.2071
Expect At Your First Appointment
You can expect your treatment to last between 20-25 minutes. Children require less time: their treatments usually take 15-20 minutes. At some point your treatment may require 30-45 minutes or more. You won’t be asked to pay more unless it becomes a recurrent issue. However, if it takes less than the expected amount of time to treat you or your child, you will be charged less. Understand that sometimes, the time is better spent discussing your problems or providing detailed guidance in exercises, medical testing, counseling, referrals, and so on.
Preparing for Your Appointment
We want you to have a great experience when you come to our office, so, please consider the following to receive maximum benefit:
Carefully review your problems and briefly summarize them in writing. This is the most important element you can bring to our encounter
Dress in loose-fitting, casual attire. Bring sweatpants or shorts and a t-shirt. Try to avoid dresses, lycra/spandex, and thick or textured fabrics
Avoid being either too full or too hungry for your treatment. Try not to eat right away after the treatment, but do drink plenty of water the day of your appointment
Avoid strenuous or unusual activity after your treatment. Heavy lifting, bending or reaching can disturb the corrections. Take care with posture, prolonged sitting, and hot baths. Conserve your energy.
Do not receive massage, physical therapy or chiropractic treatments around the time of your treatment, without consulting with the doctor first. Medical and osteopathic care, physical therapy, chiropractic, massage, and exercise require coordination
Get a good night’s rest the night before and the night of your appointment. You may become very tired, achy or sore the evening of the treatment. This may persist a few days so take care not to overdo it after your treatment
Discuss any significant travel plans or other medical care that might coincide with your appointments
Please plan a full hour for your appointments with us. We take the time to look at your situation in depth. Time is required for check-in and scheduling and payments. Sometimes patients require extra time or are late. We do our best to stay on time and appreciate your forbearance.
EFFECTIVE TUESDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2022: MASKS ARE NO LONGER REQUIRED. YOU MAY REQUEST PHYSICIANS AND STAFF WEAR A MASK FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT.
If you or a member of your household is experiencing any fever, cough, or respiratory issue, we ask that you please call our office at 717-394-2071. You will be asked specific questions regarding your symptoms to determine if we will be able to see you.
Please refrain from bringing multiple people with you for your visit, as we are limiting the number people in our waiting room.
Patients will be taken back to the treatment room immediately after arrival whenever possible.
Please NO FOOD or EATING in our office at this time.
Patients who have tested POSITIVE for Covid-19, or are awaiting results of a Covid-19 test, will not be able to be seen. Please call our office to reschedule your appointment.
Our Office is equipped with HEPA air filters in our waiting areas and each treatment room. We thoroughly clean and sanitize each treatment room after each patient, per CDC recommendations, and with a CDC approved cleaner.
New Patient Forms
You will be asked to fill out medical history forms and other patient information forms at your first visit. If you wish to expedite your check-in, you can you can print and complete these forms and bring them with you to your first visit. Click on the title of each form to download a PDF file.
Additional Office Policies
CELL PHONE USE
We request that patients refrain from cell phone use in the office. If you must use your cell phone, you can step outside where you will not disturb other patients.
So that you may receive the best treatment possible, you may want to arrange childcare for babies and young children who might have difficulty being patient while their parent is being cared for. Young children and babies in the treatment room can prevent parents from receiving effective care. Experience has shown that osteopathic care requires the patients’ full attention during the procedures. Our staff are happy to help watch your child or baby if you cannot arrange babysitting!
