Welcome to the Tarpon Total Health Care’s New Patient Center!
We understand that arriving at a doctors office for the first time can be nerve racking. Filling out paperwork, learning new faces and names, and getting to know your way around the office can be an overwhelming experience.
That’s why at Tarpon Total Health Care our aim is to remove any stressor causing unnecessary tension and to make you feel comfortable. In this area of the website you will be able to take care of items necessary for your visit prior to arriving, in the comfort of your own home.
Below is what you can expect on your first visit at Tarpon Total Healthcare.
Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center before seeing the Chiropractor. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.

Next, you will have a consultation with Dr.John Huy to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Huy to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine if you will be accepted as a patient for Chiropractic care.
After your consultation, Dr. Huy will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays and Digital Motion X-rays as well. This imaging will help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their mis-alignments and degeneration themselves.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Huy will give you a detailed report of all findings before beginning care and answer all of your questions, some of which usually includes:
- What is wrong with me?
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Huy will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. He will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs. Click here for information regarding all of your payment options.
At the conclusion of this appointment, you can experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments performed by hand or with the aid of an instrument, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express feedback about the different styles of treatment anytime. Together we will develop the most effect treatments for you.
Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches.
If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan.
Dr. Huy is a specialist in nutrition and therefore all patients benefit from his expertise in this discipline. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal hygiene, have a health buidling diet, exercise consistently and without pain, and maintain a positive mental state. At Tarpon Total Health Care, your total health is our primary concern.
