New Patients

We understand that arriving at a doctor’s 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.

At Wolstein Chiropractic our aim is to remove any stress that causes 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.

Insurances that we are currently accepting are: United Health Care PPO, Cigna PPO & Florida Blue PPO (Call for verification)

We can email/fax you the following forms, prior to your visit.


For your first appointment, you will have an initial consultation with Dr. Karen Wolstein & Dr. Theresa Stoakes. In this meeting, you will discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for the Doctors to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations. This knowledge helps determine how chiropractic care, along wih other treatments, can meet your goals.


After your consultation, Dr. Wolstein & Dr. Stoakes 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.

X-RAY Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we may order X-rays. X-rays alert us of any serious spinal conditions & help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify misalignments and degeneration themselves.

Report of Finding

Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Wolstein & Dr. Stoakes will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

  • 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 X-rays, Dr. Wolstein & Dr. Stoakes will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. The Doctors will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.


At the conclusion of your initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, electircal stimulation(e-stim), ultrasound, roller bed, stretching, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.

Wellness Program

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. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
