New Patient

Information and Forms

We welcome people to experience health care from a different point of view. No matter your current health concerns or status, I believe we can work in partnership to activate your inner healing response and improve your function and performance naturally. 

 

Our purpose is to perform our care together using the highest ethics, integrity, and professional standards, never ceasing to improve my services at every level.

If this is your first visit to Park County Chiropractic, the first step in this process is completing the New Patient Intake Form, which can be done in the comfort of your home by downloading and printing this form from the New Patient Forms area below

If you need to make an appointment call 406.222.9373 and speak with reception. They will help find a day and time for an appointment that fits into your schedule.

For your first visit, we ask the following:

  • Arrive on time. We want to ensure enough time to address your concerns, preform an examination and evaluate the problem, and if appropriate, provide treatment. So that the highest quality care is given to you, we reserve the right to reschedule the appointment if you are more than 15 minutes late.

  • When applicable, please bring copies of previous tests like x-rays or MRI reports, blood work, hormone panels, etc.

  • Wear comfortable and loose clothing as your care might require some active movement. Dr Dobelbower or Dr Raney may need access to your shoulders, knees, neck, etc. If the appointment is for an infant, dress them in an easy to remove onesie or outfit.

  • Come focused on health and recovery and our journey together. We request that you turn off your phone ringer, bring questions to your appointment, and be ready to talk honestly with Dr Dobelbower and Dr Raney about your overall health.  

We look forward to being your partner in health!

Other Questions You May Have

Do you work with my Insurance?


We are happy to fill out claim forms and send them to your Major Medical insurance company. However, we do not participate in any provider network. We require you to pay after services have been provided each session. Your insurance company will reimbruse you directly under your out of network policy. We are happy to help you understand your chiropractic benefits or answer questions about your out of network benefits when possible. ***We do accept Medicare and Healthy Montana Kids policies. Personal Injury, Auto accident, and Workers' Compensation claims are accepted on a by case bases.***




Do you take Medicare? What about Healthy Montana Kids? And Medicaid?


  • We accept payment from Medicare and Medicare Supplemental policies. Please understand you may be responsible for deductible, co-payment, and non-covered services provided to you after the treatment is performed that day. Medicare does not cover every treatment that could be necessary for your care. We make every effort to provide the highest quality care without breaking the bank.
  • Healthy Montana Kids policies vary and you may be responsible for a co-pay or be responible to pay for non-covered services provided to your child after the treatment provided that day. Again we make every effort to provide the highest quality care without breaking the bank.
  • Medicaid for Adults in Montana does not provide coverage for adults. However, if care is for a child under Healthy Montana Kids policy see above.




How long will my appointment take?


  • An initial Chiropractic and/or Rehabilition appointment will take between 1 hour to 1.5 hours for teens and adults. Infants and children under 10 take approxiately 45 minutes.
  • Initial Nutritional Consultations will take approxiately 1.5 hours for adults and 45 minutes to 1 hours for children.
  • Follow up appointments for Chiropractic are between 15 - 30 minutes.
  • Nutritional follow-up will be approximately 30 minutes.
  • Rehabilitation or Performance follow-up will be approximately 30 minutes.
  • Combination appointments for Chiropractic and Rehab/Performance or Chiropractic and Nutritional will be approxiately 45 minutes to and 1 hour and 15 minutes.
We will always try to be on time, but taking care of people is not always an exact science. Please be patient if we are running behind. If you must be elsewhere, let Kathi or Meagan know and they will do their best to reschedule you to another day or time.




Do I have to keep coming after I feel better?


That is up to you. Chiropractic, nutritional, and functional care provide ways to help you not only feel better after an injury or when you are in pain, they can help improve daily function, increase physical performance, provide illness support, can be part of a preventive stratagy that can build and maintain your overall health for a more rubust lifestyle. Dr Dobelbower and Dr Raney will recommend a course of care regarding your current function or problems. When you are feeling better and your body has gained the functional improvement that it needs, he may recommend a follow up in a few weeks to ensure that you not just feeling better, you are maintaining that function. Additional therapy can be discussed with Dr Dobelbower or Dr Raney and a plan that best fits your needs can be implemented. That is always up to you. We want to work with people who want to work with us!




Will I need x-rays? Or an MRI?


That depends. If during your examination and evaluation Dr Dobelbower finds a reason for any type of imaging, he will discuss the findings with you and order the correct imaging for your problem. Dr Dobelbower does not routinely x-ray or require MRI's on every patient and will only recommend them when truely necessary. If you have had x-rays, MRI, CT, or other imaging done in the last year that pertains to the care you are receiving, please let Kathi or Meagan know when you are scheduling your appointment. They can request that information be sent directly to Dr Dobelbower. If you already have a copy, please bring it with you to your appointment.




I only have pain in my _____, can I skip all the exam and stuff?


Simple answer is no. While you may have experienced a similar problem in the past or you are feeling pain in a particular spot, Dr Dobelbower and Dr Raney will never perform an adjustment without knowing the actual reason you are experiencing the pain or problem. The body has many inter-connections. For instance:

  • Neck pain can really be a problem in your low back.
  • A foot problem could really be coming from a dysfunction in your gluteal musculature.
Quick fixes done without the proper skill, knowledge and care can be at best ineffective and at worst dangerous. It is best to let Dr Dobelbower or Dr Raney determine the root cause so they can provide safe and the most appropriate treatment.

Does Dr Dobelbower work with Sports and Performance Patients?


Absolutely! Dr Dobelbower is currently certified in SFMA and working towards his Rehab to Performance certification...and he loves helping all of us be better at whatever movement and athletics we want to do. From Ballerinas to Baseball players, Dr Dobelbower focuses on fundamental movement patterns and looks to improve your performance no matter what age or stage of ability you are in. There is always something we want to be better at! We also provide sport physicals for our young athletes including a Functional Movement Screen. A Functional Movement Screen gives Dr Dobelbower a baseline should a young athlete have an injury or problem taking them out of play. A follow up screen can help determine when the athlete is ready to return to sport safely.




What is the Reschedule Policy?


Your appointment is scheduled specifically for you! When you reschedule with late notice, not only are you missing out, other people are too. So that we can take especially good care of everyone, be sure to give 24 hours notice when you need to reschedule an appointment.
