The Overlooked Diagnosis.
Step 1: Dr. Goldman will ask
you to complete a detailed questionnaire about your health
history, symptoms, past treatments, etc.
Step 2: Dr. Goldman will take
high quality panoral x-ray using the state-of-the-art CommCat
Step 3: Dr. Goldman will meet
with you one-on-one in a non-hurried atmosphere and do a very
thorough comprehensive history so you can describe your situation,
symptoms as well as your prior treatments, if any.
Step 4: Dr. Goldman will perform
a thorough physical exam to assess jaw movement and jaw sounds,
the way in which the teeth fit together, and any spasms in
the head and neck muscles as well as dental damage that was
done by this problem.
Step 5: Dr. Goldman will thoroughly discuss
his findings and present his treatment recommendations.
Step 6: Once you agree to the
treatment plan, Dr. Goldman will perform additional Tomographic
x-rays to visualize unseen abnormalities, within the jaw joint itself, which might interfere with the prescribed treatment. If these x-rays show no interfering findings, Dr Goldman will begin the specific treatment, that he has designed uniquely for you, based on his forty years of research, development and experience.
Patients usually start responding to treatment within 4 weeks.
Dr. Goldman does not like to surprise his patients.
After the examination, if he feels that he can help you, you
will be given an estimate of the fees involved.
