What should I expect from a visit to a DO?

The doctor will perform a complete history and physical, and order any X-rays or other diagnostic tests that may be necessary to help diagnose your condition. Once your problem is diagnosed, the doctor will develop a plan of treatment.

The first exam will take approximately 30 to 60 minutes. Follow-up appointments will last from 15 to 30 minutes.
