As with any doctor’s visit, you’ll start by finishing some new patient paperwork. The paper work is available on the website under the 1st Visit tab. Upon meeting with Dr. Staker, you’ll discuss your concerns and expectations as well as have the chance to ask any questions you may have.  The doctor will perform a physical examination including range of motion and orthopedic tests to determine what is causing your symptoms.  If Dr. Staker feels x-rays are necessary he will refer you the imaging facility of your choice and get the x-ray report the next day. Once the exam is complete, it will be determined if treatment at Susquehanna Spine and Joint is appropriate. If treatment is appropriate you will receive therapy immediately, if not you will be referred to a specialty that can help..
