Your Initial Office Visit
Your initial visit with Dr. Patrick Tyrance, Jr. will consist of a comprehensive examination and evaluation of your orthopedic problem and symptoms. At this time, if necessary, you may also have X-rays depending on the nature of your problem.
Dr. Tyrance will review your medical history and discuss your injury or problem at length, gathering facts and details to help with the diagnosis, and then perform a thorough examination. He will than explain his findings and, if necessary, make recommendations for any other diagnostic testing. Once a diagnosis is established, he will discuss your treatment options and address your questions and concerns.
