It varies: You should expect to fill out a multiple page questionnaire before seeing the physician. The physician will probably house a long conversation about your different pains in the qualities of your pains. The physical examination will follow. A treatment plan will be presented to you in the various parts of what the doctor is suggesting will be discussed. Previous treatments will also be discussed.
