Here's a few tips to help your first visit with us be as helpful, productive and easy as possible.
You’ll want to make sure you bring in your completed New Patient Paperwork which you will receive in the mail or can download here. We will also ask to see your driver’s license, insurance card and any pertinent imaging. We will go ahead and reach out to your prior physicians to get all of your updated chart notes before you arrive.
Your first appointment is a consultation. A chance for you to meet our staff, discuss your needs and wants, and to spend some time with our doctors seeking options to get you feeling better. They will review your past chart notes and imaging, perform an exam, and create a personalized treatment plan for your individual pain management needs.
Because we want to dedicate this time to getting to know you and designing a care plan, the consultation typically does not involve any injections. However, should the circumstances call for it and there is room on the schedule, this is a possibility.
As we are primarily an interventional pain clinic and, while we do sometimes utilize medications in conjunction with injections as a way of controlling pain, we do not typically prescribe medication as a sole means of treatment. However, we look at everyone’s case individually. We can address your questions at the time of your first visit.
