two patient consulting their doctor

  1. In general, your physician will refer you to the pain clinic. Once we have insurance authorization (depending on your health plan), then a consultation will be scheduled.
  2. Please bring your insurance information with you.
  3. Please complete the New Patient Packet and bring it with you to the consultation. The questionnaire can be faxed to you, mailed to you, or downloaded from this website. Completing the questionnaire is extremely important. Please answer to the best of your ability and recollection. We do not expect that every question be answered. However, not completing the questionnaire will only delay your office visit and may cause your visit to be rescheduled. Even though you may have completed this information with another specialist or your primary care physician, we do not always have access to that information.
  4. We will ask your referring physician for pertinent copies of your medical records.
  5. The initial consult typically takes thirty minutes after registration is complete. A treatment plan will be discussed. If a procedure is recommended, then we will obtain authorization (depending on your health plan) and schedule the procedure at the surgery center or at our surgery suite in our office. Some insurances do not cover procedures on the same day as the consult.
