Frequently Asked Questions:

What kinds of insurance do you accept?
We accept many insurance plans, as well as, worker’s compensation.  Please contact your insurance company to verify our participation with your plan.  Benefits and coverage will need to be verified prior to the first office visit.  Please contact our office if you have questions about your particular insurance plan.

Do you accept “self-pay” patients?
We do not currently accept “cash pay” or “self pay” patients.

How can I schedule an appointment?
Our office requires a referral from the physician currently treating you.  Your physician’s office will need to complete a Referral Form (located on the Forms page) and fax it to our office, along with a copy of your insurance card (front and back), any imaging reports (CT, MRI, X-ray) and the last 3 office notes.  The referral will be reviewed to determine if your symptoms are within our treatment protocol guidelines.  Once we receive the required referral information and verified coverage, our office will contact you to schedule.

Do you accept Worker’s Compensation?
In some cases, we can accept Worker’s Compensation cases.  The same referral process is required (as listed above).  Verification of coverage will need to be confirmed with your case worker prior to scheduling an appointment.

What should I bring to my first visit?
Once your first appointment has been scheduled, please print and complete a New Patient Form (located on the Forms page).  The New Patient Forms will need to be completed prior to your visit.  Bring the forms with you to your appointment, along with your insurance card, co-pay and a state-issued ID.  It is advisable to arrive 15 minutes early for every appointment.

Are you a “pain management” clinic?
No.  We are not a pain management clinic.  We specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of neurologically related processes such as injuries/trauma, diseases, infections, inflammation, and degeneration.  Additionally, we diagnose and treat common entities such as migraine headaches, herniated or bulging discs, limited mobility, muscle spasms, and radicular symptoms.  Many of these processes have pain associated with them and therefore we can help manage the acute pain symptoms.  If after treating the patient and their symptoms, there is a need for chronic pain management, we will arrange appropriate long term treatment for such with a pain specialist.
