When we receive a referral, we will contact you to schedule your appointment. Our scheduler will collect relevant clinical information such as clinic notes and diagnostic testing results. The scheduler will then complete a brief questionnaire over the phone and set an appointment for you with a non-surgical physician (physiatrist specializing in spine or anesthesiologist specializing in spine pain management). If you have imaging that you are providing us prior to your appointment, one of our intake nurses will review your information, including imaging, to confirm that you have been placed with the best provider for your current situation. If the nurse determines that your imaging indicates you need an advanced provider, such as a surgeon, they will adjust your appointment to place you with the appropriate provider based on that determination. This triage process helps us to ensure that you are immediately placed with the best physician for your current back and spine situation.
What increases or decreases your back and neck discomfort?
Is your back or neck pain better or worse in the morning or evening?
Through this process, we’re able to better understand your individual symptoms and assess which of our physicians would be best to conduct your physical examination.
Why settle for a single doctor when you can have a team of spine experts? Our unique approach to diagnosis and treatment ensures you get multiple point-of-views, especially in complex cases.
