Office Visits

Unlike most pain management facilities that often have long wait periods to obtain an appointment, we work very hard to get our patients in quickly to begin treatment. Because we are a referral-based practice, your first appointment will be made by the referring physician. We encourage you to schedule your follow-up appointment with each visit to ensure you can get a time-appropriate appointment for your treatment plan and so that we can maintain a continuity of care.

We will be calling to remind you of your appointment 24 hours in advance. Out of respect for all of our patients, we ask that if you cannot keep your appointment, you cancel at least 48 hours in advance. This allows us to treat other patients in need.
