Frequently Asked Questions

Q.   Do you perform injections only or do you prescribe medications also?

We are a comprehensive pain practice and do both.

This depends on your insurance.  Many of our new patients do not require a referral.  If you call our office, we will work with your physicians and insurance to get you scheduled in a timely fashion.

 

Q.  Do I have to be seen in clinic before I can have a procedure done?

  No, your physician can refer you to us for an injection only.
