It is strongly recommended that you bring your imaging studies on either computer disc or the actual films to your appointment. Xray, MRI or CT reports is not enough we need the actual films. You must also bring with you your previous medical and surgical records. After checking in with the receptionist, you will be escorted to one of the exam rooms and we will review your medical history, current problems and imaging studies. At the completion of the examination you will have time to ask all your questions. At the end of the visit you will understand what is causing your pain and have a customized treatment plan based on the finding from your visit.

Although health insurance is designed to help you meet the cost of medical services, it seldom covers the entire cost. The primary responsibility for payment, therefore, rests with you. Your policy is a contract between you and your insurance company, not between your doctor and the insurance company. We will provide you with the necessary information and will assist you whenever possible. Some companies pay fixed allowances for certain procedures and others pay a percentage of the charge. It is your responsibility to pay any deductible amount, co-insurance or other balance not paid by your insurance company.
We accept most group health plans and are happy to file claims with your insurance company as a courtesy. Important note: Please remember to bring your insurance card and a photo ID with you to each appointment. If you don’t bring your insurance card, we will request payment in full for your visit. If you forget your photo ID, you may have to reschedule your appointment. Federal laws against identity theft now require us to verify our patients’ identity.
If you arrive more than 15 minutes late for your appointment, you may be asked to reschedule.
