After collecting the appropriate information from you, we start with an exam and consult with one of our providers. Once they understand your concerns and have narrowed down the possibilities we typically start with a physical exam and imaging of the area of concern. Next we always offer some kind of modality to give some relief. We schedule the follow up visit asap so that we can get started. At that visit, we will explain the findings and review the imaging with you(this is a good time to have your spouse or partner with you). This should help you understand our team's findings and the recommendations for care. After discussion about the findings you get to decide how to proceed.
Our ideal new patient wants to get better and has great insurance. That last part can be deceiving. Insurance plans are by design, red tape and promises made but not always kept. Leave insurance out of it and you can expect great care at a fair price. Involve insurance plans and sometimes our patients are completely covered for all that we do and never have to pay us. That is not usually the case. We will verify your plan and coverage for you and let you know before any procedure or plan what it looks like with your plan so we generally know what will be your responsibility and what the insurance SAYS your plan should cover. That is not a guarantee that they will after all. We will fight for you to get every service that you are paying your insurance premiums to cover adjudicated but sometimes we will need your help in holding them to their part of their contracts and agreements.
