Our goal is to aid in stabilizing your patient by recommending or providing appropriate treatment with the expectation that long-term care (including medications) will be continued by the primary care physician. We will remain available for consultation as needed but we do not provide long-term medication management for patients.
Patients will be evaluated by our interdisciplinary team as dictated by their needs and treatment recommendations developed.
- Patients that are evaluated on a consultation basis will have recommendations for future treatment made to you and the patient.
- Patients who continue treatment at the Pain Management Center will have a treatment planning visit to discuss the recommendations followed by initiation of indicated therapies, procedures and medications.
Opioids are not prescribed during our evaluation phase or for patients seen on a consultation basis.
Patients referred for a procedure only will be evaluated by the pain physician for consideration of interventional options. If full interdisciplinary evaluation is warranted this will be arranged in the future.
