How long will it take to get my patient seen?
We usually can see urgent cases same day as we maintain open appointments daily for urgent cases. For non-urgent cases, we are currently booking about 1-3 weeks out, depending on the provider requested. We often can see non-urgent patients within 72 hours if there is flexibility on the treating provider.
Who will see my patient in clinic?
We will honor all requests by referring providers. However, if appropriate, we recommend that new patients are assessed by one of our advanced practice providers who can determine if imaging is needed and make referrals for conservative treatment, including physical therapy and spinal injections. APPs also will triage the patient to the appropriate provider, which may include one of our physiatrists or a surgeon who subspecializes in a specific condition.
What insurances do you accept?
