What happens at the pain center?

First you will be seen by a registered nurse and a physician who specialize in pain management. They will review your medical history and evaluate your problem. Depending on your situation, your evaluation may include laboratory and radiological testing, and/or behavioral assessment. The doctor will then offer a treatment plan based on the assessment.

 

Will I be treated on the first visit?

 An evaluation will be done on the first visit. You may or may not be treated at this time. Treatment is determined on a case-by-case basis after your initial evaluation by the physician.  Notable exceptions include workers compensation cases and treatments that must be performed in the operating room or radiology suite.
