Goals

Manage pain and improve activities of daily living

 

 

Initial appointment

Your first appointment will last for about 60 minutes. Your physician will work with you to diagnose your problem and develop a treatment plan. No pain medications are initiated at the first visit. You may anticipate the following:
  • A complete examination in context with your complaints
  • Discussion of a plan to manage your pain, including the possibility of simply providing recommendations to your primary care provider.
  • Appropriate tests may be ordered or requested if they have been done in the past, but the report is not available.
