The first step to understanding your pain condition and getting the right treatment is scheduling a new patient consultation. Ask your general practitioner for a referral or simply call our office to get scheduled.
The consultation is an opportunity to share your story, understand your pain condition, and discuss possible treatment options with your doctor. You’ll leave with a clearer understanding of what’s causing your pain and how to treat it.
We’ll develop a personalized treatment plan, monitor your progress, and adjust your care as needed so you can get back to living a happy and pain-free life.

No. We accept most insurances and our payment rates are based upon their determination of reasonable value for the services we perform on your behalf. Because we know that healthcare can be expensive, we try hard to make our patients aware of their out-of-pocket financial responsibility prior to performing the service(s).
During your first visit you will meet with one of our Providers who will perform a comprehensive review of your medical history and perform a physical examination. We will also review any pertinent imaging studies and outside medical records. The Provider will work with you to tailor an individualized treatment plan for your condition and oftentimes order additional testing and therapies.
Most PPO-type insurance plans and Medicare generally do not require referrals. The majority of AHCCS plans do require a referral and our team can help you obtain one from your primary care provider.
