How To Get Referred
One of your Doctors, a Physician Assistant, or a Family Nurse Practitioner must refer you to our office.
Here is the process:
- The “provider”, mentioned above, calls our office to initiate a consultation, test, or injection.
- We request your medical records from the referring doctor and possibly one or more of your other doctors.
- Doctor Jones then reviews your pertinent medical information and decides whether or not your problem is one we could help.
- Then you get a call from our staff to let you know what he decides. If we can help you, then we schedule the most appropriate type of appointment for your situation.
Here are some categories of patients we are not able to help:
- Patients whose primary issue is that they need a doctor to write their opioid (narcotic) medicine prescriptions.
- Patients whose primary pain problem is fibromyalgia.
- Patients with chest pain, abdominal pain, or pelvic pain who have not been through a thorough workup by appropriate specialists.
We are not:
- A walk-in clinic.
- A pain clinic per se, since we don’t have multiple injecting doctors, a pain psychologist on staff, or physicians assistants seeing patients every month to write medicine prescriptions.
- Specialists in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and Interventional Pain Management.
We must have referrals by the above-mentioned providers because we accept many insurances, and most of the time a referral is required for insurance payments.
We hope we can help you at Jones Center for Pain Management.
