How do I become a patient of Specialty Spine & Pain?
Patients are seen by request of a referring physician. Self-referrals are considered on a case-by-case basis.
Do you accept my insurance?
Specialty Spine & Pain accepts most major commercial insurance plans and Medicare. The physicians at Specialty Spine & Pain are not Medicaid providers. To find out if your plan is covered you may call our office at (770) 297-7277 or contact us.
Do you accept worker compensation claims?
Yes, provided the appropriate referrals and pre-certification process has been approved.
Will I see one pain physician or can I rotate providers in the group?
You will have one primary physician that will evaluate you on your first visit and perform any necessary procedures. You may be seen by the doctor or their team of mid-level providers at your follow up office visits.
Will you fill out my disability paperwork?
No, our physicians will not fill out Social Security disability paperwork. Our philosophy is to offer treatment that allows patients to be functional and maintain gainful employment.
Are your procedures successful?
The injection therapies are targeted towards a specific structure for two purposes: To obtain a diagnosis or to prove if that structure is the cause of a patient’s pain, and to provide pain relief. The level of success varies from patient to patient based on each specific condition. Our procedures, at minimum, provide diagnostic relief to indicate that the particular target structure is the pain generator. The medicines injected are intended to help relieve and heal tissues through decreasing inflammation. The length of pain relief achieved can vary from several hours to many years.
