Schedule permitting, you may be asked to wait or reschedule to a later appointment. Please note that late cancellations and/or no shows are subject to a fee.

Can I have my co-payment billed to me?

Copayment is due at the time of service.

What should I bring to my first appointment?

Please bring your insurance card, photo ID, copayment, medical records, and any radiology imaging you have had done (such as x-rays, CT, MRI). If possible, please print and fill out our new patient packet which is available on our website.

Can I get the new patient paperwork online?

Yes, we have all our patient paperwork on our website here.

Will I need to fill out paperwork at every appointment?

You will need to fill out a new patient packet for your first appointment only. However, you may be asked to update information at subsequent appointments or complete progress questionnaires.

Will I see my physician at every appointment?

At Las Vegas Spine & Pain Center, we implement a team approach to patient care. During your initial consult, you will see one of our physicians. However, at subsequent appointments you may be seen by a physician, physician assistant, or a nurse practitioner based on your plan of care which is evaluated after every visit.

Do I need to see my doctor to have my prescription refilled?

Some medications legally require being seen for a refill. Your physician will discuss this with you when they initially prescribe the medication. If your medication allows for refills without an appointment, you must call to request a refill 3-5 business days in advance to have your request processed.

Can I be seen at any of the three locations?

Patients are encouraged to continue care at the same location during their care, but if it is more convenient for the patient to move to a different location, accommodations can be made.

Is my insurance accepted?

Although insurance verifications are routinely done, it is ultimately the patient's responsibility to check with their insurance to verify coverage. You may also view the list of accepted insurance carriers above.

Procedure

What do I need to do to prepare for a procedure or injection?

Instructions are given to the patient upon scheduling the procedure in the office or over the phone.

Do I need to stop taking my usual medications?

Regular medications may be taken on a normal schedule prior to a procedure. If you are on any blood thinners, the physician will give you the appropriate instructions on when or if to stop.

How much time do I need to recover?

Every patient and procedure is different. For many, you may continue your normal routine the day after the procedure.

How many office visits will I need after my procedure?

Every patient will have at least one follow up after the procedure. It will then be decided on a patient by patient basis.

Do I need someone to drive me or can I drive myself home?

You must bring a driver to your procedure appointment.
