Your First Visit

Welcome, and thank you for choosing National Spine & Pain Centers!

We understand that you have probably seen a number of other physicians and specialists before coming to us. So, we want to make your healthcare experience as smooth as possible.

Upon scheduling your first visit with us, our representatives will inform you to bring certain items to your first visit. These include:

  • Picture ID
  • Insurance card
  • Referral from your primary care physician, if applicable
  • New Patient Forms: In order to reduce wait time at your first appointment, we ask that you have these forms completed prior to coming to your first appointment. We will email you these forms or you may click to download here: New Patient Forms
  • If you have any imaging results from an X-ray or MRI, please bring in a disk, the films, and/or the written results report
  • If coming in for a procedure, you will need to have a driver that can take you home. We will also provide you additional pre-procedure instructions.

We will send you a new patient packet that contains several important policy documents. You may also download these documents here. This packet includes:

  • Notice of Our Privacy Practices: The safeguarding of your health information is part of all our practices. We want you to understand a little about the measures we’ve put in place and what type of disclosures are permissible under the law – Click here to download now >>
  • Advance Medical Directives: Documents such as a living will or a durable power of attorney are ways that you can make decisions or have others make decisions for you when you are no longer capable of expressing your medical wishes – Click here to download now >>

Even if you are currently on medication for your pain condition, there is no guarantee the physician will keep you on that medication. The physician will perform a complete assessment to determine your best treatment option.
