Q: Do the doctors only give injections or do they prescribe medications as well?

A: Both; we are a comprehensive clinic. You should be willing to do the injections if the doctor feels it will help you with your pain. We do not rely on only medication therapy.

Q: Do I need a referral from my primary care physician to be seen?

A: Yes and no; all new patients require a referral form completed, either filled out by yourself or by your primary care physician. However, only prospective patients who are referred by their primary care physicians will be considered for opiate medication management. Self-referred patients will not be eligible for opiate management. Our referral form is located under the “For Physicians" tab. Upon receiving this form and your records, we will contact you directly to schedule our soonest available appointment.

Q: What forms of payment do you accept?

A: We accept cash, checks, Master Card, Visa, and Discover. We do not accept American Express. Your first visit MUST be paid with cash or card only; no checks.

Q: Will I get the same medicine that my current doctor prescribes?

A: We cannot guarantee any specific medications. Our doctors are trained to give you the best treatment and will prescribe the medication(s) they believe will help treat the source of your pain.

Q: Do I need to fast for an injection?

A: No, it is not necessary to fast for any of our injections as we do not use IV sedation.

Q: Do I need a driver when I have injections?

A: Yes

Q: How long does my first visit last?

A: Typically the doctor will be with you about 30 minutes on your first visit. Please arrive at least 20 minutes early to complete all necessary paper work and assist us in keeping your appointment on schedule.

Q: Will I see a doctor on my first visit?

A: Yes, on your first visit you will see the doctor and receive treatment.

Q: Can I be seen in Corbin on my first visit?

A: Your first visit will have to be at our Lexington location due to the limited time the doctor is in Corbin. Your follow ups may be in the Corbin office if you choose.
