Working Together to Fight Your Pain
Our medical team works together to bring the patient the highest level of care possible. When you visit you will be greeted by a medical assistant, who will gather critical medical information such as your pulse, temperature, medication information, and any medical concerns you have. The medical assistant will pass this information to your physician assistant or nurse practitioner who will then evaluate you.
The nurse practitioner or physician assistant will consult with you on your specific pain condition, perform a physical examination, gather additional medical information, educate you on your diagnosis and treatment options, and answer any questions you have.
After the consultation, they will inform your physician and relay the necessary information for the physician to evaluate your personal medical case. Your physician will review, oversee, and approve your individualized treatment plan to be carried out during future office visits.
If you are a candidate for a procedure, the physician will perform that procedure in the surgery center on your appointed date. Depending upon the clinic location, you could be treated by an MD or a DO.
Rest assured, every physician at Arizona Pain adheres to the highest of standards; each is fellowship trained and double board-certified.
A successful medical team often works as though in a relay race, passing crucial information on to the next team member. By utilizing the medical expertise of multiple individuals, you can receive the highest level of care possible.
