When you visit us, we will evaluate your pain or injury and provide consultation on the best plan for treatment. If X-rays are needed prior to your first appointment, we will help you arrange an appointment with Radiology to obtain these films beforehand.
At your first appointment, we will perform some testing and make an evaluation of your condition. We treat many conditions through non-surgical means. It is our philosophy that, whenever possible, you should first try non-surgical treatment options before considering surgery.
Note: Some health insurance policies require that you have a referral from your family doctor (primary care provider, or PCP) to make an appointment. Please review your health insurance coverage before calling for an appointment.
If you are a returning patient, you may use myD-H to communicate securely with your providers, request or change appointments, review your medical record, and more.
