We do not treat Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue, Lyme Disease, and Spinal Degenerative Disc Disease. These non-inflammatory conditions require a multi-disciplinary approach and are best managed by a team of specialists comprised of Pain Management Physicians, Physical Therapists, and Primary Care Physicians. In cases where we recommend Pain Management after evaluation or receive your referral for one of these diseases, we will refer you to our trusted partners, experts in Pain Management.
If your PCP refers you to Rheumatology for one of these non-inflammatory conditions, we will forward your review to our Pain Management partners, who will contact you to schedule. Pain Management will be able to evaluate patients within one week, whereas the wait to be evaluated by Rheumatology may be 4+ months. Suppose our Pain Management partners evaluate you and feel strongly that Rheumatology evaluation is necessary. In that case, they will expedite your referral with our practice so we can see you in a shorter timeframe.
