What can I expect when I come to Meadville Pain Management?
You can expect a warm welcome. Your care is our top priority and to get you established with our practice, you will first be evaluated by one of our physician assistants. This evaluation will include a thorough examination and discussion including your past medical history, pain history, and treatments prior to coming to Meadville Pain Management. Prior diagnostic studies will be reviewed. The physician assistants work very closely with Dr. Fallin to ensure your treatment plan fits your individual needs.
What should I expect if I am given an injection?
Spinal injection is a minimally invasive therapy with rapid recovery. You are usually able to resume normal activities the day of your injection. Our clinical staff works closely with each patient to coordinate care that meets your individual medical needs.
Do I need a physician referral?
Yes. Meadville Pain Management requires a patient be referred by another physician, so we may coordinate your care and give you the best treatment possible.
Will my insurance cover my treatment?
It is highly recommended that you check with your insurance to see what your plan covers. Meadville Pain Management is a subsidiary of Meadville Medical Center, so it is contracted with most of the same insurance carriers. Because of our relationship with the Hospital, two bills will be generated by your visit. One is for the professional services of the physician and the other is a facility charge from the hospital.
What will I need to bring with me to my initial appointment?
You will need your current insurance card, current driver’s license, and the papers that you have filled out from your new patient packet you receive in the mail. You will also need any medical records or CD’s you were given to bring with you by your referring physician.
