A patient who is injured should not delay seeking medical care. You can expect to be in contact with a medical provider’s office to schedule an appointment within 24 hours.
We understand that to provide the best experience and patient care, one must feel comfortable with all of their medical providers. Providers who actually care and are not just treating you as a “number”.
No patient should ever feel that recommended diagnostic testing to further evaluate their injuries such as an MRI scan (which has no ionizing radiation) should be “approved” by anyone. If a MRI is medically necessary you will not be waiting around for weeks or months to get one!
Your primary treating physician will refer you out to other providers as medically necessary and in a timely manner. Those injured often need providers beyond conservative treaters such as Neurologists, Orthopedic surgeons, and Neurologists to name a few. Remember, it’s all about patient care, our #1 priority!
We are a quickly growing National Network of medical lien providers in Personal Injury.
“Soft tissue injuries” are often very serious, and can leave patients in pain for months, years, and often lead to life-changing chronic pain for an indefinite length of time.
MRI studies if indicated by the mechanism of injury (whiplash-trauma, T-bone trauma, etc.),property damage (from minor impact cases to the major visible ones), current health status (“eggshell” condition at time of trauma), and veracity of the patient are absolutely essential in determining the extent of injuries.
Patients should be referred to the appropriate specialists as medically indicated (pain intervention physicians, orthopedic surgeons, neurologists, neuropsychologists, etc.).
