Physicians refer patients to Anesthesiology & Pain Consultants because of the excellence and care we provide their patients. As board certified and fellowship-trained pain management specialists, referring physicians should know that we will treat their patients in the same way we would treat members of our own family. In the past, referring a patient to a pain management practice was viewed as a destination of last resort, when all other avenues had been explored or tried, and through frustration and best efforts, nothing else could be offered by the primary or surgical team. But with the therapies that we have available today, that phone call should be made much sooner to avail our services to their patients. The reality is that the longer some of the chronic conditions go without being adequately addressed, the more difficult they are to reverse. Our specialty is constantly changing and an important part of our job is to make sure our referring physicians are as up-to-date as we are regarding breakthroughs in treatment techniques, improvements in the devices we use, and the medications we prescribe. In fact, many of today’s medications have been modified or improved which allows our patients to take much smaller doses and still receive the pain relief they need. These advances also help us maintain our strict standards regarding patient medication management. Referring physicians in the community can count on Anesthesiology & Pain Consultants to create a comprehensive, professional evaluation and provide timely feedback on each patient’s plan of care. We’ll walk hand-in-hand with your patients through a wide variety of medications, adjuvant therapies, and interventional techniques. We can’t promise everyone 100% pain relief, but we should be able to make life better, restore functionality and a quality of life that they did not enjoy before entering our practice. If you are a physician and have a patient or patients that are in chronic pain, please give us a call at Anesthesiology & Pain Consultants.
