... throughout his body ? What will the doctor do ? Will they accept his CT scans and x-rays ?
aa17; all of these clinics are different and it just depends on the doctor. They well get information from the referring doctor to see what all is going on. so really you have a wait and see But this doctor should be able to get records from just about any clinic he has been to decide on what to do. Good luck to him.
My two buddies gave you great advice.
My two cents :
You may want to gather any info you have at home to expedite service.
It takes awhile for them to get the info plus you need to sign authorization papers for release of records.
If you have info readily available, they may take on your case without all of the documentation.
Just a though...
A good doctor does not need a MRI . MRIs can be helpful but not required to make a diagnosis. Think about the fact that we practiced Medicine for years without MRIs being available. What you really need is the ability to give a good history of the problem .Try to write out the facts before you go and take them with you ( in case the referring doctors sent incomplete records).Try to take the address of any important doctors or hospitals that you have gone to during your pain journey to help the pain clinic get any records not available on line (by shared resources for patient's medical histories like EPIC). The doctor should be appreciative of you being helpful like that in case the records available on your first visit are incomplete . Best wishes !
