Getting Ready for Your First Visit

We want you to feel prepared and empowered when you arrive at our offices. Here is some information to help you come with everything you need and some information about our facilities and services. 

Visit length

To make an appointment, you must first call Integrated Pain Solutions or fill out a contact form online. Once you set your appointment, we want to take time to ensure we have a thorough understanding of your medical background and any previous treatments. This means your first visit may take longer than you are expecting. Our staff and physicians want your information to be entered into our systems correctly so you are set up for success. Your physician will assess your previous treatment and imaging so that you can avoid wasting time with strategies that have not brought you results. It also means your treatment can get on track faster, which brings you closer to the relief you seek. 

Please make your best effort to arrive on time or shortly before the time set for your appointment at Integrated Pain Solutions. If you are late or miss your appointment, it may prevent you from seeing one of our physicians that day. We will reach out to help you reschedule a late or missed appointment, but please be aware that our policy has a limit for missed appointments. We work hard to respect our patients’ time so we can serve as many visitors as possible. 

What to bring

To avoid delays during your first visit, you will need to complete some paperwork and provide a few additional items. Be sure to bring the following: 

All of the documents mentioned can be found under Patient Forms. Here you can also find our telemedicine waiver, Opioid Agreement, and Patient Treatment Agreement. 

Insurance requirements

Insurance can be difficult to navigate, so we urge you to take a few steps before setting your first appointment. First, you can check our accepted insurance page to see if your provider is listed. However, this list may have changed, so you can always find out more by contacting our offices and contacting your insurance provider directly. This will help to clarify if your insurance is accepted, if treatment is covered, and if you may qualify for a payment plan option or financial aid.
