Frequently Asked Questions
Most insurances provide coverage for pain management treatment. Please contact us for more information.
At your initial visit, you will be evaluated by a Double Board-Certified Pain Management Physician. You will be asked questions about your medical history and a thorough physical exam will be performed to evaluate your areas of pain. Please bring all available imaging results and medical records to your visit for review. In addition, please make sure to bring all your medication bottles, insurance card and driver’s license.
All pain medications should only be prescribed by a New Mexico Pain Center physician. Medications other than pain medications can be prescribed by other physicians. Please let us know as soon as possible if you have received any medication from another healthcare provider (i.e. dentist, emergency department) prior to filling prescriptions.
We use cutting edge therapy and the most advanced interventional pain techniques to help reduce and, in some cases, eliminate your pain. You will find a list of common procedures and a whole lot more on our website. Please note this is not a complete list our Double Board-Certified Physicians offer more treatments that we can list, and a personalized treatment care plan will be discussed with you during your consultation.
Please note our office closes at 5:00 pm and we are not open on the weekends or major holidays, but at New Mexico Pain Center we are committed to our patients and are always available to you. If you have an emergency, we ask you go to call our after-hours answering service for advice or go to your nearest emergency center.
We require all patients to bring in a valid ID (State-issued ID, Military ID, Passports), and insurance cards on every visit, whether it be a follow-up or new consultations. In addition, it is our policy that you bring your pain medications for review on every visit.
