Ask Your Primary Care Doctor for a Referral
Are you struggling with back or neck pain? Are you finding it a challenge to locate a doctor on your own? Are you concerned about seeking help from a doctor who won’t provide you with the appropriate treatment?
It’s common to find yourself lost and looking for answers when struggling with back and/or neck pain. Fortunately, you’re not alone. Through the assistance of your primary care doctor, you can find a specialist who’s able to provide you with a detailed diagnosis and treatment plan to help you regain control of your life.
We regularly consult with patients who are referred to us by local primary care doctors. Here’s a recent patient review:
“My primary doctor referred me to Dr. Sharma for treating my spinal instability. I was impressed by the fact that he went over several treatment options with me and encouraged me to be a part of the decision every step of the way. When I finally decided on surgery, he was able to minimally invasively address all my spinal problems and I have remained pain free and highly functional.”
If this patient’s primary care doctor would have attempted to treat the problem on their own, the patient may have never found a solution. Subsequently, they would have been dealing with the same pain and suffering to this day.
When you require the assistance of a specialist, don’t hesitate to involve your primary care doctor. They can quickly point you in the right direction, thus helping you obtain the treatment you’ve been seeking.
