The staff of Central Florida Pain Management look forward to welcoming you to our practice and finding solutions for your chronic pain. Our patient info helps new patients in central Florida, including the cities of Ocala and The Villages, know what to expect and how to prepare for their first appointments.
What Happens During the Consultation?
Your consultation with Dr. Alvarez-Perez includes a physical examination, symptom review, discussion about your chronic pain, and an overview of your treatment history. Our highest priority is to ensure that you receive the appropriate treatment in a timely manner, so this first appointment is important to determine an accurate diagnosis.
When Can I Schedule the Treatments?
We may be able to perform the recommended treatments during the consultation appointment. In most cases, though, new patients prefer to schedule their pain services for another day that is more convenient for them. This gives them time to look over the treatment plan and associated costs.
Do You Accept Medical Insurance?
We work with popular medical insurance carriers in the central Florida area, and many of the carriers will cover a portion of the cost of treatment. You may have out-of-pocket costs, such as co-payments, deductibles, or co-insurance. These amounts are due at the time of service, and we accept payment by cash, check, or credit card. If the procedure is not covered by your insurance or if we are not in network for your carrier, you may be considered a self-pay patient and responsible for the entire cost of your procedures. We will discuss this prior to performing the therapies in your treatment plan.
