We are contracted with most major insurance providers. Give us a call and let us help you improve your life. If we are not contracted with your insurance provider let us know and we will attempt to work with you as best we can.
What to expect from ECPS - We are a comprehensive interventional pain management service. Our goal is to reduce or eliminate your pain and medication requirements and to get you back to work or whatever you want to do. We will form a "plan of attack" to both determine your exact pain issues and also how to resolve them. We want to make you feel better and get you back to living again. We will spend time answering your questions and making sure that you understand your diagnosis and your treatment options. We offer sedation for those who cannot tolerate procedures.
What we expect of you - We require patients to follow our treatment regimen so that we can help them improve. We are very strict with controlled medication usage and patients on controlled substances will be drug tested as per Florida Law and they must utilize the medication as directed. We will manage pain medications only while we are actively treating you with interventional modalities. All patients sign an exclusive narcotic contract that states they will only obtain pain medication from ECPS. Exceptions are made for patients who only wish to utilize us for procedures and get their medications elsewhere since they have a narcotic agreement with another doctor or for psychological medications such as for anxiety disorders or ADDH.
New patients who fail to show up at their initial consultation will not be re-scheduled. If you are currently seeing another pain management physician, we will require his office notes prior to scheduling you. Only Florida residents that are nearby (within a hour of our offices) will be scheduled for new appointments.
In an attempt to avoid overbooking of patients and to keep costs down, we expect a 72 hour notice of cancellation of an appointment or you may be charged a $100 cancellation fee for office visits and $200 for procedures.
What we are not - We are not a "pill mill". If you are only interested in obtaining pain medications and not pain manegemnt procedures then we are NOT the physicians for you. We do manage patient's pain medications while we are aggressively treating them but if we have nothing further to offer you except chronic pain medications then we may refer you elsewhere.
