  • Diagnoses include neuromusculoskeletal disorders, auto accident, work injuries, Nerve entrapment syndromes, Sports Medicine, Neuropathic Disorders, Gait Dysfunction, Tension Myalgia Syndrome / Chronic Pain.
  • Practice algorithms to treat pain with minimal to no use of opiates.
  • Chronic pain (opioids) patients – Preferably none. They discourage these patients from coming to our practice. They prefer to successfully manage pain without opiates and do so regularly. Their full-time outpatient doctor does have some patients on stable doses of opiates that he may maintain if they are successful in obtaining true relief in that they are functional on the stable dose. Otherwise he tries to wean off.
  • EMG’s – There are some referred by their doctors, some are referred by other physicians who learn to trust their doctors’ studies and the doctors generate their own from the patients they see. The number you would do all depends on how good you are at doing the EMGs and marketing. Their full-time outpatient doctor does a lot of them, teaches residents, has published papers in NCVs / EMG and is happy to mentor anyone that wishes to refine their skills. He generates quite a few from his Spine Clinic. You could do the same.  EMG’s are NOT required.
  • They do not have an US machine
  • A C-arm suite is available
  • The practice serves a number of nursing home and subacute programs, which would also be available
  • EMR-They have TouchChart. It’s NOT a classic EMR. They opted not to go down that road due to the enormous loss of productivity these cost on a physicians’ time, not to mention the frustration & the eventual generation of much meaningless drivel of templated notes. What they have is an electronic equivalent to an old standard chart. Access to everything is instant, work in-baskets can be completed from anywhere in the world, everything is filed and moved around electronically, but you’re seeing a visual of your notes, dictations, lab tests, etc. They do the fastest way to document accurately, they dictate! One of their doctors is a die-hard Medical Dragon Dictation fan and uses his own templates.
  • Dictation – They have a comprehensive 5 page Health History Questionnaire that they send to all new patients. They review it with the patient and use it for the PMH components that they don’t want to dictate. Immediately at the end of the visit, we dictate the note into a handheld recorder. They are on top of all the documentation regs and they have abbreviated the process accordingly. It depends on the doctor. Some like to use the dictation to summarize ALL important points and others dictate mostly an Impression & Plan and add in the critical points to refer to later.
