Attention WellMed HMO Policy Holders

This means that we will not be able to treat you as we are out of network with WellMed. 

Our application to be a in-network provider has been denied multiple times since 2020.  WellMed states they have many Pain Management providers already in network. 

Please contact WellMed to discuss converting your current insurance plan to a PPO or another insurance plan so we can continue to care for you.

You can request a list of in-network providers accepting new patients from WellMed.  We will be happy to send your medical records as soon as another provider has been identified

We appreciate you trusting us with your health-care needs. 

Thank you,

Spine & Joint Pain Specialists

The environment was relaxed, pleasant, and professional...

Been going to Spine and Joint for the last few years and my experiences have been positive. Recently had a procedure done and the environment was relaxed, pleasant, and professional. This helps ease some of the stress and edginess that comes with most medical procedures. Thank you S&J.
