Attention WellMed HMO Policy Holders
Dear WellMed HMO Patients,
WellMed has shared they will no longer authorize any visits or procedures with Spine & Joint Pain Specialists as of March 5th, 2023 for all patients that are part of a WellMed HMO.
The following plans are affected by this change:
September is National Pain Awareness Month
This month was created to increase the awareness about the effects of pain and to open the lines of communication in our local communities, so that pain can be better understood and managed.
Did you know?
• Pain affects more than Americans than diabetes, heart disease, and cancer combined.
• 80% of people in the U.S. will experience back pain at some point in their lives.
One of our top priorities at Spine & Joint Pain Specialists is to spread awareness and educate our patients about treatments options available to alleviate painful conditions.
Exciting News from SJPS!
Dr. Tisdall & our team are excited to welcome Cesar Velarde, MD to Spine & Joint Pain Specialists!
Farewell Dr. Bourgeois
Dr. Jonathan W. Bourgeois will be moving back to his home State of Oregon mid-June, after 22 years of adventure on the East Coast and Texas! He wishes his patients good health, a pain-free future, and many thanks for the opportunity and privilege of being their pain doctor for the past 4 years. We will miss him and wish his family well!
Fiesta 2022 is Here!
Fiesta Week, also known as Fiesta San Antonio and previously known as Fiesta San Jacinto, is a 10-day festival that started in 1891 as a flower parade dedicated to the heroes who lost their lives in the battles of San Jacinto and The Alamo.
Fiesta has grown to host over 100 events that feature parades, music, food, military and patriotic observances, and pageantry. It is a true celebration of San Antonio’s rich and diverse heritage, culture, and spirit!
Grateful and Thankful for You!
In Keeping with the spirit of the holiday season
In keeping with the spirit of the holiday season, SJPS and the Borracho Tailgaters participated in a toy drive to collect toys to donate to CASA (Child Advocates of San Antonio). Together, they doubled their goal (which was 500 toys) and donated a total of 1,000 toys!
