General Patient Information & Office Policies
Welcome to Northeast Arkansas Pain Medicine Clinic and The Pain Center of Jonesboro, LLC. You have come to a place where someone understands what life is like for those who suffer from acute and chronic pain. We will listen to you. We think it is important to treat you as a whole person. We’d like to understand your problems, your frustration and your limitations.
We also need to understand your goals, whether returning to full duties and activities, playing sports, carrying on with your job or simply being able to take care of yourself and maintain some degree of independence.
We will devise a diagnostic plan and a treatment strategy specific to you. Our goal is to return you to a normal level of activity by reducing or eliminating your pain and having you enjoy life again.
For you to reach maximum benefit from this program, you need to become an active participant in all aspects of your care. We regard our relationship as a partnership united by the common goal of improving your situation. Our most successful patients are very involved in their own care and take responsibility for their fair share of work. We will be there for you, with advice, direction and encouragement. We’ll act as coaches, lifestyle and motivational counselors, but you will be the one who needs to make it happen.
We believe true magic really happens when you leave our clinic, not when you’re inside. That’s where you need to pull yourself together again, piece by piece. Patiently committed to have a better life.
We believe most our patients must have a primary care physician.We cannot manage all your medical problems. As we help you with the pain, we will refer you back to your family physician for all other medical needs. We’ll happily communicate with you primary healthcare providers if we have any suggestions or warnings related to your conditions or medical regimen. We consider it part of our approach to treat you as a person, whole and complex, not just as a pain case number.
