Preamble: Many of the issues I bring to you are very small, yet each issue is just that, an issue. If you take care of the small issues, then you will be able to build and more importantly, focus on the bigger issues...a larger practice and more family time.

"Case Management- Case Report”

A new case management report has been posted on the site:

1. The insurance carrier denied MRI's 

A 36 year old female patient has low back pain 8/10, with pain radiating down both her legs and came to my office for care. I took x-rays and see subtle posterior ilum changes with mild rotations at L4 and L5. I ordered MRI's, but the insurance carrier refused to approve the scans without 6 weeks of conservative care. What is the best course of action?
