Here at Camp Interventional Pain, we like to make sure our patients have all the information they need in regards to their care with our clinic. Attached is a Frequently Asked Questions page to help answer any questions our patients may have!
Do I need a referral to see either Dr. Camp/Jade and/or Dr. Boris?
No, you don’t need a referral from another physician to see any of them. We are happy to see you without a referral although occasionally insurance plans do require this.
Do I need to try conservative therapies before I can try a procedure?
Dependent on your symptoms imaging, history, and overall situation, conservative therapies may or may not be recommended. We are always happy to see you and help get you in the right direction.
Are you currently taking new patients?
The answer is YES! We are still accepting new patients whether it be through referrals from another physician, or a self-referral.
What insurances do you accept that are in-network?
We accept most insurance plans for both medical services and chiropractic services!
What does a new patient visit typically look like?
We know that being a new patient at a new clinic can be a little overwhelming, but we are here to help ease that a little bit. A few things to expect as a new patient are: a phone call from one of our staff to ask a couple of questions such as, “Where is the pain primarily located? How long has this pain been bothering you? etc). Once your appointment is here, there will be new patient paperwork to fill out. We recommend arriving 10-15 minutes prior to your appointment.
How do I request a refill on my medication? In general, we focus on non-narcartic medications.
You can easily request a refill by calling our office, by sending a text, or by sending a message in your Patient Portal. We recommend requesting your refill 24-48 hours before you run out to ensure we have time to get the order back to Jade, APRN or Dr. Camp to review. There are times where they request a follow up appointment in office to get an update on how you are doing with this medication and determine if there’s anything else that may need to be done.
Does Dr. Camp and Jade, APRN prescribe opioids?
At Camp Interventional Pain Associates, we are a non-opioid clinic. We pride ourselves on locating the source of the pain and trying to get you back to improved functional status and overall quality of life. However, we do prescribe other types of medications used to help manage pain.
I have a procedure coming up, scheduled with Dr. Camp. What should I expect?
You should be given a Procedure Time as well as an Arrival Time. We ask that you arrive 1 hour prior to you procedure time. For surgeries, please arrive 2 hours prior to your appointment. Most of Dr. Camp’s procedures are done with local anesthetic (numbing at the skin). You may eat normally prior to your procedure unless you are having IV sedation or anesthesia, then you must not eat or drink 8 hours prior to your scheduled time. Continue wit your normal medications with “sips” of water unless otherwise stated. You can expect to be sore post procedure and we recommend to take it easy. There will be a follow-up appointment, they are utilized to see how you’re doing after the procedure and determine what the next step is.
