Thank you for joining me again this evening for our nightly podcasts. I perform these podcasts in the hopes that you will be able to education yourself on the topics discussed so you can make better informed medical decisions regarding your health in the future. I am doctor Harrison Campbell of Restoration Health a premier sugar land chiropractors office. Previously we discussed a shoulder case which presented to my clinic recently. Tonight, we will be going back to breaking down a specific topic. We will be looking at three areas in which Restoration Health can help you where most primary care physicians cannot provide assistance.
To start we will discuss personal injury cases. What is typically meant when the term personal injury is used is a motor vehicle accident. Now typically most people who are in a motor vehicle accident seek care at their primary care physician or PCP for short. Often times when trying to make the appointment to be seen, they are turned away because most primary care doctors do not treat personally injury or car accident patients. This leaves the patient in a bind because the person they turn to when injured states they cannot help them. What do the patients do then? How can they find a doctor which can help them get out of the pain they are experiencing?
This is where Restoration Health a premier sugar land chiropractors office can help. We have the expertise and the knowledge to treat car accident victims. We never turn away a patient which we can help. We know the proper protocol for car accident cases and seek to help the patient return to full health as quickly as possible.
Now another problem victims of car accidents run into at their primary care doctor is only having one visit and maybe a follow-up appointment if they are lucky. The reason for this is the primary care doctors usually are not equipped to bill or do not want to take the time to bill to the car insurance company for the visit. This means they reduce how often they see you, and you will be left with prescriptions to fill and a get well soon as you leave with no real plan in place to help. We at Restoration Health feel this is a disservice to the patient and we are working to correct this problem at primary care doctors.
We meet with as many primary care doctors in the area to establish a network letting these doctors know that there is somewhere, they can recommend their patients. We show them we are the premier sugar land chiropractors in the area with the ability to help those patients in need. This means that you can receive the prescription from your primary doctor but also receive a referral to the best sugar land chiropractors in the area for further rehabilitation. This means you have the pain relief through the medication but also a plan moving forward to help you recover from the injury and receive the care you need to get back on your feet.
Another way Restoration Health can help you that most primary doctors cannot is worker’s compensation. We have the knowledge of the procedures for worker’s compensation claims which allows the patient to receive care and have their case move forward. In these cases, most primary care doctors will simply inform you that they do not do worker’s compensation. Again, the reason is they are ill equipped to handle the documentation which is associated with a worker’s compensation case. They do not want to take the time to deal with the adjustors and the pre-authorizations and the protocols that come with Texas worker’s compensation claims.
Again I often find patients who come to my clinic for worker’s compensation saying they tried to go to their doctor but were turned away. I understand a doctor not doing worker’s compensation claims, they are complicated and if you are not informed this complexity will cause problems with treatment. What I do not understand is not providing the patient with an alternative doctor for care. This is why Restoration Health a premier sugar land chiropractors office is trying to network with as many primary care doctors as possible so these patient have a place to go for care.
A third are where we can help which most primary care doctors cannot is rehabilitative care. All primary care doctors are what is called a portal of entry. What this is means is they act as gate keepers and help direct patient where they need to go. This is an important step to ensure patients can get to the doctor which can help as quickly as possible. What this also means is that there is an extra step with a primary care doctor to receiving treatment. Again, Restoration Health is a premier sugar land chiropractors office and we are capable of offering the best possible care for neuromusculoskeletal injuries.
This means that we can assist with your rehabilitation required for your injury. As stated, before we are trying to network with as many primary care doctors so they have a notion on where to go for their rehabilitative care which the primary care doctor will not be performing in their office. We do this so that the good people of sugar land have a one stop spot for personal injury, worker’s compensation, and rehabilitation. This is what makes Restoration Health a premier sugar land chiropractors office.
