Sorry to hear about your experience. It can be frustrating when in pain and trying to navigate the insurance referral system. While our staff is experienced in quick processing of referral and we offer same day visits, unforeseen challenges can still arise. Patients are encouraged to ask to speak directly to the office manager when there appears to be a delay in the process. We wish you the best in your recovery.
