ask our doctors...

q:

Are all of your providers licensed?

a:

All of our providers are licensed in their respective areas of expertise by the New York State Office of Professions. The status of all MaxWell Medical employee credentials can be verified at http://www.op.nysed.gov/opsearches.htm.

q:

Will I have to repeat my symptoms to each doctor?

a:

No, here at at MaxWell Medical we take a team approach to care. Every morning we have team meetings in which we discuss the progression of each patient’s care. This is beneficial to you, as a patient because your physical therapist, chiropractor, and medical doctor will cover any gaps in your care. But, there may be some occasions in which we’ll ask for your current pain scale and symptoms. We believe that patients should have a running dialogue with their therapists to remain informed about their treatment plan.

q:

What is a treatment plan?

a:

A treatment plan is the doctor’s assessment of your symptoms and recommendation for treatment. He/She will establish the use of different modalities to be utilized in the treatment of your condition. All treatment plans are individualized and our Board Certified Physiatrists set treatment based on frequency and duration. It is uniquely designed depending on numerous factors, such as, medical history, symptoms, and the necessity of diagnostic testing. With all the variables in mind, our doctors set treatment plans usually for 1-3 times a week, over a 2-4 week period. It is then that the patient is reevaluated depending on care and progression of pain relief.

q:

How often will I see the doctor?

a:

On your initial visit you will be seen by the Medical Doctor and he/she will establish a treatment plan for you. The doctor will reevaluate you within 2 weeks and then, every 4 weeks. Follow-up exams are crucial for evaluating a patient’s progress. Our Board Certified Physiatrists review and reassess your conditions for any new symptoms. By doing so, they are able to adjust treatment plans accordingly to your need. These exams are also an excellent opportunity for you to have dialogue with our doctors about your healthcare.

q:

What types of medical services do your doctors offer?

a:

Here at MaxWell Medical, you are able to receive a multitude of services. This includes comprehensive physical exams that are used to create individualized treatment plans. We also offer tripper point therapy, EMG testing, and the order and review of all MRI reports.

q:

What occurs during the trigger point injection therapy?

a:

Trigger point injection therapy is actually a very simple and short procedure. The majority of trigger point injections are performed in your doctor’s office, or at a clinic specializing in pain reduction therapy. The procedure takes about 10 minutes. You will be asked to sit or lie down in a comfortable position. The physician will palpate your skin, looking for the trigger points that are causing you pain. Once the trigger point has been detected, your doctor may use a special needle connected to a monitor or locate the exact position of your trigger point. When the trigger point has been found, a needle containing 3 to 5 mL of local anesthetic (usually lidocaine) will be injected directly into the site.

q:

How do Trigger Point Injections Feel?

a:

Trigger point injections aren’t painful, but they do cause some discomfort. As your doctor palpates your skin to find the trigger point, you may feel some aching or burning pain. You may also notice that you have a twitch reaction when the trigger point is located. The injection itself will not be that painful. When the needle enters the trigger point you may feel some pain, but it should only last for a few seconds.
