In an effort to provide the best care for you in a timely manner, you may see on occasion our Physician Assistant who is an extension of Dr. Pitt.
You will see Dr. Pitt on your first visit and he will develop your plan of care, unless you have an issue you feel must be evaluated earlier than his next available scheduled appointment time, in which case you can see the Physician Assistant who will initiate treatment for your pain, order the necessary diagnostic studies or labs, and provide a initial treatment plan prior to your visit with Dr. Pitt. This will greatly accelerate your treatment and will provide Dr. Pitt all of the necessary diagnostic information to activate a definitive treatment algorithm specific to your needs.
