Referring Provider Information
The Montana Spine & Pain Center is a referral based clinic that provides comprehensive spine evaluations and chronic pain management for musculoskeletal conditions.
At the Montana Spine & Pain Center, we use a multidisciplinary team approach. Our core team includes health care providers in osteopathic medicine, physical medicine, interventional pain medicine, orthopedic medicine, behavioral medicine, neuropsychology and pharmacology. If necessary, we also arrange appropriate consults in other specialties such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, neurology and neurosurgery.
How to Make a Referral
We ask that referring practitioners provide our team with information so we can best care for the patient. To make a referral, please complete and fax the referral form below to (406) 329-5697 along with sufficient clinical records to enable us to provide the services you are requesting.
At this time we do not provide pain management evaluation or treatment for patients with headache, abdominal pain or pelvic pain as the primary pain problem. Our practice is limited to musculoskeletal pain conditions.
- We will not assume care as the "treating physician" for a patient until the evaluation process is complete and we have agreed to assume care for the patient.
- We will not write prescriptions for a patient on the first visit.
- We will not write prescriptions for a patient until after the evaluation process has been completed and have notified the referring provider that we agree to assume care for the patient.
- We will refer patients to the referring provider for all medication refills prior to notifying the referring provider that we are assuming care for the patient.
