Dr. Philip Blount coordinates care at the center, aided by MRC’s extensive network of onsite support services. These include MRI, EMG and other diagnostic tests, occupational and physical therapy and psychological counseling.
As a board-certified physical medicine and rehab physician, Blount is a nerve, muscle, brain and bone expert who focuses on non-surgical approaches to decrease pain and restore abilities.
Methodist Pain and Spine Center collaborates closely with area physicians and welcome referrals, as well as appointments from consumers who believe they might benefit from clinic services.
The staff at Methodist Pain & Spine Center believes people who suffer from pain deserve a prompt, skillful and thorough medical evaluation. This, coupled with a well-coordinated treatment plan, ensures the best possibility for immediate and long-term relief. It also prevents patients from being subjected to therapies or surgical treatment that may not be necessary or appropriate for their specific medical condition.
To that end, we make these promises:
- During normal working hours, a person will always answer your phone call, not an answering machine.
- You will always find easy and accessible parking with friendly security personnel to assist you, if needed.
- You will not wait hours in our waiting or exam rooms before the nurse or physician begins to address your needs. Our goal is to see you within 15 minutes of your scheduled appointment.
- Our staff will always treat you with courtesy and dignity. We will file your insurance and help you with any requests or financial concerns you may have.
- We will help you with follow-up appointments to other specialists, if needed, and respond promptly to your referring physician with requested medical information.
- Following your appointment, we will call to ask if you have questions or concerns about your treatment or have additional issues that need to be addressed.
- Once you are established as a patient at the Methodist Pain and Spine Center, you will be given instructions for contacting us after hours, on weekends or holidays, if needed.
