ISPM and CPM Merge to offer the Most Convenient Pain Care!

Interventional Spine and Pain Management and Comprehensive Pain Management have combined to give patients the greatest choice in metro Atlanta for receiving care for their painful conditions. This exciting move will enable us to deliver better care to you by helping us leverage resources and expertise, and will result in improved customer service and outcomes for you and your family members.

The change will be transparent. You will maintain your present doctor and your insurance will still be accepted. You will go to your current office location and will see all of the familiar faces you’ve become accustomed to. Contact phone numbers will stay the same, as will office schedules and hours. The excellent care you have become accustomed to will continue, with improvements to come!

To facilitate the change, you may be required to complete new paperwork so we can register you under the new practice. Please excuse this minor inconvenience that will make you feel like a “new patient” all over again, but know that it is necessary in order to still be able to communicate with and bill your insurance provider for the services we give. Comprehensive Pain Management is now “an ISPM company,” as such, Comprehensive Pain Management patients should expect to receive correspondence from Interventional Spine and Pain Management.

As we work to deliver our best practices from both offices to all of our patients, you will begin to see improvements to your experience and care. Your feedback during this process is welcomed, and as always, your health and well being is our number one concern. We are excited about this union, and as we work to continue to maximize the positives from our combination, know that you will remain our top priority!
