Many people in the business world or in professional sports do not go for treatment of back problems due to contract negotiations, future promotions or stock market fluctuations. This is understandable, but unnecessary. Confidentiality and convenience are key with these patients.
We at ShimSpine can look after this by supplying after hour appointments and MRI’s with only minimal staff present (according to your specifications). There will be no disclosure of your office notes, tests or medical records to any outside entities.
