The care team at Summit has experience in the workers compensation arena and is dedicated to delivering quality spine care and services.
Early diagnosis and a treatment plan allows the injured worker to return safely to work and helps keep the cost of medical treatment and lost time at work to a minimum. An injured worker can often see a Summit physician or mid level provider within one business day at our main clinics.
Communication and Coordination of Services
Quality of care is the focus of our treatment plan. We communicate with the injured worker, Qualified Rehabilitation Consultant (QRC) and employer. We provide objective documentation for payers. Patients can count of on us to assist with the coordination of their healthcare services including imaging and scans if necessary. Summit will coordinate a referral for a functional capacity evaluation (FCE) to learn your abilities and limitations. Once a diagnosis is made, Summit physicians will work with you to create a treatment plan that may include physical therapy, non-surgical treatment, or minimally invasive surgery.
Same day appointments may be available at select clinic locations. To schedule an appointment today call (651)968-5201. You’ll find our physicians and mid level providers are committed to delivering the highest quality of care to every patient at every visit.
