Which insurance plans do you accept?

We participate in almost all insurance plans. Louisiana Pain Specialists staff will verify your insurance coverage prior to scheduling an appointment or procedure. Our insurance specialist will answer any questions you have related to your benefits and discuss patient responsibility for services. This will give you a better understanding of what will be covered by your insurance company.


Should I stop taking medications before the procedure and how long before I resume taking them?

Generally, you should continue your medications as prescribed by your treating physicians including pain medications. If you are taking any blood thinners such as Coumadin, Plavix, Persantine, or Heparin, you should inform our staff and discontinue these medications 72 hours prior to your procedure ONLY if your treating physician approves the temporary discontinuation. You may resume your blood thinners immediately after the procedure. If you are a diabetic do not take your insulin or oral hypoglycemic medicines before the procedure. Please bring your medicine with you and you may take it after the procedure.


Should I tell my medical provider that I am having pain?

Yes. Your health care provider needs to assess your pain, so it is very important for your health care team to know if you are in pain.


Are there risks to interventional pain treatment?

Yes, all medical management tools from medicines to invasive procedures such as surgery carry risks. Generally, interventional pain management techniques carry unlikely and minimal risk. Upon your consultation visit, these risks will be explained.

Testimonials

I like the early and fast appointments. Makes it a quick process.

Patient of the Marrero office

With Dr. Jolly’s help and my radio frequency ablation treatment, I went from feeling disabled to whole again. I was able to stop medications — ones that I’d become dependent on for more than a year.
