How We Treat Your Pain - A Typical Visit

Scheduling

You will first call us and make an appointment. One of our schedulers will work with you and find an appointment time that works for you. The scheduler will also advise you on what information you will need to bring to your appointment. 

Arrival

You will walk in the front door of our building and let someone at the front desk know you are here for Dr. Rosche. They may ask you for your insurance information and to fill out some paperwork before your appointment. When a room is available, one of our nurses will bring you back, go over your information with you, and record your vitals.

Meeting With Dr. Rosche

You and Dr. Rosche will discuss you’re medical history and the issues you are currently having. You will decide on a treatment plan together, which may consist of an injective procedure, physical therapy, or medication. After your treatment has been carried out, you may need a follow up visit to address further issues you are having or to evaluate your treatment’s effectiveness. 

Procedure

If injective care is the selected treament or fluoroscopic evaluation is needed, our nurse will bring you back to our procedure room, prepare you for the procedure, and make sure you are comfortable.  Dr. Rosche will then use our C-arm fluoroscope to provide pinpoint accurate guidance throughout the process. Once he is finished, our nurse will return you to your room to rest momentarily, ask you some parting questions, retake your vitals, then discharge you from the clinic. 

Testimonials

5/5
"Dr. Rosche and his staff have been caring for me for several years now and have been nothing but kind and considerate. I have never waited longer than a couple of days to get in for an appointment and everyone is so nice to me they treat me like family. Dr. Rosche was the best choice I made with managing my chronic pain. I would refer friends and family to him."
- Kai
5/5
"I was in severe pain in my right lower leg and deep right buttocks for 2 weeks when I was referred to Dr. Rosche. I was on many medications for the pain but it didn't help. Pain was from herniated and bulging discs in my back. He read through my reports after my hospitalization with Sweds. He listened to my husband and myself, asked questions, explained what he could do to help me, said he could take away my pain, asked if I had any questions, and proceeded to give me a spinal block and an epidural. He and his entire staff were so professional and kind to us. What a wonderful clinic. Can't say enough good about them. Thank you so much! Today I have no pain in the areas affected and can stop all the medications. If I ever have a problem like this again, I will definitely return here and recommend them highly to family and friends."

Before Your Appointment!

Please have your primary physician and any other specialists you visit fax us your medical records. We are a fully private practice and are not affiliated with any other practices, and therefore keep our own independent medical records. 

Below is a link to our referral form. While your insurance may not require a referral, having your doctors fill out this form will make forwarding medical records to us easier.

FAQ

We always recommend to plan for at least 2 hours from start to finish when seeing a specialist. 

Most people feel some pressure but no major pain. We use a very small needle and numb the area prior to injection.

You can resume normal activity after an injection. We would suggest that if an activity causes increased pain then stop. 

Many patients feel immediate relief, but it can take up to 3 to 7 days to fully kick in. You can ice or lightly massage the area if it is sore, but we do NOT recommend using heat. 

This varies from person to person. Some get years, months, weeks or days of relief. We suggest to follow up in 2 weeks if you are not feeling 70-80% relief from the treatment. Also if the injection starts to wear off then call immediately to make another appointment; do not let the pain get severe again.
 

Medicine has come a long way. Every doctor has different techniques and skill. We also use a fluoroscopy machine to pin-point the exact location and can see the medicine flowing. 

We monitor how many injections and how much steroid we give you in a 6 month period. If we feel you are getting too much then we will put you on a 6 month “steriod hold” to let that medicine diminish. Too much steroid in a small amount of time can weaken the bones.
