  • Who will I see during my visit at Terra Pain Consultants?

    We ask all new patients to bring a copy of their health insurance ID card, state issued driver’s license or photo ID, any co-pays that will be due at the time of the visit and imaging records. Patients are encouraged to bring any list of questions they have regarding their pain.
