At TimeWise Medical, we are on a mission to fulfill the needs and exceed the expectations of our patients.

Your health care matters to us. We offer a wide range of medical treatments in a warm, relaxed, and friendly atmosphere.

What should I expect from my experience at Timewise Medical?

We take great pride in our ability to listen to patients, and you never have to be concerned about feeling rushed during a consultation.  This is the only way that we can apply ourselves to the very best of our abilities.

What do I need to become a new patient?

We will need to review your records from previous providers over the past year and any imaging scans within the past year. It is very important for all patients currently on a pain medicine regimen to bring in all current pain medications in their original bottles. We also ask that you bring your driver's license, and any medical records that have not already been faxed.

What type of previous medical records are acceptable?

We accept medical records including those from physical therapy, chiropractic care, urgent care, previous pain clinic, and clinical notes from treating practitioners as long as they show a diagnosis from a provider with the qualifications to provide one.
