"Do I need my previous X-Rays and records?"
You don't have to bring your actual x-rays but rather the x-ray report if you feel it would be helpful for the doctor to see. Results of recent lab work done in the last six months, or any other specialized testing records are also helpful to prevent repetition.
"When is payment expected?"
Payment is due at the time of service. Painless Living accepts cash, personal checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. Click here for complete billing policies.
"Is Painless Living a part of any insurance network?"
We are not a part of any insurance networks. Painless Living will provide patients with detailed invoice that they can submit to their insurance company for possible reimbursement. The invoice will be marked asking the insurance company to send any reimbursement directly to the patient. If the insurance company inadvertently sends the payment to Painless Living, we will promptly reimburse the patient in the form of a check. Painless Living cannot however, guarantee any insurance reimbursements. Some of the services at Painless Living may not be billable to any insurance company.
"How long will I sit in the waiting room?"
Not long. You may want to come a little early to fill out some preliminary paper work, but other than that, you will see Dr. Cassaro at the time your a re scheduled. For this reason, it is important that you contact our office at least 24 hours in advance with any appointment changes.

"How long should I plan for for appointments?"
The amount of time your appointment will take varies greatly. It all depends on what tests and treatments are given by Dr. Cassaro, based on your individual pain condition. There is no "standard" time allocation for a patient. Set aside at least an hour, possible more.
"Will I get treatment for my pain on my first visit?"
Dr. Cassaro will immediately begin the process of testing, examination, and treatment as of the first visit to Painless Living. Treating your chronic pain is Dr. Cassaro's top priority.
"Will I be able to drive after most treatments?"
Most of the time. If Dr. Cassaro needs to apply a treatment that could impair your ability to operate a vehicle (or any heavy equipment/machinery) you will be notified in advance; prior to your appointment. This way, you can make necessary accommodations for transportation and work.
"Do I need to fast before my appointment?"
Fasting is only required for certain lab tests. Fasting is required for 12-15 hours before those appointments, with the exception of water. If you are instructed to fast, and your appointment is first thing in the morning, eat nothing after dinner the night before your appointment.
"What is Neuroendocrine Modulation Therapy?"
Neuroendocrine Modulation Therapy is the practice of finding and treating issues within the body's metabolism that may be causing your pain to feel worse. When this type of treatment is used with other treatments, pain can be reduced greatly throughout the entire treatment process.
