Pain Procedures and Pain Clinic: Faster, Easier Access for Referring Physicians

Referring physicians/providers may use the tools below for faster and easier access to interventional pain procedures (epidural injections, nerve blocks, etc.) and Pain/Headache Clinic visits:
  • To order a pain procedure only (where no clinic visit is needed beforehand), please download and complete our Pain Procedure Request Form (pdf) and fax it to (608) 265-0931. Please include copies of pertinent medical records if referring from outside UW Health.

     

  • For inquiries about a procedure, call (608) 265-1770. For urgent requests, call Nel Lemmenes at (608) 265-3606.

     

  • To order a pain/headache clinic visit, please download and complete our Clinic Consultation Request Form (pdf) and fax it to (608) 263-0135. Please include copies of pertinent medical records if referring from outside UW Health. Our clinic referral criteria are listed on Page 2 of the form.

     

  • For inquiries about a clinic visit, call (608) 263-9550. For urgent requests, call Nel Lemmenes at (608) 265-3606, or Nathan Rudin, MD at (608) 265-1257.

If there are problems getting a patient scheduled, please contact Nel Lemmenes for assistance by calling (608) 265-3606. We have shortened our wait times for first appointments and will work to get your patients seen quickly. Currently, our longest wait times are for the Headache Clinic.

 

Thank you! We hope this will make it easier for you to get your patients the procedures and clinic visits they need. We are working hard to give you faster access to the very best pain care available.
