General Benefits

  • We believe in Golden Rule Patient Care
  • Simply stated, Golden Rule Care means that we treat every patient, in all respects, the very same way we would want to be treated in exactly the same situation.
  • This is the mission of every employee and physician at Oak Tree Medical Center and is an ongoing discipline based on sincere respect for each individual, imagining ourselves to be in the patient’s shoes. It is supported by an ongoing commitment to knowledge, professional excellence, dedicated patient care, and consistently doing the very best we can for each person we encounter.
  • "Patient centered" physicians always onsite, not a rotating group of physicians, ready to answer any questions that you have in person or on the phone. Our doctors are recognized as experts within their field. To learn more about our staff physicians, please visit our physician staff page.
  • Our center prides itself on personalized attention and a responsive, compassionate staff.

Minimally Invasive Spine Procedures

  • Oak Tree offers a vast array of minimally invasive spine procedures including: selective epidural and nerve root blocks, facet blocks, discograms, myelograms and vertebroplasties. Additionally, our center is ideal for arthrograms.
  • We believe in conservative pain management .
  • Therapeutic injections provide immediate pain relief and facilitate early participation in additional conservative spine programs such as physical therapy, chiropractic, and other modalities, where appropriate.
  • With the ability to diagnostically image a patient onsite with our MRI or CT, we maintain the unique ability to both diagnose and treat your patient all under the same roof, often in one day.
  • All procedures are performed by our radiologist staff who, prior to any procedure, clinically correlate all relevant diagnostic information for increased accuracy.
  • Oak Tree is principally a “by referral only" practice, meaning our goal is to work in conjunction with our referring physicians to obtain the best outcome and long term approach to a patient's spine condition. Futhermore, we offer pre/post operative spine management.
  • All procedures are performed in a state-of-the-art surgical facility that is Medicare and State certified.
  • Our Spine center participates in research programs networked with similar centers nationwide so that we can benchmark our results nationally.
  • Our physicians are recognized experts in CT and C-arm fluoro guided spine procedures.
