New Patients

Spine patients
At Oak Tree Medical Center, we perform both CT and C-Arm fluoroscopic guided cervical, thoracic, and lumbar selective procedures which are both diagnostic (to identify the exact source of pain) and therapeutic (to alleviate the pain). We do not, however, perform major spine surgery. We have a conservative management philosophy; first accurately diagnose the problem, then treat the problem and restore function while the body heals itself. Some cases will require major/minor surgery, if that time occurs we will be happy to work with you to find the best option for your care.

Imaging Patients
Oak Tree Medical Center is a radiologist owned and operated facility. We have on-site radiologist to review your exams and answer any questions you may have. Please call our office to schedule an appointment or fill out our online form.

Please take special note of our preparations page.

Interventional Patients
Interventional Radiology is a sub-specialty of radiology which uses imaging-guided minimally invasive techniques to diagnose and treat a large variety of medical conditions that offers an alternative to the surgical treatment of many conditions and can even eliminate the need for hospitalization, in some cases. Interventional Radiology procedures involve the precise insertion of small specialized devices inside the body (such as catheters or guidewires) through tiny skin incisions using fluoroscopy, ultrasound, CT or MRI for guidance. Some of our procedures include:

• Drainages
• Biopsies
• Vascular Access
• Varicose Vein Ablations

Please contact our office to schedule an appointment.
