Telephone Consult - Get a Second Opinion

We understand that traveling with a back problem can be difficult and unsettling. That’s why we enable a person to talk with either Dr. Regan or his clinical staff to determine if a visit to our center would be beneficial to you.

For residents of California, Montana and Texas, a person can consult directly with Dr. Regan by phone for a consult fee, because Dr. Regan's private practice is licensed to practice in those states. He can provide consults and second opinions over the telephone to those people who live in these states for fees of $350 (for the telephone consultation) and $15 (for the return of X-rays, MRI's, or CT scans to a patient). An in office consultation can be arranged for $750. Because this involves significant time for our practice to receive your information and diagnostics, and for Dr. Regan to review your case in advance of your call, there is a fee for this consultation. A second opinion from a nationally respected spine specialist may also reassure that you have considered all treatment options for your particular problem.

Dr. Regan is an accomplished spine surgeon with years of experience in clinical trials. He is an expert on the latest technologies available for spine therapy. Dr. Regan discusses treatment options with a patient experiencing back pain

For people across the United States, Dr. Regan's clinical staff can review aspects about your case and answer general questions that would enable you to decide if traveling to our center would be beneficial to you.
