Appointments can be arranged by contacting Dr. Krishna’s secretary (Jo Creedy) on 07703292692. Please leave a message if the secretary is not available to take your call.
Alternatively, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or simply fill the ‘Get in Touch’ form available on our website: www.painspa.co.uk.
A referral letter from your GP or any other specialist involved in your treatment would be helpful but is not an absolutely necessity.
Please bring a list of medications (ideally a copy of your prescription) and results of any investigations such as scans or blood tests done recently.
Please bring copies of letters from consultations with other specialists if related to your current problem.
You will be seen by Dr. M Krishna, Consultant in Pain Medicine. Our Pain Nurse may also be present during the consultation. The consultation is likely to last up to 45 minutes. Dr. Krishna will conduct a comprehensive review including taking a detailed history, medication review, examination and organising relevant investigations if appropriate. Finally, he will formulate a detailed management plan, which will be communicated to your GP through a clinic letter. A copy of the letter will be sent to you and to any other relevant specialists involved in your management.
This is possible in some cases but it depends on a number of factors:
For some injections like botox, we need to order the drug on a ‘named patient basis’ and hence it may not be available on the same day.
If you undergo injection treatment we strongly advise that you are accompanied by a responsible adult who can drive you back to your home.
Some injections require fluoroscopy (X-ray) guidance and hence cannot be performed on the same day.
You can discuss this with our secretary prior to your appointment.
Dr. Krishna sees patients from all over the world. Patients have visited us from many countries including America, Canada, India, Hongkong, Sweden, Spain, France, Guyana, Morocco, Netherlands, Greece, New Zealand, Italy, Switzerland, Slovenia, Brunei, Denmark, Ireland, and Saudi Arabia, to name a few.
If you give us enough notice, we will try our best to organise an interpreter. You will need to pay for the interpreter services but we will tell you in advance the cost of their services. Alternatively, some of our overseas patients have used Google translator with good success.
