Specialized GP Consults
The General Practitioners at Caleo health have been provided with extensive training by our spine surgeons regarding, assessing, diagnosing and treatment of back and spine conditions. The Spine Physicians that perform the specialized GP consult are an essential aspect of Caleo Health’s back and spine initiative. The initiative has addressed regional and provincial concerns of increasing wait times and decreased accessibility to specialty consults.
The Spine and Pain focused Physicians at Caleo health are positioned to accept referrals from other General Practitioners throughout western Canada. The Caleo health physicians can assess these patients through the Spine and Chronic Pain Assessment Processes. Along with the rest of the assessment team, the physicians can provide the most responsible diagnosis and recommend further management or treatment.
Should the patient be deemed to suffer from a condition requiring a further specialist consult, the patient is provided with an in-house expedited referral to one of our specialists. This process is monitored and controlled by the Specialist at Caleo Health and a continuous line of communication is established between the Caleo Physicians, Specialists and referring Physicians.
