Dear Friend and Patient,
As you may know, the number of automobile accidents has risen dramatically in our country. Many of you have approached us with questions regarding what proper steps should be taken after an accident.
I am one of only a few doctors in the state of Maryland that has been through an extensive postgraduate program in auto accent trauma and rehabilitation, for which I received advanced certification. (See website for Spine Research Institute of San Diego) (www.srisd.com/research.htm)
If you are involved in an auto accident, I would urge you to call our office, and make an appointment for an evaluation. Even if you have been given a cursory examination at the Emergency Room, problems resulting from an auto accident can surface months to years later.
Please be aware that care for an auto accident is covered under the auto insurance policy. You do not need a referral from your primary care physician.
Do not hesitate to call us with any questions at (301) 932-2100
Dr. Frank Alfano
