Our Practice Philosophy
COR: The Latin word for the heart. Some clinics have it, some don’t. Some big centers lose it along the way. We’re here to make sure that at the root of your care, the COR, is caring. Compassion and listening are at the heart of what we do. We'll always start there, because together the solutions come easier, better, and maintain for your longer journey of true recovery that lies ahead. We’re happy you’re here, and we'll be here for you.
COR Spine Pain Control Care
Teaming with you to provide care that works with your schedule and severity of your condition. Appointments are scheduled daily Monday - Friday after a referral from your doctor. We also offer our new Back Express Walk-In Clinic available on Mondays without a referral.
Monday is COR Spine's Walk-In Back Express Clinic. No referrals are necessary. Your insurance* will be checked at the time of service and cash payment is accepted. Most of the same services are available as during a scheduled appointment.
*Select insurances may require prior referral authorization.
Our imaging systems are the latest, highest quality, digital systems available, which means your spine or joint imaging is done immediately on-site starting with your first visit.
Using state of the art X-ray guidance, and a certified, in-room technician provides you the benefit of immediate access and the most accurate approach to your pain management.
Practicing in Northern Nevada for 25 years, Dr. Bruce Witmer's philosophy is there should be no agenda in medicine, only help. If you feel like your diagnosis or treatment is unexplained, or a procedure feels pressured, it’s worth digging deeper.
At COR Spine it’s okay to ask questions and be an active participant on your path to recovery. We’ll focus on your case individually, retrace your injury or aggravation, then map a course that’s right for you.
We utilize the most cutting edge and novel medical device in recent history. It’s called the ear. It’s used for listening. It conveniently connects wirelessly to the mind. This system, when used correctly, allows for listening and reasoning, which we believe, are the foundation for care and recovery. We strive to hear you, and thereby help you, every step of the way.
The first step is understanding the origin, the core causes of your symptoms. Then we can chart a course that works for you, your lifestyle and your goals. Sometimes the medical system and big medical practices push the latest procedure or newest device, rather than listening and truly caring about your concerns and needs.
Your best care starts with learning about your condition, understanding the steps in controlling the triggers, and conservatively implementing the right plan for your current case. Bypassing these steps for an unnecessary or trendy procedure only sets back the onset of your true healing.
If certain steps or procedures become necessary, they are best implemented as a part of the broader and thoroughly thought out plan. Our COR Spine staff are here for you as we work together to optimize your healing and recovery.
