A physician referral is necessary to schedule an appointment at the U-M Back & Pain Center. If you are a physician and wish to make a referral, please look to the information below.

If you are a patient and wish to receive a referral, please have your primary care provider complete a Request Form and fax it, along with other relevant records as listed below, to us at 734-936-6585.

  • EMG results
  • Insurance information
  • Lab results
  • List of current medications
  • MRI results and images
  • Previous pain management notes (clinic and procedural)
  • X-Ray results and images
