Your Health Comes First
Healthcare in America has become a complex administrative task with insurance companies often directing the course and timing of treatment. Some practitioners responded by trying to quickly churn through patients like a fast-food restaurant.
Not at Palm Beach Spine & Diagnostic Institute – Your Health Comes First!
All of our patients spend meaningful time with Dr. Gorfine for a proper evaluation of the nature of the pain / injury. We make arrangements for all relevant diagnostic tests (some of which are performed right in our facility), analyze the results and offer treatment options.
We do not perform major expensive back surgery. We don’t prescribe narcotics to mask the symptoms. Instead, we treat the source of the pain / injury with minimally-invasive procedures to produce long-term relief.
How? Dr. Gorfine has always been in the forefront of the latest medical advances and has pioneered the newest techniques in regenerative medicine that have just recently become in great demand. Of course, those other doctors don’t have decades of experience performing procedures such as prolotherapy, platelet-rich plasma injections and radiofrequency treatments. These procedures and more (facet injections & RF, epidural steroid injections, laser therapy, micro-targeted cortisone injections, etc.) are performed in our own state-of the art surgical center.

We promise you won’t be treated like a number. We provide personal treatment, focus on your pain / injury and make sure that your health comes first.
