(Rockville Centre, NY – August 1, 2022) The NSPC Mobile Service, a new “neurosurgical office on wheels,” visited the headquarters of the Town of Babylon on Thursday, July 28, 2022. Nearly a dozen town employees were examined by an experienced NSPC spine neurosurgeon during a day-long visit to Lindenhurst. The event was like two other successful, recent stops at the offices of the Town of Islip and the Town of Smithtown. During each visit, town employees were able to have the causes of their neck and back pain assessed, during the business day, at their workplace.
According to William J. Sonstein, M.D., President, NSPC Brain & Spine Surgery, the new service was created to make it easier for people with an acute or chronic spine condition to get examined by an experienced neurosurgeon. Housed in a customized 26-foot van, the NSPC “mobile office” is equipped to visit work sites, public offices, and other locations anywhere in Nassau, Suffolk, or Queens Counties.
“The launch of NSPC Mobile was driven, in part,” notes Dr. Sonstein, “to accommodate patients who might be reluctant to visit a medical office because of Covid-19 concerns.” In addition, he points out, many patients delay seeing a physician because they believe “they don’t have the time for an appointment.”
“I’ve been in practice for over 20 years,” observes Dr. Sonstein, “and the reason many patients do not consult with me sooner is the difficulty associated with taking time off from their job or finding time in their personal schedule to make an appointment. Bringing a doctor to the workplace changes everything.”
According to Dr. Sonstein, “The NSPC Mobile office provides patients with a convenient alternative to a conventional office because it will be
available during the business day. Best of all, this new service may allow us to quickly determine if a more thorough exam is needed at an NSPC
medical office or if a referral to another specialist is appropriate.” A NSPC “telemedicine” follow-up appointment option is available, too.
Robert Labiento, the Town of Babylon’s Director of Health & Wellness, says we “received excellent care from Dr Sonstein and his entire staff at the NSPC Brain and Spine Mobile Unit. Simple, easy, and comprehensive appointment for lower back pain. Very helpful and enjoyable experience for myself and the staff at the Town of Babylon. Dr. Sonstein is incredibly knowledgeable and uses every avenue to help his patients. I highly recommend a visit for any back/neck/shoulder pain.”
