For many on Long Island, spinal issues can spring up without warning, causing immense discomfort and impeding daily activities. Recognizing the immediate need for specialized care in such situations, Long Island Spine Rehabilitation Medicine is proud to introduce the “Spine-1-1” service. Spearheaded by Dr. Perry Zelinger, this initiative offers timely attention to those in need at our branches in Great Neck, East Meadow, and Lindenhurst.
While the “Spine-1-1” service promises same-day care, it’s imperative to understand that medical emergencies necessitate dialing 911. To reach a member of our care team for a same day or next day appointment, see the “Spine-1-1” tab on the top of our home page, or dial 1-888-Spine-1-1 or visit Spine11.com.
