Jerome List, D.D.S., M.D. is not your average ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist. He’s also an experienced oral surgeon who speaks English, Spanish and Russian.

It’s a very innovative tool, and the people behind the product are extremely responsive.”
Advanced Spine & Pain
Many orthopedic surgeons are satisfied to simply finish residency and obtain board certification. Thomas J. Raley, M.D. took his training a bit further, pursuing a fellowship in spinal surgery and pain management. That drive and training, along with physician assistants, physical therapists, and other trained staff allow the surgeon to offer truly comprehensive care. Advanced Spine and Pain (ASAP) is a multidisciplinary practice that provides total spine care, including minimally invasive surgery, directed physical therapy, interventional pain management, and the latest in spinal surgery procedures. In order to deliver advanced, comprehensive care to a large patient population, Dr. Raley needs to have the logistics of his practice running smoothly. Since the surgeon currently takes all of his own call, an efficient and accurate answering system is not just important—it is essential. See how On Call Central helped ASAP improve the efficiency of after hours coverage.
