Dr. Sahinler's Care Philosophy

As a pain management physician I believe "pain" has many facets and cannot be treated in one modality. It has to be approached with a comprehensive plan instead of just throwing narcotics at it. I believe most pain can be improved by a good work-up for diagnosis and a well treatment plan. I try very hard to help everyone that walks in through our doors within my ability. I feel privileged to be able to do what I do and provide people relief.

    Dr. Sahinler was the third doctor I have seen after failed spine surgery. He showed an outstanding level of care for my situation. He was extremely thorough, and was patient in answering numerous questions. He explained several options as well as the pros and cons for each. He was the first doctor I've seen that genuinely cared about my well being. He clearly studied my situation well in advance, and knew many details of my medical history before I stepped foot into his office. Great experience!

    I worked with Dr. Sahinler collaboratively and productively to alleviate my pain for nearly 7 years. He is an intelligent, articulate, and best, a compassionate physician. Dr. Sahinler consulted with me thoroughly during each visit, and made me a true partner in my own pain management, which is a rarity in his field. Thanks to his expertise and encouragement, I was able to teach students with disabilities, the work I love, and care for my family. I miss Dr. Sahinler, & recommend him highly!
