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.Read more

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!
