We also recognize the special needs of each individual, understanding that strong motivation and long-term commitment are crucial to modifying levels of pain. I recognize that altering lifetime habits requires education, emotional support and commitment. Working with you I will determine a medication and treatment program to improve your pain control, and help you to make the decisions and take the steps to improve function. My staff and I will coach you in making the necessary lifestyle changes that can lead you to a more normal and satisfying life, as well as better health. Making the decision to begin pain management and choosing someone you re comfortable can meet your needs can be difficult. I invite you to consider whether it s time to let me help you take your life back."

Dr. Bothe is an awesome doctor. However his axilaxillary staff is extremely rude and incompetent, as is the billing person. If it wasn't for the attitude and the practice manager speaking to someone regarding another patient, I'd give more stars.
