Care Philosophy

Having seen the turmoil and trouble prescription drugs have caused our country over the last 2 decades, I prefer to use interventional procedures such as injections as well as non-opioid medications for chronic, non-cancer related neck and back pain. I do this in a way that will return my patients to a quality of life as close as possible to the one they once had. It is just as important for me to return my patients to work as it is to their friends and families.

in Elkhart, IN |
Dr Annis is part of the MOST caring team of doctors that I've ever known. He is always attentive and explains procedures in a way that I can understand, without EVER being patronizing.

"Pain Specialists" have a limited "bag of tricks", so to speak. If they cannot solve your problem with physical therapy or some type of injection, there is not much they can do. My concern with this doctor stemmed from I voiced my opinion and concerns regarding a procedure he wanted to do. He presented me with no other options for my neck, and no options for my upper back pain.

After being passed around from Doctor to Doctor, I finally landed in Dr. Annis' care and never looked back. True compassion and empathy seem to be a hard thing to find these days, especially when it comes to pain management specialists. Neither of those things fell short on Dr. Annis. He has a remarkable bedside manner, a great sense of humor, genuinely cares about each patient and shows it by spending as much time necessary with them. I will recommend him a million times over!
