Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Annis "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."
