Dr. Pena's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Pena "I believe in a holistic approach to pain therapy because I recognize that pain can affect many aspects of a patient's life. I was trained in interventional pain management using minimally invasive techniques to relieve, reduce or manage pain. These techniques include fluoroscopic imaging, spinal cord stimulation, steroid injections, nerve blocks and radiofrequency ablation. Pain management also includes treatments such as physical therapy, medication management, and behavior modification. I have experience treating cancer pain, fibromyalgia, myofacial pain and providing palliative pain care at the end of life. In addition to interventional medicine, I believe in using complimentary therapies, such as acupuncture and massage therapy, when they are appropriate. I try to give my patients options for managing their pain and improve their functionality and overall quality of life."

in Fairfield,ca |
I feel she doesn't listen and she tries to reduce your medication without cause or justification or even telling ypu just decides to do it and leaves you in pain for rest of the month.you advise ofnpain level on document that its severe, yet she reduces medication. shes done this several times. If she doesn't want to give meds then why am I going there and why is she a pain specialist? Because her ideas don't help control pain. She's sneaky about it as well. Don't recommend.
