Dr. David Gale, MD

I specialize in non-surgical treatment of various pain syndromes and chronic pain conditions. Although the majority of my practice involves back and spine pain, I have a special interest in neuropathic pain, or pain caused by nerves that should not be triggering a painful stimuli. As president of the Georgia Society of Interventional Pain Physicians, I also have a passion working with the federal and state governments advocating for laws and programs that will insure the development of new technologies and treatments going into the future.

Thank You Dr. Gale for your help in getting over this episode with my back pain! In the past I had used other physicians in Metro Atl. and I am completely satisfied with the service I received at your office. Had I known I certainly would have been there sooner!!! Thanks again!
