Dr. Gale's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Gale "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."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gale "I enjoy working with my patients to understand their condition and work as a team with them to develop a care plan specific for their needs. I am also a firm believer in making sure that the patient fully understands what their situation and care plan is. My patients do better when they understand their physical issues."

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!

I absolutely love Dr. Gale and his entire staff...Wait time is minimal and he never sugar coats anything. He has such a wonderful bedside manner, so to speak, and his Injection Therapy seems painless and effortless...So fortunate to have found this great team of professionals!!!
