Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Olvera "As a board-certified and fellowship-trained interventional pain specialist, David Adrian Olvera, MD, enjoys hearing how his work helps patients overcome chronic pain and improve their lives and relationships."It's rewarding when you have family members come back and say, 'Before we met you, it was difficult to be around this person. Now we have them back and we enjoy them again.' They get their quality of life back that was missing for years."Dr. Olvera performs injection therapy for patients who are suitable candidates, along with nerve blocks, epidural injections (under fluoroscope when necessary for patient safety), spinal cord simulator trials and other advanced treatments to relieve pain."I provide personal care and make sure patients feel that their needs are always addressed at every visit.""
