Care Philosophy

A person with chronic pain should be able to receive an honest, thorough evaluation and medical opinion in order to be diagnosed correctly. You should be given a range of choices for treatment, from conservative to aggressive. I provide specialty treatment in the form of procedures to treat pain, from simple injections, to nerve ablations, to minor surgeries which can dramatically reduce pain, with the goal to help you get your life back.

    in Auburn, WA |
    If you want a car salesman you got it. I found a much more supportive Doctor and staff elsewhere that took care of all my needs. Not just their legal or financial needs.
    in Tacoma, WA |
    Have been seeing Dr. Velling since 2009 for assorted chronic pain. He has never given up and thrown his hands in the air. He has worked so hard and diligently to provide me with the best care and treatment possible. I would never choose another pain management Dr. for my care.
