Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lao "Alpine Advanced Pain Management's philosophy respects the reality of each patient's pain. We understand that pain can be debilitating and that only the patient can truly experience its severity. Thus, we accept that pain is what the patient explains it to be.

Alpine Advanced Pain Management brings advanced pain management services to San Diego and East County and carries out the mission to improve the quality of life of each patient through exceptional care tailored to every patient's needs.

Chronic pain is a serious affliction that often affects many aspects of a patient's life: psychological and emotional well-being, work, relationships, finances, and substance dependence. Our doctors work together to take a mindful approach to pain management that offers comprehensive healing."
