Dr. J. Tobias Musser is a board certified Physiatrist (Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Physician) with specialty fellowship training in Interventional Pain Management (IPM) and a specific interest in spine and musculoskeletal conditions. IPM is an area of medicine devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of pain-related disorders. Residing in the Atlanta area he is active in pain management advocacy and healthcare education outside of his clinical duties at the Shepherd Center. He also has a keen interest in biomedical engineering. "As a Pain Management Specialist, I'm concerned about my patients' ability to function and their quality of life - facets of life which can be limited by pain. One of my roles is to help develop a treatment plan to relieve, reduce, or management my patients' pain and to help them return to everyday activities quickly without surgery or heavy reliance on medication. I typically coordinate care through an interdisciplinary team of health professionals. However, I see my main role is to provide health education to my patients and EMPOWER them to become more involved with their care, to make lifestyle, diet, and fitness changes, and to become more involved with becoming/remaining healthy. I consider the patient as the star player of their team." -- Dr. J. T. Musser

Dr. Musser has been an excellent practitioner who has meticulously investigated any pain related issues that I have had. As a testament to this Dr. Musser was the first to discover that my cancer had spread to my spine, despite my neurosurgeon claiming it was only a lesion. Apart from his skills as a professional Dr. Musser has also demonstrated wonderful bedside manner, and makes sure to keep me up do date with any recent solutions and/or discoveries even beyond my pain issues (i.e. cancer).

Dr Musser is just an incredible doctor. He spends whatever time needed to really listen and discuss options so I know I am getting the best possible care. Dr Musser has kept me mobile at 87 with severe arthritis and two terriIble knees. He keeps my arthritis pain at a minimum and my confidence in him keeps me from being afraid of future pain and immobility. He is always on top of the latest research and medical developments. His personal concern for his patients is unmatched.

My experience with Dr. Musser has been exceptional! He is an excellent Dr. who cares about his patients, has empathy, and listens. He actually reads the MRI you bring him, then compares it to the report to make sure nothing was missed. He is very comprehensive and was the first pain doctor who every expressed concern for me as a whole, not just about my pain. We are working together on a wellness program and have set GOALS for 2017. Very excited to be working with him!

Dr. Musser has gone out of his way to help me. He takes his time with me and explains everything to me, if I need him to. I am so happy I have found him. I drive from out of town to see him for appts. His staff is also super nice and attentive. I would highly recommend him. He is one of the best docs I have seen since my accident almost 10 years ago.
