Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Greenspan "I take care of people in pain. I am motivated to help my patients, to give them a better experience than others they have encountered, and to give them more relief and functionality than they had before they met me. There is a lot of emotion tied up with chronic pain: depression, anxiety, and guilt over not being able to fulfill their responsibilities. My patients tell me that I am a good listener; often, I am the first doctor who believed them when they said they were in severe pain."
