Thank you so much! This is the 1st time I've woken up in years without neck pain, stiffness!! I had a cervical nerve block yesterday by Dr. Kinard! Great service, awesome care. Very friendly and professional!
in Lyon, MS |
Dr. Kinard is so kind and down-to-earth. He truly listens to everything you say! I have a lot of health problems and see doctors from almost every specialty. I have to say he is one of my favorites! Wonderful demeanor and bedside manner!
Dr. Kinard and staff surpassed my expectations by far. Both he and NP Teresa Raby actually sit down, LISTEN to you and explain how nerve blocks/braces etc will help. From Christy at the front desk to Stephanie in triage, the entire staff goes above and beyond to help you and it is very rare to find this kind of service anymore. I highly recommend this clinic if you are in need of a pain specialist.
Stone Mountain, GA |
I have been to several orthopedics and neurosurgeons about my neck pain. I did not want to have surgery. A friend recommended Dr. Kinard. His staff scheduled by appointment promptly and were able to answer all my questions. My appointment with Dr Kinard went wonderfully. He finally discussed my condition with me in a way that I truly understood. He took his time and did not leave any questions unanswered. I highly recommend Dr Kinard.

Dr. Kinard says...

His practice at Willow utilizes a comprehensive, multimodal approach to treat a multitude of chronic painful conditions, including procedural, medical, psychotherapeutic, and rehabilitative efforts.  Dr. Kinard has a special interest in, and will focus his general approach toward, achieving his treatment goals (pain relief, improved physical function, enhanced quality of life) while minimizing the role of medications which can result in chemical dependency and addiction.

Dr. Kinard completed additional training after his Anesthesia residency in order to sub-specialize in comprehensive pain management.  He is double Board Certified and is experienced with the most advanced procedural techniques to treat chronic pain of any type or area of the body.  However, he is also certified to evaluate and treat opioid dependency/addiction disorders with outpatient therapy options available.

Dr. Kinard says...

Dr. Kinard cautions all patients seeking specialized treatment for chronic pain to be aware of the background, training, and credentials of any potential health care provider for that service.  The national standard of care for performing most spinal and other minimally invasive procedures to diagnose and treat chronic pain conditions is with the assistance of X-ray guidance DURING the intervention.  Only physicians completing specialized medical training, like Dr. Kinard, are certified to perform x-ray guided spinal procedures.
