Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cardamone "Dr. Cardamone uses a comprehensive integrative approach to pain to improve overall health and function. She does not believe in masking pain issues with chronic use of opiod pain medications as a primary form of treatment. Instead she focuses on identifying the root cause and developing an individual treatment plan approach to facilitate the body's own healing, reduce pain, and help each patient realistically achieve his or her own personal functional goals. 

Dr. Cardamone's unique approach to pain management truly emphasizes patient-centered care in a non-rushed, boutique environment.  With her extensive experience dealing with very complex pain syndromes, her practice approach has demonstrated that the most effective patient outcomes are achieved through utilizing a team approach to treatment plans. As a result, Dr. Cardamone has developed a solid clinical network of only the highest caliber referrals who share her vision and passion for comprehensive, personalized patient care.  "
