Pain Medicine | Male

Biography

I care deeply and passionately about suffering. I try to use all modalities available to the patient and myself mostly dictated to degree by insurance. Rules implemented by the CDC have been utilized regarding opiates. More importantly what I have learned in 30 years of practicing medicine!! The narcotic agreement is iron clad and there is little room for error. Discharge is immediate and only in certain cases is one act of forgiveness secondary to ignorance accepted. I am neither an over-prescriber or a block/procedure shop. You are not cars. You are human beings. I am different in a good way. After all what do we know about anything until we have experienced it ourselves. I know about PAIN!!! MY BEST!! Dr. Faulkner

    I find Dr. Faulkner to be both kind and compassionate. I travel about 2 hrs. round trip to see Dr. and he is worth every minute, he's the best I have found and there have been quite a few others that I have tried closer to home but did not find any of them to be up to my standards.
