Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Menard "We take a deep and personal interest in patients well being. We are an interventional pain clinic primarily, not a refill clinic, and as such we work closely with patients' primary care physicians. Once patients are stable and the best we can make them, we ask their primary physicians to provide routine medication refills. We also work closely with various consultants specialties for an all around approach to pain management. We offer the best care possible, but we can not, and do not, offer miracle cures. There aren't any. Dr. Menard is not someone who sugar coats problems, he is direct and honest, which may ruffle some feathers, but he thinks that is the most honest way to treat people, as that is the way he wants people to treat him. Dr. Menard had his first migraine when he was 12 and has undergone spine surgeries, so he knows what pain feels like, but he also knows that you can work through these too."
