      Dr. Ajakwe, and his team, care. Simply stated, they do what ever they must do to ensure their patients receive the best care. From the moment you walk in and deal with their administration, and through all the stages of the healing process, they take the time to understand how to best resolve your personal issues, then facilitate a program custom suited to your specific needs. I've been extremely impressed with their "care and service" and would highly recommend their organization.

      In lots of pain due to a ruptured disk pinching a nerve. Referred by cousin, so they squeezed me in right away. Prescribed some meds to help till I get auth for epidural. Caring & thorough, going back Friday.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Ajakwe's Care Philosophy

      Our philosophy in treating pain conditions is rooted in the belief that Pain is an experience unique to each individual. Our physicians, Dr. Tatevossian and Ajakwe, are board certified and fellowship trained, and will individually evaluate, diagnose, and offer all current pain management treatment options available. Recent advances in minnimally invasive surgical procedures and implantations as well as traditional interventional injections are performed to manage difficult to treat and complex pain conditions. Conditions such as chronic neck and back pain not responsive to treatment or surgery are effectively managed at CPP using multiple modalities including: medications, rehabilitation therapy, injections, minor surgery, psychology care, and alternative medicine. Our office location in the famous Disney Family Cancer Center in Burbank, California allows us to provide multiple services all under one roof. At CPP, we want to be your ally in fighting chronic pain.
