Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Antoniou "EMU Health treats individuals, not just "pain", and we do so with kindness, attentiveness and the utmost respect you deserve.  We offer today's most advanced interventional pain treatments as well as highly specialized pain management. 

We are dedicated to helping our patients regain healthier, happier and more productive lives. We cater to patients suffering from pain related to a variety of medical conditions (i.e. accidental injuries, arthritis, back surgery pain, bone pain, cancer pain, low back pain, neck pain, neuroalgia, peripheral neuropathy, etc)

We work collaboratively with the area physicians, specialists and other healthcare providers to ensure your care is coordinated on multiple levels.  Any other conditions you have are always factored into your overall pain management plan.  

It is our goal to help our patients take their lives back through effective pain management.  It is not just about the quality of care; it's about quality of life."
