Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Wachsman "The philosophy at Pain Management Physicians of South Florida is simple: You do not have to suffer. The physicians and staff at Pain Management Physicians of South Florida understand that each patient has a unique response to pain and it is a philosophy that results in an individual treatment plan. Left untreated, pain can become the background static in one's life. It may influence, control and destroy an individual s well-being both physically and emotionally. Our goal is to eliminate the pain generators by identifying those pathologic conditions or triggers that contribute to a painful state. If the pain generators cannot be eradicated, a tailored management plan is introduced to allow patients to take control of their pain."

DR. Wachsman is an extraordinary pain management specialist because he always seems to emphasize minimal to optimal interventions, avoiding the pitfalls of addictive or habit forming interventions as only an extreme option. He is as concerned about behavioral change to reduce pain in coordination with medicinal options. He is focused on the subject of the consultation - the whole person - not just the object - the painful origins and manifestation of discomfort. He is one awesome facilitator of

I have been treated by Dr. Wachman for over three years. I have severe arthritis in almost every major joint as well as throughout my spine from my neck to my tailbone/ Dr. Wachsman has given the appropriate treatment for whatever is giving me the most pain at the time. Je has also given good advice on certain exercises do to (and NOT to do) fo my ailments), and also when over-the-counter meds might be helpful, to compliment the RX medications.

Dr. Seth Wachsman is an excellent Doctor, as he listens to all your issues, and complaints. He also does not rush to get to the next patient. He takes his time with you, and addresses all your questions. He also will go out of his way to call you if need be after hours, and fits you in to his already tight schedule for procedures, and or appointments. I would recommend him to anyone in need of of a Great Pain Specialist!

Only dr in 15 who diagnosed and eliminated my pain
in Boca Raton, FL |
Called to make an appointment, receptionist was very rood on the phone, and asked me what is my first language, implying she can not understand "accent". She was very rood and hung up the phone. Incident took place Tuesday, October 25 around 11:45 AM. We will call the referring doctor's office to make sure they no longer refer any additional patients to this office.

I would recommend Dr. Wachsman to anyone looking for pain relief. I was having severe back pain when I went to see him and he helped me to be able to walk without pain.
New York, NY |
I would not go back to this office ever again. The office is over booked. The staff does not communicate well to the patient. They have the nerve to charge 100.00 if you don't cancel your appointment in 24 hours before.

DR. WACHSMAN IS A KNOWLEDGEABLE AND CARING DOCTOR. HIS STAFF IS FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL.
