Dr. Barkow's Care Philosophy

As a pain physician I am at the forefront of developing and using the latest and best techniques to target my patient's pain. I don't believe in jumping into surgery or an unneeded procedure. Rather, I take a comprehensive approach to my patient's care to target what is at the root of what's causing the pain.
