Care Philosophy

Chronic pain is a complex medical condition which can affect the physical, mental, social, and economic well-being of patients, and their loved ones. I believe in using a multi-disciplinary care approach in treating my patients. This includes evaluating and diagnosing patients, and then developing a plan of care. Many times, this may require; Lab work, Imaging studies, such as MRI, Cat scan, Bone scan, or x-rays, and EMG/NCS. Once a diagnosis is confirmed, we then can put together a treatment plan which may include a combination of the following ; Injections, medications, physical therapy, psychological counseling, spinal cord stimulation, intrathecal pain pump, or if necessary, referral to a specialist such as neurosurgeon, orthopedic surgeon, rheumatologist, psychologist, or endocrinologist.
