Doctor Quote

Pain is an experience unique to each individual affected by multiple contributing factors, including medical illness, psychological issues, life stressors, financial constraints and previous experiences with health care providers. For this reason, I address each patient's pain condition with a comprehensive, multi-modal approach which includes therapy, medications, and interventional procedures. Management of various PAIN CONDITIONS is done emphasizing the importance of: • Empathy - most important aspect in treatment of pain patient. • Concreteness of Diagnosis • Patient Education • Use of Multimodality Treatments- Physical Therapy, Use of Narcotic, Non-Narcotic, and Non-Addicting Pain Medication; Interventional Procedures: Spine Injections and minimally invasive procedures • Close Follow-Ups & Treatments • Patient Cooperation, Compliance, and Active Participation in the Treatment Plan
