Doctor Quote

"I have been treating pain for many years both as an anesthesiologist and an interventional pain physician. My specialty is in diagnosing and treating neck and back pain, which may also manifest itself as radiating down the arm or legs. As an interventional pain physician, I specialize in minimally invasive procedures, including injections into and around the spine to treat the source of pain. The entire staff at Precision Pain Care is focused on your health, wellness and productivity. We believe in a conservative approach that enables pain relief, and allows the body an opportunity to heal. And, if all conservative measures have been exhausted, we work closely with many local area surgeons."
