About our Staff at Advanced Pain Medical Center
We Always Bring You Comprehensive Care
Sometimes, it may take a long time to get your pain treated. But at Advanced Pain Medical Center, we use tailor-made plans to ensure that we are treating the cause of your pain rather than just the symptoms. Our team takes a multi-modal, elegant approach to pain care, and we provide comprehensive care, with on-site treatments. Our innovative therapies are convenient, and we have sedation on request.
We don’t aim to make you feel “medicated” by pushing pills. Instead, we strive to improve your health by addressing the real problem. Our team analyzes your symptoms, history, imaging, and exam to isolate the underlying cause. Once we’ve identified it, we then create a customized, individual, multimodal plan just for you. Such an approach allows better results with fewer side effects and risks.
