Comprehensive Centers for Pain Management


Comprehensive Centers for Pain Management is devoted to providing pain relief, whether the source of your pain is your back (including herniated disc problems), neck, sciatica, arthritis, cancer, or other sites.

First, we listen to you to better understand your symptoms. Next, in consultation with your current physician, our pain management specialists will review your medical history and provide further diagnostic tests as necessary. We then proceed with a treatment plan individualized to your specific needs.

Comprehensive Centers for Pain Management offers the services of several experienced anesthesiologists, pain management specialists, and therapists. Each brings unique knowledge of procedural techniques, pharmacology, and physiology to provide the interventional pain management program appropriate for each patient. In addition, a clinical psychologist is available to provide support as needed.
