WHY I CHOSE PAIN MANAGEMENT
“While working in the emergency department for twelve years, I treated many patients suffering from acute and chronic pain. I then became interested in helping people relieve their pain with procedures or treatments as first line therapy, instead of temporary results from ER visits. Interventional pain management gives me the opportunity to help patients combat their pain at the source and use medication only as adjunct therapy.”
