Telehealth Appointments

For the safety and convenience of our patients, we have successfully embarked on offering telehealth appointments. The appointments offered via a secure video chat or phone call allow patients to receive medical treatment from pain faculty physicians while adhering to federal guidelines on maintaining 6 feet of social distance and minimizing exposure risk to COVID-19. Patients interested in scheduling a telehealth appointment should talk with their doctor.

Our Mission

Our mission is to deliver the highest quality of clinical care to our patients, to guide the future development of our discipline, to train the next generation of leaders in pain medicine, and to facilitate ground-breaking discoveries in clinical, translational, and basic research.

Our Goals

Our overarching goal is to develop and implement a safe and effective treatment plan for each patient that will ultimately lead to an improved quality of life.

We strive to focus on each patient’s unique pain needs. Our collaborative approach involves our patients, their primary providers, and other specialists in arriving at the best treatment strategies for their pain.

Finding the best treatments for your pain often involves specialists such as:

  • occupational therapists
  • mental health providers
  • neurosurgeons
  • general surgeons
  • interventional options
  • multimodal therapy
