We feel that pain patients are emotionally exhausted. In many cases they have seen an orthopedic surgeon, neurosurgeon, physical therapist, family doctor and a neurologist that has promised results but the pain hasn’t improved. After all of this they come to see our pain management physicians and we feel we should treat them with respect. Their pain is genuine and it is up to us as doctors to figure out what treatments will work. We can find things that other people may have missed.
