Who we are:
We are a team of multidisciplinary providers who are passionate about helping individuals navigate their pain journey to live full and meaningful lives. Our empathic team will take time to get to know you and create an individualized pain management plan that takes into consideration biological, psychological and social factors that may influence your pain. Our skilled team of providers uses both medicine and non-medicine treatments, and evidenced-based interventions to help you feel understood, validated and in more control of your pain. Our talented group of providers come from various medical backgrounds including physiatry (rehabilitation medicine), health/pain psychology, podiatry (foot/lower extremity pain), nursing, physical and occupational therapy, and care coordination.
The Rehab and Pain Center takes a comprehensive, multidisciplinary and coordinated approach to pain management.
Biomedical treatments include various classes of medications and interventional procedures, such as injections. Your provider will work closely with you to establish an individualized treatment plan based on your pain condition, medical factors/co-morbidities, physical exam and other factors. It is our belief and philosophy that there is always a treatment modality that can help alleviate your pain or increase your functioning. We will also work closely with you to review the potential costs and benefits of all biomedical treatments.

What can you expect at your first visit?
All new patients will attend an initial one-hour orientation class that will provide information about the purpose and goals of the center, along with the multitude of treatments that are offered. Your insurance will typically cover the cost of this orientation class. During the class we will also screen for other factors that may impact or influence your experience of pain such as anxiety, depression and other stressors. This screening is critically important in creating an individualized and effective treatment plan. Additionally, the class is an opportunity for you to hear about ALL of the various treatments offered through the Rehab and Pain Center. Following your visit we will coordinate all your pain management treatments, communicate your treatment plan with your providers and help you navigate the various facets of your care.
