“I became very interested in interventional pain management while completing my internship after medical school. Being able to help people get out of pain and back to their normal lives was something that really appealed to me. Today, as a board-certified anesthesiologist and interventional pain management specialist, I offer a wide variety of nonsurgical solutions for chronic or acute pain caused by all types of injuries or disease conditions. In addition, I make my specialized care convenient and cost-effective for patients by performing procedures in the comfort and safety of my state-of-the-art office.”
