Pain Management Services
...Because everyone who lives with chronic pain is different.
Effective management of chronic pain occurs when there is a good therapeutic alliance between patient and doctor. I strive to put patients back in charge of their health care by listening closely to their pain experience and then providing treatment options, education, and coping skills. The end result is that patients lead more productive lives, have a better quality of life, and eventually become people again.
Pain Management Services offer patients suffering from chronic and acute pain, strategies developed by Pain Management Specialists to help manage their condition.
Our specialists follow a multi-disciplinary and scientific approach when dealing with various painful conditions and our Pain Management Service integrates experts from Pain Medicine with Neurosurgeons, Orthopaedics, Radiology, Rheumatology, Psychology and Physiotherapy to offer patients rapid access to assessment, investigation and treatment of both acute and chronic pain.

We realize patients need to cancel their appointments, however we require a 24-hour notification of the cancellation to enable us to offer your appointment to another patient.
If you fail to cancel the appointment you may be billed a cancellation fee payable upon your next visit.
What to expect on your first visit:
Once you have been scheduled an appointment with one of our physicians, it is very important that you provide our office with any past medical records pertaining to the reason we will be seeing you for. This should include any films, ie, MRI scans, CT scans, plain x-rays etc. You may request your primary care physician to forward this information to us, or you may bring it with you to your initial appointment.
It is also necessary for you to bring a list of current medications you are taking and their directions.
We anticipate thirty minutes to register you on your first visit. To avoid coming thirty minutes early you may print your paper work off and have them filled out when you arrive for your appointment.
One of our physicians will then see you. He will interview you regarding your symptoms. He will may perform a neurological examination. This clinical examination will include testing of your strength, sensation, reflexes, and coordination.
In some instances further diagnostic tests may need to be ordered before the physician can give the patient a diagnosis. Our office staff will arrange for these tests to be scheduled for you at Memorial MRI and Diagnostic.
