WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO WORK IN PAIN MANAGEMENT?
The opportunity to help patients with chronic pain at the root of their problems is very appealing to me. When patients get treated for their pain symptoms without regard to its cause, they usually end up being poorly treated. It’s very rewarding and meaningful to help their condition by treating the cause of their problem and not just prescribing opioids to them. Opioids are very well known for their multiple negative side effects and consequences.
WHAT ARE THE BIGGEST CHALLENGES OF THIS FIELD OF MEDICINE?
Insurance coverage of procedures used to treat different pain conditions is very poor, and it’s sad knowing that patients are being denied the services they need to treat their condition. Also, many times patients have more than one condition causing chronic pain, but their insurance only allows treatment of one condition at a time. That can make the treatment less effective.
WHAT’S THE MOST REWARDING PART OF YOUR JOB?
My greatest reward is when a patient can be weaned down from their opioids because their pain is no longer present.
WHAT DOES YOUR DAILY ROUTINE LOOK LIKE?
My daily routine is very simple. I do procedures in our ambulatory surgery center every day, but I also see patient follow-ups and evaluate new patients in our clinic on a daily basis.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE PAST-TIMES?
I love to do sightseeing trips with my family, and I also like to play golf when the weather is nice.
