We believe the first step in getting you back to your life is providing an environment suitable for healing.  Part of the way we do that is by creating a multi-disciplinary team of providers dedicated to your care.  Our Nurse Practitioners (NP’s) and Physicians Assistants (PA’s) work closely with our Pain Physicians, Chiropractors, Behavioral Health Specialists, Surgeons and Naturopaths to develop a comprehensive care plan tailored to your diagnosis.  We believe this team approach will deliver the very best results for you by combining the expertise of those various specialties.

This will also create a good deal of convenience for you as a patient since we can offer these services under one roof.

We are humbled by the trust you have placed in us during your time of need.  We strive to get you back to do the things and people you love – just as we would our own Mom or Dad.

Working Together to Fight Your Pain

Our medical team works together to bring the patient the highest level of care possible. When you visit you will be greeted by a medical assistant, who will gather critical medical information such as your pulse, temperature, medication information, and any medical concerns you have. The medical assistant will pass this information to your physician assistant or nurse practitioner who will then evaluate you.

The nurse practitioner or physician assistant will consult with you on your specific pain condition, perform a physical examination, gather additional medical information, educate you on your diagnosis and treatment options, and answer any questions you have.

After the consultation, they will inform your physician and relay the necessary information for the physician to evaluate your personal medical case. Your physician will review, oversee, and approve your individualized treatment plan to be carried out during future office visits.

If you are a candidate for a procedure, the physician will perform that procedure in the surgery center on your appointed date.  Depending upon the clinic location, you could be treated by an MD or a DO.

Rest assured, every physician at Arizona Pain adheres to the highest of standards; each is fellowship trained and double board-certified.

A successful medical team often works as though in a relay race, passing crucial information on to the next team member. By utilizing the medical expertise of multiple individuals, you can receive the highest level of care possible.
