College roommates operate fastest growing Pain Clinic in Arizona

(Scottsdale, AZ) – Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane will assist in a ribbon-cutting ceremony on July 23, 2009 to celebrate the addition of an on-site procedure center to the fastest growing pain clinic in the Arizona. Arizona Pain Specialists saw more than 3,000 patients during June utilizing a comprehensive model including interventional pain treatments, chiropractic, biofeedback, relaxation therapy, on-site physio-rehab, open MRI and now a procedure center.

Dr. McJunkin explains, “we have provided interventional pain treatment procedures that have helped thousands of patients, but with the addition of the on-site procedure center we have the potential to save patients out of pocket costs in most cases.”

Dr. Lynch tells the story of how he and Dr. McJunkin were freshman in college together and despite studying emergency medicine and psychiatry, their lives changed when Dr. Lynch’s mother-in-law was diagnosed with cancer. When the enthusiastic medical student researched and found ways to treat her cancer pain, he suggested to Dr. McJunkin that they change specialties and open an inter-disciplinary pain clinic. Settling in Scottsdale and opening their doors only twenty months ago, the clinic has experienced 600% growth in the last year. The clinic hosts a website, which features an online textbook and gets over 35,000 page views a month.
