I am a full time practicing pain physician specializing in interventional pain procedures as well as medication management of higher risk and legacy patients on opioid medications.
I was in practice in the Seattle area for nearly 3 years before moving to Austin Texas. I am familiar with the medical communities, patient populations, practice standards, and climate of prescribing in Texas and Washington State.
I perform the full range of procedural therapies with a focus on neuromodulation/spinal cord stimulator implants, intrathecal pump management, spinal injections, epidurals, facet injections, nerve blocks, and radiofrequency ablations.
I also have experience managing medications for legacy and higher risk pain patients. These are patients who may be on higher doses of opioids, are on a concurrent benzodiazepine, or may have a history of opioid misuse/aberrancies. Our practice is large, and I also supervise multiple physician assistant and nurse practitioner midlevels.
