We are a group of dedicated physicians who sought to fill a gap in pain care when we started our practice in 2007. After years of treating patients with chronic pain in a hospital setting, we came together to find a better patient-centric concept to treat and manage pain. We are extremely proud of our innovative, patient-centered approach and are the only pain management Patient Centered Specialty Practice (PCSP) in Massachusetts recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).
Our team includes highly skilled physicians, board-certified in pain management, anesthesiology, neurology, psychiatry, and sleep medicine, along with behavioral therapists, nurse practitioners, and other staff members who work together to develop a successful treatment plan for each patient in our care.
