Does Your Pain Doctor Care About You AND Your Pain?

Posted on December 8, 2020

If you’ve never consulted with a pain management physician for relief from chronic pain, you may think that all pain doctors are alike. But when it comes to personalized, effective treatment for pain condition, nothing could be farther from the truth.

With thousands of pain specialists available throughout the United States, how do you know what to look for in a pain doctor when you need relief from your individual type of pain?

To start, find a pain physician who’s board-certified in pain medicine / interventional pain management. Additional certifications such as anesthesiology or physical medicine and rehabilitation will help to provide even more benefit for your pain relief needs.

The more experience and expertise a pain physician has, the greater the potential for accurately diagnosing your pain condition, even when finding the source of your discomfort may be a challenge.

But it’s not only about credentials and experience; when you’re in pain, you want to interact with a physician who is compassionate and thoroughly addresses all of your concerns. One of the biggest complaints among patients is doctors who rush through an appointment, leaving little time for questions.

Being in pain is difficult enough; don’t make it worse by visiting a doctor who seems to have no empathy or patience, as this only adds to the discomfort you already feel. It is important to consult with a physician who genuinely cares about your pain and works with you to overcome the effects of your symptoms.
