    A pain management specialist is a physician with advanced knowledge and training in diagnosing and treating pain. These doctors do not come from one particular discipline, but rather use their respective backgrounds to contribute a varied approach to the field of pain management.
    These specialists use their different skills and training in pain management to treat pain stemming from different causes - whether it's neuropathic pain or headache, or the result of injury, a surgical procedure, cancer or another illness.
    Pain management specialists are primarily trained as anesthesiologists, physiatrists, interventional radiologists, neurologists, osteopaths, or primary care physicians.

This dr did an exam on me that wasn't even complete! An evaluation takes at least 4-6 hours that took him 45 minutes! All the tests were not performed and what few where wasn't even the right and accurate raitings for what he was supposed to do! Example: back flexion should be performed while laying on the ground after examining the shoulders,the spine,tenderness in the disks and spine, and them the person being examined has to do like a sit up and come up until they fill discomfort then it is measured to see how far you can use your back! This was not performed correctly as instructed by the state exam testing for individuals with injuries! He doesn't person according to state laws only by the way he choices to! I would never recommend or see this dr unless you want to risk your health and injuries worse!
