Stay at Home order protects patients’ rights to see their Providers

  We are currently working with the Governor’s office to keep patients in pain out of emergency rooms. The situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to evolve, and changes occur rapidly. Please know, the health and safety of our patients, their families, and team members remains our top priority. At AZ Pain Doctors, we are ensuring the safest possible environment. We take these proactive precautions to protect our patients, team members, and the communities we serve:
  1. We are practicing social distancing by offering virtual appointments. If you wish to be seen in person, we are able to accommodate you.
  2. All people who enter the clinic, including all staff and patients, are screened for coronavirus infection. Anyone with a cough, fever, symptoms of infection or known exposure will not be allowed in the clinic.
  3. We are limiting the number of people who enter our clinic. No one is allowed to accompany you unless you require physical assistance. If you would like a someone to listen to your visit you are welcome to call them and place them on speakerphone.
  4. We are having patients come directly into the exam room. If the exam room isn’t available, patients wait outside of our lobby in alternative places such as your car. We will call you on your cell phone or other number you provide when the room is ready.
  5. As always, we clean every patient room after every patient visit. We are also cleaning high traffic areas frequently.
  6. As always, staff sanitizes their hands immediately before and after working with patients. We do not physically touch patients without a new set of disposable gloves.
  7. We have lengthened our appointment times and limited the number of patients who are seen per day so we can rigorously follow all of these items.
The phone lines are very busy, please be patient while we do our best to call you back within 24 hours.

AZ Pain Doctors

Our Practice Philosophy

Chronic pain can be frustrating and debilitating. At AZ Pain Doctors, we understand the significant impact that pain can have on your quality of life. Oftentimes, patients are given powerful narcotic medications without a thorough diagnostic evaluation, or any other evidence-based treatments. Our practice philosophy is to first determine a diagnosis for your pain. It is very difficult to effectively treat pain without knowing the actual pain generator.

After the providers at AZ Pain Doctors have determined an appropriate diagnosis, we will then formulate a treatment plan based on our philosophy which prioritizes treatments best supported by evidence in medical literature and best practices.

Currently, medical studies favor a multidisciplinary approach for treating patients suffering from pain. A multidisciplinary approach involves using a combination of modalities such as physical therapy, chiropractic care, medications, and interventional pain management procedures. By using a team approach to your care, we here at AZ Pain Doctors are optimizing the likelihood of successful pain reduction in our patients lives.
