Using the very best diagnostics available, we first work to find the source of a patient’s pain. Then, we treat pain with the most advanced technologies in the field.

If you among those who suffer from pain, there are treatment options available to help. We provide detailed condition and treatment information to allow patients the ability to make informed decisions.
Acute pain may develop from a recent injury, surgery, or medical illness. This pain may be managed and improve in a short period of time. In some instances, a primary care physician may refer patients with acute pain to a pain management physician to help during healing.
If you have persistent pain — pain that gets worse with time — you may have chronic pain. Primary care physicians may also refer patients to pain management physicians to determine the source and best treatment option for chronic pain.
Cancer pain — related to surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, or the tumor itself — may also be managed by a pain management physician, in conjunction with the referring oncologist.
We see patients by referral only. Our physicians and staff are committed to providing the highest standard of care. Your initial visit with Dr. Karasek, Dr. Alvarado, or Dr. Gonzalez will include a comprehensive evaluation, review of your medical records, and discussion of an individualized diagnostic and therapeutic treatment plan.
Should one of your physicians recommend a procedure, we will assist in obtaining an insurance authorization if necessary.
