Our goal is to help you feel better so you can live better.
Spine & Pain Associates, PLLC is committed to providing compassionate care to patients suffering from chronic or acute pain. We strive to provide the best diagnostic services and to offer a comprehensive range of non-surgical treatment options that support the highly personalized pain management plans we develop for our patients.
Co-founders Dr. Bhat and Dr. Dhaliwal are experts in pain management who can deploy a broad spectrum of treatment services to improve patients’ quality of life. In addition to the wide variety of treatment options they personally administer, the doctors devise treatment plans that may include other modalities (physical therapy, chiropractic care, acupuncture, massage, behavioral health and more) as needed to provide pain relief to patients as quickly as possible. By maintaining a network of allied specialists, Spine & Pain Associates is able to define comprehensive, personalized pain treatment plans that are focused on the patient rather than on the convenience for the practice.
Our staff shares our compassion to treat. You will notice the difference on all your visits. At Spine & Pain Associates, PLLC, our mission is to provide the high level of exceptional care that we would want for our own family members.
