I have lived with acute pain for about 5 yrs., I have been to other pain mgmts, but, they can't compare to Atl Pain. It has been a pleasure to come to. Dr. Choi, and the staff there. They really make you feel like you are more than just a patients name on a chart, more than just a number.They Listen, Hear, and Actually Care about how you feel physically and emotionally.They don't rush you in and out, they take the time, to get to know YOU, the person.If you are looking for a Dr. who will give you the care that you need and deserve, then, please give them a call. You will be happy you did.Kathy E.

My wife and I see different Doctors in this practice, she sees Dr. Sheahan and I see Dr. Rollins. These are the two most conservative and caring people you could hope to deal with. They both are able to manage our pain with minimum meds. in my case and very few oral meds in my wife's situation. Saw the worst in the past and now we have been there since 2003 and feel like we are with the best!
Tips & Advices
Several forms of pain management exist that are not approved typically treated by physicians or covered by health insurance plans. These include therapies like acupuncture, for example, or herbal preparations sold in stores. Before beginning any form of treatment or medication not approved by a doctor, it’s a good idea to still reach out to a physician or expert in alternative medicine for advice, or conduct some research online first.
Managing pain in children can be complicated, as kids may have more difficulty communicating their pain to doctors. Children also need to be more carefully monitored when taking most medications.
Health insurance might cover a selection of approved pain management therapies. Every insurance plan is different, so patients should check with their provider to make sure.
Patients might be instructed to continue therapy at home, either through regular exercise or specific treatment. Some people also find that getting frequent rest, taking warm baths or avoiding certain foods, for example, can help manage pain.
Side effects depend on the exact drugs and dosages used, as well as the disease being treated and many other factors. Some pain-relieving drugs, especially opioids, are known to cause drowsiness. Many antidepressants also cause a variety of adverse effects. Doctors must work closely with patients to minimize these side effects in the course of treatment.
