Welcome To The Pain Management Center

The Pain Management Center was founded by Dr. Richard Docherty in 1993 with the goal of providing expert care and  valuable resources to those in pain. While breakthrough technologies and medications have allowed significant  advances in the  treatment of pain, certain realities remain the same: pain is complex and its effects can be vast and far-reaching, affecting not  only the individuals who suffer from it, but also those around them. Therefore the management of pain, by its very nature, is  multi-faceted and requires a different type and level of care than perhaps any other field of medicine. At The Pain Management  Center we understand this reality and take great pride in providing attentive, compassionate care to each and every patient  who walks through our door.

Our Mission: To provide a multi-disciplinary approach to diagnosing and treating acute and chronic pain disorders with compassion
