We don’t manage pain. We treat it.

I have been seeing Dr Garcia or Denise for a little over 2 years now. My experience has been great. They are not a place that just pushes opioid medicine.


Everyone was kind and helpful. I was treated with the utmost care. The personal attention was greatly appreciated.

Both Doctor and Staff are very warm and friendly. I had bursitis in both hips for years and used a cane. After 1(one) treatment the pain is gone. No longer use a cane.

-Velda Mattews

Great bed side manners. The procedure done on my neck was painless and the improvement in my symptoms is about 85%. Now we are going to address other areas of my back pain.

Dr. Cannella was one of the most informative and caring doctors I have ever met! He understood the nature of my chronic pain condition, and although he personally couldn’t help me, he referred me to another doctor who is to his knowledge the only doctor in the Houston area that could. Time well spent!!

Dr. Garcia is a very caring & thorough doctor. I was in a car accident nearly 2 years ago & have had chronic pain ever since. Although I’m not pain free, Dr Garcia is trying multiple approaches to get to the bottom of the pain. I finally feel hopeful that I may be able to enjoy normal activities again
