Boston PainCare consists of a team of compassionate physicians that have dedicated their careers to helping patients live pain-free lives. Various specialists work together within their facility to offer patients an integrated approach to pain management. Boston PainCare patients will have the opportunity to consult with specialists in internal medicine, anesthesiology, physical therapy, pain medicine, neurology, psychology, and behavioral therapy before deciding which treatment plan is right for them.
