History of Orion Pain
Orion Pain was created to be a higher quality medical practice while at the same time keeping the patient’s cost low. This is difficult to do in today’s medical practice where volume is the only way to keep the practice afloat. In my years of working in the greater Phoenix area, I’ve seen pain management practices give extremely high doses of opioids to then turn around and discharge those same patients from the practice when new laws and guidelines were introduced. I’ve seen surgical centers charge thousands of dollars for treatment because the patient hadn’t met their deductible. I’ve seen doctors charge patients several thousands of dollars cash for regenerative medicine treatments. I’ve also been told by a previous practice owner that I should write for obscene opioid amounts because the practice was losing too many patients from appropriate dose reductions.
It was after all of those experiences that I decided to open my own practice, to treat patients how I believe they should be treated. At Orion Pain, you will meet the excellent staff who are willing to go the extra mile to make sure you had a great visit, a physician who will help guide you down the path to healing and greater function, and a company that is doing its best to try and stave off the now well known “opioid crisis”.
Orion Pain was started as an alternative to pain management as usual. We will diagnose to the best of our ability and provide the most up-to-date and effective interventional treatments that will target the source of the pain. These treatments range from simple trigger point injections to as invasive as a spinal cord stimulator for chronic pain. We offer not only traditional therapies using steroids similar to cortisone, but we also offer regenerative medication—both platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cells. In addition to having a wide breadth of interventions available, almost all of the treatment options are covered with insurance, those treatments that aren’t covered are given at the lowest cost in town. We thank you for choosing Orion Pain to help you get back to what you love. Be you again!
