The Total Pain Care physicians and staff have been serving patients of Mississippi and West Alabama for over 18 years in the field of pain medicine. We are privately owned, and we treat our patients like family!

The care for our patients takes place at our one-of-a-kind, single-specialty ambulatory surgery center and clinic, dedicated solely to pain management. This offers patients ease of access, reduced cost due to an outpatient setting, and ample parking. All phone calls are answered live, and in most cases, we can see new patients the same day they call.

Both physicians have hospital privileges at all Meridian-area hospitals, and they partner with local sports medicine teams.
