Dr. Jerry Sobel is a board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation also know as Physiatry and has over 25 years or experience treating both acute and chronic pain syndromes. He specializes in the treatment of sciatica, low back and neck pain, shoulder pain, hip pain and knee pain.

Dr. Jerry Sobel takes his time evaluating each patient individually and performs a focused history and physical exam and will review all available diagnostic tests such as X-rays, MRI, CT scans, EMGs and laboratory reports. He will then educate each person about his/her diagnosis and discuss the treatment options available. It is only through knowledge that a person can really make an informed decision about what treatment(s) they want to pursue. Dr. Sobel does not tout the latest and greatest such as stem cell treatment because he believes that treatment of pain should be based on science, best practice clinical guidelines and over 25 years of experience treating a very large variety of acute and chronic pain syndromes.
