Michelle Dang, M.D.

"It is my philosophy to manage chronic pain utilizing a multidisciplinary and integrative approach."

Pain management is more than just treating the symptoms; it is about the patient being able to lead their best lives using resources such as medications, interventions, surgeries, physical therapy, and movement therapy.

I am dedicated to helping patients receive the treatment that they need so that they can enjoy a positive and fulfilling lifestyle. I understand that I am only one part of the patient’s treatment team. That team starts with their primary care physician and includes other physician specialists and medical professionals.

One of the most important aspects of working with a team is communication. I will efficiently communicate with the team so that we all know the treatment plan. Working together, we will provide exceptional medical care for patients in the community.

I would be honored to have the opportunity to help provide care to your patients. If you have any further questions for me, please do not hesitate to email or call.
