Judith E. Blake, PA-C

“Chronic pain management is a complex issue, and we must approach it from different angles. Sometimes that means medication if needed, interventional procedures, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and support services to help with the effects chronic pain can have on a patient’s quality of life.
There can be a lot of anxiety for a patient about telling their story and wondering if it’s falling on deaf ears. I am committed to developing a rapport with patients and assuring them that I’m listening and that I care. I love to see my patients take charge of their health, and to start to see the results from the treatments we provide. It’s so rewarding to be a part of their journey from feeling overwhelmed and hopeless, to enjoying a quality of life beyond the limits of chronic pain.”
