Other Services


  • FREE Pain Clinic of Southwest Florida

  • The philosophy of the Southwest Florida Free Pain Clinic is to treat patients using a Functional Medicine model – treating the whole person: physical, emotional, spiritual, and social. We work with our patients to develop an individual treatment plan to address their pain and other issues at the root causes. We do not just treat the symptoms. We take the time and effort to provide the medical and social case management necessary to restore patient health. We also address nutrition and lifestyle issues that affect healing and treatment success.
