Evaluation and Pain Mapping Reviews
"Dr. Kim is the first pain management that I've ever gone to. I was really nervous before my first treatment, but after the procedure I felt much more at ease and would highly recommend him to anyone. His staff is great and he has a great bedside manner. Literally just waiting for my second procedure to begin and I'm grateful I was referred to him."- A.S. / Yelp / Oct 22, 2019

"Dr. Kim helped my mother with her chronic pain. We have been to several other pain medicine physicians in Austin, and all have disappointed my mom's high standards in her physicians. Unlike other doctors, Dr. Kim took my mom's pain seriously and took the time to listen and learn and treat it effectively."- D.C. / Yelp / Jan 25, 2018
"Dr. Kim has been a tremendous help with my peace of mind around my back injury. When another doctor was pushing me suspiciously toward surgery, Dr. Kim recommended more conservative pain management that has worked out great! Great doctor for veterans if you need help outside the VA. Highly recommended!"- N.B. / Google / Oct 14, 2019

The Assessment process
During the evaluation phase of your assessment, we will spend time diagnosing and understanding your specific condition and symptoms during a one-on-one consultation. A physical exam and a comprehensive health history will be conducted during this phase. One of our healthcare professionals will then perform pain mapping, which utilizes a special device that delivers mild electrical pulses into the body to determine precisely where your pain is originating. While the electrical signals generate a mild tingling, most patients do not experience any discomfort. Once your evaluation and pain mapping is complete, our team will review your recommended treatment options, which may include nerve blocks, medication, physical therapy, or other modalities.
