Impacting the lives of over five million Americans, fibromyalgia is among the most common chronic pain disorders affecting patients. Though fibromyalgia often results in widespread pain and tenderness in the body, the condition can be challenging to diagnose and frustrating for those affected by it. Research indicates that the condition heightens the sensation of pain by impacting the manner in which the brain interprets pain signals. The symptoms of fibromyalgia often occur following psychological stress, surgery, physical trauma, or infections. Our skilled team at Tricity Pain Associates is pleased to bring modern solutions to the Round Rock and South Austin, TX communities to help patients manage the symptoms of fibromyalgia.
"I found Dr Kim to be honest and to-the-point. I'm particularly analytical, and I was getting intolerant of the advice and information I was receiving about my injury. Dr. Kim went through every word of my MRI result with me so I had full understanding. He was very matter-of-fact, which is what I wanted. I get the picture he has a very good read on his patients. Fortunately, I did not have to go down the surgical path, on recommendation from Dr.Kim. And I do feel better now."- D.L. / Google / May 10, 2021

"Dr Kim and his staff are compassionate and caring on a level rarely found in this field. Rather than just simply prescribing cookie-cutter pain drugs , he and his team approach the whole individual to positively and effectively develop a plan to manage YOUR pain. He is kind and empathetic and takes the time to get to know you and really treat you- the person. I have felt so much better in the last 6 months than I have in years.

"The workers at the front desk are super nice and you're never in the waitingroom too long. It's a small office but it's very nice and super clean! I love that they stay covid-ready. Also Doctor Kim and his assistant are super nice! They joke with you and laugh with you unlike most other doctors."- A.M. / Google / Apr 30, 2021
"Dr Kim was awesome! His bedside manner was amazing, he listened, he didn’t just hear, he listened. He explained everything in detail. He reviewed old and new records of mine and images and took heed of area of interest. I’m not a simple case, but he advised me on all necessary next steps for me.
