C. ANN CONN, MD

My primary goal is to provide comprehensive, state-of-the-art care in an environment of comfortable compassion. I am triple Board Certified in Neurology, Pain Management, and Headache Medicine.  An important role I play in the care of patients — particularly during the ongoing opioid crisis — is to treat those with a history of addiction and pain issues.

STEVE LEE, MD

It is imperative that we look beyond the symptoms to see the real cause of the pain and discomfort. I take the time for a thorough diagnostic exam. After I have this information, I can then work with my patient to create a plan of action to help alleviate as much pain as possible.”

DAVID J. DYKES JR, FNP-C

The words ‘chronic pain’ can be two of the most painful words for a patient to say. Being an RN prior to a nurse practitioner afforded me the experience of providing one-on-one care with these patients. My personal dedication is to provide a level of care based on a compre-hensive approach, placing emphasis on the total well being of each and every patient.”
