To Make an Appointment

You will need a referral from your primary care physician, as we are a specialty practice.  Following an evaluation at your first appointment, we will prepare an individualized treatment plan, which may involve a singular technique or a combination of methods to achieve optimal pain relief.

It is important to note that UCSF is a world-renowned teaching institution.  While all services are performed under the supervision of an attending physician, patients are also seen by our physicians in training, which include fellows and residents.
